    Time:90'
    • Bolton Wanderers
    • West Ham United
    • 90+2' Bolton have held on. Kevin Davies's goal gives them a vital win at the Reebok. West Ham arguably deserved at least a point, and will be bitterly disappointed.
    • 90' Surely they've done it now. West Ham are still fighting for this...unbelievable tension.
    • 86' SERIOUSLY TENSE STUFF HERE! Bolton are desperately hanging on.
    • 83' Foul by Davies on Matthew Upson. He's been immense today, the Bolton striker, battling for everything.
    • 74' West Ham are having the better of this now. Surely more chances will come their way. Can Bolton hold on?
    • 70' Davies booked for Bolton. That was a nasty tackle on Pantsil, perhaps retribution for the one in the first half.
    • 68' Sears with his first touch...Boa Morte with some great work. This game is VERY OPEN now.
    • 65' Zamora makes way for teenager Freddie Sears.
    • 65' ANOTHER GOAL RULED OUT FOR BOLTON!! Kevin Nolan was the victim this time. We await the replays.
    • 60' West Ham are having a go at this. Zamora bursts forward, but his cross is wayward.
    • 55' WHAT A DOUBLE CHANCE FOR WEST HAM. Boa Morte shot first, then Ashton executed a wonderful overhead kick which Al Habsi was forced to push over.
    • 53' There's no telling how vital that goal could prove for Bolton. To be fair, they've deserved it, having been the better of two poor sides.
    • 50' Carlton Cole is on for the Hammers. Collison has come off.
    • 46' GOOOOOOOALL BOLTON!!! Matthew Taylor with a corner on their right..cleared only as far as DAVIES, WHO SCORES!
    • 46' Diouf with an early cross...Green is forced to palm Davies's header over.
    • 46' And we're under way in the second half. Let's hope for some GOALS, and some passes would be nice too.
    • 45' Half-time at the Reebok. Stalemate so far, but Bolton are shading it. Having said that, both sides have been woefully poor.
    • 42' Scrappy game so far. West Ham have a throw deep in Bolton territory. Eventually it's played in, but the home side clear comfortably.
    • 38' Pantsil picked up a yellow just before the disallowed goal for a nasty tackle on Davies.
    • 38' BOLTON SCORE! But no, Diouf is deemed to have been in an offside position. West Ham are all over the shop here.
    • 36' Great run and shot from Dean Ashton - well saved by Al Habsi.
    • 33' Andy O'Brien with a decent effort for Bolton. His header lacks power and Green laps it up.
    • 29' Kevin Davies with a neat turn, he shapes to shoot and sends a dribbling effort wide...It's deflected and from the corner Davies sends a header goalwards. SCOTT PARKER CLEARS OFF THE LINE!
    • 27' Steve Bruce is in the crowd. Poor Steve Bruce. It's been dour so far.
    • 23' Excellent work from Zamora, who refuses to give up and wins the Hammers a throw deep in Bolton's half. The home side clear.
    • 19' Kevin Davies is offside for Bolton...MEANWHILE, FULHAM LEAD AGAINST READING
    • 17' WHAT A TERRIBLE FREE-KICK FROM CAMPO! All of Bolton waited in the West Ham box and he sends one into the crowd. Ghastly.
    • 14' Ivan Campo's appeals for a for a free-kick fall on deaf ears. El Hadji Diouf then wastes a corner.
    • 11' JLloyd Samuel with a low shot, comfortably saved by Robert Green. That was the first real opening of a cagey game thus far.
    • 8' Bolton are struggling to create here so far. Gary Megson looks a worried man on the sidelines.
    • 5' West Ham with some good early pressure. Jack Collison, in for Freddie Ljungberg, earns them a corner...Dean Ashton meets it near-post...and his effort is just wide.
    • 3' Almost immediate change forced on Alan Curbishley. Anton Ferdinand is off, replaced by John Pantsil. Not the start he would have wanted.
    • 1' And we're under way at the Reebok. Bolton in their traditional white, with visitors West Ham in claret and blue. Dean Ashton and Bobby Zamora will line their line. Bolton surely MUST win here today.
  • Summary

    • 65' ANOTHER GOAL RULED OUT FOR BOLTON!! Kevin Nolan was the victim this time. We await the replays.
    • 55' WHAT A DOUBLE CHANCE FOR WEST HAM. Boa Morte shot first, then Ashton executed a wonderful overhead kick which Al Habsi was forced to push over.
    • 46' GOOOOOOOALL BOLTON!!! Matthew Taylor with a corner on their right..cleared only as far as DAVIES, WHO SCORES!
    • 38' BOLTON SCORE! But no, Diouf is deemed to have been in an offside position. West Ham are all over the shop here.
