Owen Coyle on the team's performance:

"The object of the exercise was to make sure we're in the draw for the quarter-final. Overall it was a very good performance from start to finish, but equally there are bits and pieces you - as a manager - think you could do better. At times we could have passed and moved it better, and that would have culminated in more chances. We scored two good goals and could have added a few more into the bargain."

Owen Coyle on Ryo Miyaichi:

"He has more than just one strength. He has many attributes. He has pace, he has two great feet. He has football intelligence for such a young man and he's driven to be the best he can be... He has a great temperament and I could be here all day waxing lyrical about him."

Millwall manager Kenny Jackett on his team's run:

"They have got a good ball retention about them and the first pass is always very safe and it is something we have to learn from... It was a good run in the FA Cup and we haven't disgraced ourselves today but we have to look forward very quickly now."

Finally, Owen Coyle on Bolton's run:

"I don't want a repeat of last season's disappointment in the semi-final, but the FA Cup is the best cup competition in the world and we want to go as far as we can."
