The Judas Plane: Fans fly banner over Turf

Today’s match began with fans looking up at the sky rather than the pitch – and the sentiment was just as fitting at the final whistle.

Just ahead of kickoff a plane was spotted approaching Turf Moor with a special message for the one once known as ‘God’ around these parts.

‘Judas Coyle – You Reap What You Sow’ read the banner circling Turf Moor – and Eddie Howe’s side had no trouble whatsoever in sending Coyle to the bottom of the Championship.

It flew around the ground several times for a good few minutes – so there was no chance of the Bolton boss missing it as he once again hid himself away in the dugout for most of the match in the face of a cauldron of boos.

The home crowd took great delight in beating him for the second time in a row at Turf Moor. Joyous cries of ‘Sacked in the morning’, ‘He’ll take you down again’ and ‘What’s the score’ rang out around the ground – but the loudest chants of all championed current manager Eddie Howe.
