Fabrice Muamba To Attend Bolton Wanderers V Tottenham Hotspur Premier League Clash Tonight

Fabrice Muamba will attend Bolton's Premier League home match with Tottenham this evening.

It will be the 24-year-old's first public appearance since he suffered a cardiac arrest on 17 March in the FA Cup quarter-final match between the two sides.

Muamba, whose heart stopped beating independently for 78 minutes, was discharged from the London Chest Hospital 30 days after he was admitted, having collapsed in the 41st minute of the White Hart Lane fixture.

Bolton manager Owen Coyle confirmed the former England Under-21 international's presence on the club's website.

"We are absolutely delighted that we will be able to welcome Fabrice and his family back to the Reebok," said the Scot.

"It's fitting the match is between these two clubs and he can attend. I know Fabrice is very keen to show his appreciation to both sets of fans for their support."

The midfielder has continued his rehabilitation at his Cheshire home, although it is still not known whether he will play professional football again.

Bolton lie third from bottom in the Premier League relegation zone on 34 points, although a draw tonight will lift them above QPR. A win for Tottenham meanwhile will take them to within a point of fourth-place north London rivals Arsenal in third.
