    • Fulham
    • Bolton Wanderers
    • 90+5' The final whistle goes, and Bolton have squeeked through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup! Their reward is a trip to St Andrew's in the next round.
    • 90+5' The free-kick is launched in and pings around the box before Dempsey handles. That should be that.
    • 90+4' Holden is penalised and booked for tugging on Dempsey's shirt as the American tries to lead the break. This is the last chance for Fulham...
    • 90+3' Petrov unleashes an absolute howitzer of a strike from range which Schwarzer gets two hands to! End-to-end stuff now!
    • 90+2' Murphy makes a driving run through midfiled. He has Dempsey as an option but goes for the shot... It's a weak effort from the edge of the box, and Bogdan collects gratefully.
    • 90+1' Four minutes of added time are signalled. Can Fulham make the breakthrough?
    • 90' Zamora again! This time he reaches a ball over the top and lifts it over the onrushing Bogdan... The ball bounces wide! Thrilling end to this cup tie!
    • 89' Zamora again with his back to goal. This time he turns and shoots... He fires over the bar after slipping when he hit his shot.
    • 88' Zamora holds up well n the edge of the box. Somehow Fulham smuggle it across to Dempsey who strikes... Great diving block by Cahill! Dempsey looked ofdds on to score there! That could be the tackle which sends Bolton through to the quarter-finals!
    • 86' Another Fulham corner. Hangeland and co all come up. baird glances wide of the far post.
    • 85' Bolton press a Fulham throw-in deep in the home sdie's half. Elmander flicks it over Hangeland's head but can't get round the other side of the big Norwegian!
    • 84' Alonso's cross is deep... Too deep for Davies to reach.
    • 83' Fulham win yet another corner, their ninth of the game. This time Murphy's delivery is met by Dempsey... Headed over the bar! Time running out for Fulham.
    • 82' Johnson drives into the Bolton box and works half a yard to shoot... Holden tracks back to tackle just as Johnson was about to pull the trigger!
    • 81' Baird slings in a long throw. It's flicked on by zamora and first Johnson then Dempsey try and fail to connect with overhead kicks!
    • 80' Wheater blocks Sidwell's shot from the edge of the box for a corner. Sidwell is yet to score his first goal in a Fulham shirt.
    • 79' Bolton substitution: Johan Elmander replaces Klasnic.
    • 79' Zamora fires in a cross fromt he left towards the near post, which Bogdan punches away just before Johnson can pounce.

    • 74' The ball breaks for Petrov inside the Fulham box in acres of space... Saved by Bogdan at the near post! Corner to Bolton.
    • 72' It will be Murphy to strike... Bent round the wall but just the wrong side of the upright!
    • 71' Murphy is fouled on the edge of the box by davies, who can't believe it! The Bolton captain has got very little case to be aggrieved. Great chance for Fulham to level here...
    • 69' Fulham come on the counter but Zamora strays way offside. Still a bit rusty, perhaps.
    • 69' GREAT SAVE! Lee gets down the rigth and his cross is met by Klasnic on the half-volley, and Schwarzer makes a great reaction save to beat it away!
    • 68' Fulham substitution: Bobby Zamora replaces Gera. The returning striker's first act is to concede a free-kick!
    • 67' Full FA Cup quarter-final draw: Stoke City v West Ham United/Burnley; Manchester City/Aston Villa v Everton/Reading; Birmingham City v Fulham/Bolton Wanderers; Manchester United v Leyton Orient (III)/Arsenal
    • 66' Bolton continuing to pucsh their way back into this game now, and they win a corner. It's easily cleared by Johnson, and goes all the way back to Bogdan.
    • 65' Swift break from Bolton and Petrov surges down the left. The low cross comes across for Davies, who decides to take a touch but that gives Fulham's defenders time the track backa nd make the tackle.
    • 64' Cahill brings down Johnson again, and gets a final warning from the referee. An unpopular decision among the west London faithful.
    • 63' Muamba wins the ball in midfield and picks out Petrov, but the Bulgarian's cross is high and long.
    • 62' Warm applause for Bobby Zamora as he goes for a jog up the touchline.
    • 61' Robinson clashes with Dempsey. his challenge was late and sloppy. Murphy floats the free-kick towards Hangeland... Alonso clears.
    • 60' Davies turns on the edge of the box and lays it off for Muamba... Fired off target! decent move fromt he Trotters there, against the run of play.
    • 59' Replays show Petrov was clearly the aggressor, but Baird's reaction deserved censure too.
    • 58' In the end, the referee calls the pair over and books each of them. Petrov seems to take it in good humour, but stops just short of applauding the decision.
    • 57' Petrov and Baird tussle again. Referee Atwell consults his assistant referee amid claims from Baird that he was elbowed...
    • 56' Fulham move plenty of men forward now as Sidwell checks on to his left foot and strikes a low effort rigth at Bogdan! The Cottagers beginning to have more joy coming forward now.
    • 55' Nice link-up in midfield from Bolton as Klasnic and Muamba combine to find Davies, but the bolton skipper can't reach it before it's cleared.

    • 51' Muamba is the first name in the referee's book for a foul on Dembele.
    • 50' Mark Hughes has got Bobby Zamora and Diomansy Kamara on the bench. He'll surely introduce one of them if the score stays like this.
    • 49' Lee is shoved over by Dempsey as the American fights for the ball in the Bolton half.
    • 48' NEWSFLASH! The winner of this match will travel to St Andrew's to face Birmingham City in the next round! More news on the draw to follow...
    • 47' Dembele jinks his way forward, skips a tackle and fires a shot over the bar. He looks Fulham's best way back into this match.
    • 46' Bolton kick off and the second half is underway!
    • 45+3' The half-time whistle is greeted by cries of "You don't know what you're doing" from the Fulham fans directed at referee Stuart Atwell.
    • 45+2' The home fans are unhappy after Wheater pulls on Demebele's shirt and Fulham gain no advantage. The official has let plenty of those go.
    • 45+1' Three minutes of added time are signalled.
    • 45' Aaron Hughes rises above Davies to head a cross from deep back to Schwarzer.
    • 44' Murphy finds Dembele who tees up Johnson on the edge of the box... The shot is blocked. Bolton have hardly let Fulham get in behind them so far, despite the hosts seeing a lot more of the ball.
    • 43' Klasnic pulls on Sidwell's shirt. The referee rightly plays the aadvantage. Murphy's through ball almost meets Johnson's run, but it's intercepted just in time.
    • 41' Dempsey has a pop from 20 yards out or so... Flashed wide of the near post!
    • 40' Gera is complaining that Davies jumped with him with elbows up. Again, a free-kick is the only punishment meted out by the offical.
    • 38' Great persistence from Gera ends with him hooking a cross in fromt he byline, but his fellow Hungarian bogdan catches comfortably at the near post. Lots of huff and puff from Fulham, but no real cutting edge as yet.
    • 37' Cahill is OK to continue playing, and the game resumes.
    • 36' Baird prepares to take a throw but it's delayed as Cahill is receiving treatment. Not sure what happened to him, but it appeared to stem from a fairly innoccuous collision with Dempsey.
    • 35' Bolton clear agan but Fulham keep it in their half. Gera's ball down the channel is too early for Johnson. Goal kick to Bolton.
    • 34' Cahill fouled by Johnson in midfield. An unnecessary, although it did help delay the Fulham move forward. Dembele wins another corner with another dangerous cross.
    • 33' The first cross is headed away and the second ball is glanced on by Johnson but it runs through to Bogdan. Johnson didn't realise he had time to take a touch.
    • 32' Dembele's cross causes problems and yields a corner for Fulham.
    • 31' Fulham stepping it up a gear now as Gera's ball across to Sidwell sees the former Aston Villa midfielder's shot blocked. Dembele's chipped ball goes out of play.
    • 30' Dembele with a couple of stepovers before he squares the ball to Gera on the edge of the box... The Hungarian lent back as he struck and fired over the bar.
    • 29' Dembele squares a nice pass to Gera, who feeds Johnson. Fulham have plenty forward, but again Bolton's back line holds firm.
    • 28' Warm applause fromt he home fans for their veteran keeper as he takes the free-kick.
    • 27' Schwarzer got caught full in the face by Davies, and takes a moment to have it treated.
    • 26' Petrov fires in another testing cross and Kevin Davies collides with Schwarzer as the pair go for the ball. The Bolton skipper immediately raises his hand in apology to the Fulham keeper.
    • 24' Neat little move through the midfield by Fulham but again the flag goes up for offside against Johnson. This time the striker had strayed past the last defender.
    • 23' Dempsey will shoot from here... Fired into the wall. Dembele takes a throw but Bolton soon win a free-kick and can catch a breather.
    • 22' Dempsey turns and heads for goal. Muamba brings him down from behind, and Fulham have a free-kick in a good position. Several candidates hovering round the dead ball...
    • 21' Fulham have a corner. Murphy's delivery is met by Hangeland's header... An easy catch for Bogdan in the end.
    • 20' After scoring the winner against Wigan in Wednesday's fourth round replay, Klasnic has struck again in the Cup! That's his fifth goal of the season.
    • 19' GOAL!! Lovely bit of movement from Lee Chung-yong. His initial through ball is blocked but Fulham don't clear. Fabrice Muamba's low cross deflects off Brede Hangeland and back into the path Klasnic who drills it past Schwarzer!
    • 18' Bolton beginning to see more of the ball after Fulham's bright start. The visitors struggle to find a way forward as the hosts have plenty of men behind the ball.
    • 16' Alonso gets forward downt he left and sends in a first-time cross, but it is skewed over the bar.
    • 15' Johnson is flagged offside as he heads a ball back across goal for Gera. Replays show the Hungarian was offside when the initial ball came in but Johnson was not. A let-off there for Bolton.
    • 15' Square pass to Sidwell, whose strike from 20 yards is blocked by Cahill at the expense of a corner.
    • 14' Gera bends a low cross around Marcos Alonso and the ball flies low across the box. Just too far in front of Johnson.
    • 13' Fulham playing the ball around in midfield as they build patiently.
    • 12' David Wheater out-muscles Johnson as the Fulham forward tries to head off down the right wing.
    • 11' Steve Sidwell is penalised for a nasty challenge on Ivan Klasnic. Studs were showing, but referee Stuart Atwell judges a free-kick to be enough of a punishment.
    • 10' Nice hold-up play from Johnson, but Bolton defending in numbers. Fulham keep the pressure on though.
    • 9' Martin Petrov gets down the left and puts in a dangerous low cross. Schwarzer is down to claim it.
    • 8' Stuart Holden can have a pop from range... Fired off target.
    • 7' Bobby Zamora is close to a return following his long-term absence with a broken leg. Manager Mark Hughes says he won't walk straight back intot he Fulham team. Was the pun intended?
