Nat Lofthouse, who died at the age of 85 in January, scored 255 goals for the Trotters and served the club for much of his life, but it was the 1958 FA Cup final, where he scored both goals in a 2-0 triumph over Manchester United, that represented perhaps his finest Bolton moment.
Wanderers have not won the FA Cup since but they can take another step towards ending their long wait when they face Carling Cup winners Birmingham in the quarter-finals, with the victors guaranteed a trip to Wembley.
Coyle said: "Everybody knows how sad everybody was with Nat's passing. But I think it's important we remember all the good things that he brought not only to the football club but also the community.
"It would be lovely to achieve that but we know there's some difficult obstacles in the way. But we'll do everything we can to try to progress, and if it all came together then obviously it would be a marvellous occasion."
