Bolton plan Fabrice Muamba mosaic tribute at Blackburn game
Published: 24th Mar 2012 12:01:44
A mosaic spelling out the name and shirt number of Fabrice Muamba will be displayed by Bolton fans ahead of the team's home game against Blackburn.
Muamba, 23, is still in hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest during Bolton's FA Cup tie with Tottenham at White Hart Lane last Saturday.
Fans in the lower tier of the Nat Lofthouse stand at the Reebok Stadium will raise posters reading "Muamba 6".
A video compilation of his career will be shown on the ground's big screen.
There will then be a period of applause before the game kicks off.
The club has asked fans to be in their seats by 14:50 GMT to take part in the show of support for the player.
Bolton's scheduled Premier League match away at Aston Villa on Tuesday was postponed following the midfielder's collapse.
Football shirt and scarf tributes have been left outside Bolton's ground throughout the week.
Muamba's father Marcel and fiancee Shauna Magunda released a joint statement on Friday about the player's condition.
It said: "Even though Fabrice has made great progress over the last couple of days, he is still in intensive care and still has a long period of recovery ahead."
"He has asked that you please keep him in your prayers."
Bolton manager Owen Coyle said playing the game against Blackburn would be "trying circumstances for everyone".
He said: "We are a tight-knit group of players. We are trying to build a family club here and Fabrice is a huge part of that.
"We have to be proud that we are at a fantastic club and do ourselves justice in football terms, knowing our thoughts will be with Fabrice."
