    Time:90'
    • Bolton Wanderers
    • West Ham United
    • 90'+4 FULL TIME: BOLTON 3 WEST HAM 1
    • 90'+4 PEEEEEEEEEEEP!!!PEEEEEEEEEEEEP!!!PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!!!!!! What a result for Bolton. They lift themselves out of the bottom three. For West Ham it's more doom and gloom. Robert Green's clanger didn't help. See how it affects the Premier League table here
    • 90'+3 Bolton have a free-kick on the right of the area. Maybe the icing on the cake?...Nearly, Gardner tapped it to Cohen but his shot flashed wide.
    • 90'+1 Bolton have been effective tonight. West Ham don't look good. They need Matt Upson back and soon.
    • 90' There will be four minutes added time
    • 88' BOLTON 3 WEST HAM 1
    • 88' GOAL FOR BOLTON!!! Gary Cahill powers home a header, over the head of Tomkins, from two yards after Gardner's corner. Green stayed on his line. Game over.
    • 87' Green redeems himself. Slightly. Basham tries from 20 yards but his swerving effort is palmed away by the 'keeper.
    • 85' SUB FOR WEST HAM: Da Costa replaces Collison
    • 84' Tomkins plays a cross-field ball but it sails out...Zola must make a change. Surely.
    • 83' Time is ticking away for West Ham...Davies wins another header just outside the box....Basham races onto it but his shot is over.
    • 81' SUB FOR BOLTON: Klasnic replaced by Basham
    • 80' West Ham have ten minutes to save themselves a grab a point. At the moment this is a vital victory for Bolton.
    • 76' BOLTON 2 WEST HAM 1
    • 76' GOAL FOR BOLTON!!!! Disaster for Robert Green. Gary Cahill volleys straight into the ground from 20 yards. Green doesn't hold it. Somehow. And Klasnic knees the ball into an empty net. What an error.
    • 75' SUB FOR BOLTON: Taylor replaced Gardner.
    • 74' Bolton have drifted out of this now. They need to get Klasnic involved. He's easily their best, and most dangerous, player.
    • 72' You wait and wait for a goal then two show up in the space of four minutes. Will there be a winner? A draw isn't really good either for either.
    • 70' Parker lets fly from 25 yards. Jaaskelainen makes a sweet save. Tipping it over the bar.
    • 68' BOLTON 1 WEST HAM 1
    • 68' GOAL FOR WEST HAM!!! Lovely goal from Diamanti. Franco made way on the left of the penalty area. He flicked it towards Collison who was arriving in the box. Collison laid the ball off for an advancing Diamanti ten yards out who lashed the ball home with a thunderous right-footed shot.
    • 67' Bolton free-kick on the right. Knight gets a head to it but the ball drifts out.
    • 64' BOLTON 1 WEST HAM 0
    • 64' GOAL FOR BOLTON!!!! Lee takes a one-two with Ivan Klasnic and plays a classy chip over Green from six yards out on the left-hand side of the goal area. West Ham cried for offside but Ilunga played him on. No question. Good goal.
    • 62' The second half is a huge improvement on the first but we're still awaiting a goal. Who wants it?
    • 60' Parker plays a short pass with Diamanti. The Italian creates half a yard then tries to curl a left-footed effort into the far, top corner. Jaaskelainen saves with ease.
    • 59' Bolton have a free-kick wide on the right...Taylor to take...Cohen gets a head to it but it goes straight to Green.
    • 57' This game is starting to liven up now. All we need id a goal...Franco squiggles clear 25 yards out...goes forward but his shot is blocked for a corner...which is cleared...Bolton break...but it breaks down.
    • 56' Cohen cautioned for a foul on Diamanti.
    • 55' CHANCE FOR BOLTON!! Davies released Cahill whose shot from just inside the box is blocked by Green...CHANCE FOR WEST HAM!!! Parker breaks through midfield...dummies Lee...and his shot is tipped away by Jaaskelainen.
    • 54' Bolton go up the other end...force a corner from the right...which is cleared.
    • 52' CHANCE FOR WEST HAM!! And what a chance. Franco colllected a lovely ball from Stanislas just inside the box. He was about to shoot when Knight made an awesome block. Great defending.
    • 51' Two good chances for Bolton. First Cohen strikes from six yards after a heaped ball into the box but it's cleared for a corner...from which Knight's header drifts wide of the far post with no-one on it. What a chance.
    • 49' Comedy at the Reebok. Steinsson crossed from the right. Faubert was about to clear but his feet completely went from under him leaving him on his backside. Lee couldn't take advantage.
    • 48' Just seen Tony Cottee in the stand. He looks cold too.
    • 47' Stanislas nearly gets onto a long ball but Cahill clears.
    • 47' West Ham are pretty to watch, but pretty ain't gonna getcha points.
    • 46' Tamir Cohen gets caught by Tomkins but he seems OK. For a moment he wasn't moving on the ground. He is now. Quite freely in fact.
    • 46' West Ham kick off the second half.
    • 45'+2 HALF-TIME: BOLTON 0 WEST HAM 0
    • 45'+1 Franco of West Ham cautioned for a foul on Cahill.
    • 45'+1 That's the closest West Ham have come. The ball fell to Gabbindon just outside the box and the defender swung a shot wide.
    • 45' Two minutes of added time.
    • 44' Bolton's Muamba is cautioned for tugging the shirt of Franco. Very petty.
    • 42' Bolton's long balls forward are getting predictable now. Tomkins and Gabbidon are lapping them up.
    • 39' Great chance for Bolton after the best move of the match so far. Lee broke forward...passed to Davies 35 yards out...he dummied for Klasnic behind him....Klasnic ran on but his left-footed shot swerved wide. Lovely football.
    • 38' Half chance for Bolton. Klasnic burst forward and the ball looped, high, up into the air. Davies leapt but his header flew over. Plenty of power though.
    • 35' Ten minutes to the break and neither side look like scoring. Klasnic crosses from the right. Davies heads down and Cohen volleys over.
    • 34' Ilunga bundles forward but his pass is over-hit. Bolton launch it forward...Davies wins it...it falls to Cohen 20 yards out and his effort is deflected over for a corner....Zat Knight gets above Kovac but his header loops over.
    • 33' Gary Megson is out on the touchline barking instructions. West Ham come forward...Collison's ball forward is repelled. Bolton clear but West Ham have it again.
    • 32' More Bolton pressure. Taylor's corner sees Green punch clear for another corner....this one is swung high, wide and ugly.
    • 30' Both teams have the same problem. As soon as they reach the opposition penalty area their game goes to pieces. A bit more composure and we might have seen some goals already.
    • 28' Another deflected chance for Bolton. This time Muamba gets hold of a left-footed shot from 20 yards. Jack Collison hurls himself in front of it. It takes a massive deflection and only just sneaks past the post. Green didn't have a chance.
    • 28' Muted shouts for handball as the balls leaps up at Faubert just inside the box.
    • 25' Scott Parker clashes with Fabrice Muamba. The Hammers skipper comes off worst and is forced off. But returns immediately.
    • 24' The eyes in the back of my head tell me that Dyer was limping as he left the pitch. Not sure what that means but Zola didn't take any chances and withdrew him straight away.
    • 23' Klasnic picks out Lee with a lovely flick in midfield but the midfielder cannot play the Croatian in and West Ham clear.
    • 22' Bolton are starting to get a grip again. Taylor is looking good. As soon as there's any news on Dyer I'll let you know.
    • 20' SUB FOR WEST HAM: Stanislas replaces Dyer.
    • 19' Kieron Dyer has just left the pitch. I have no idea why. he just walked off. He didn't look injured. And no substitution has been made...yet.
    • 18' Gary Cahill gets too much on Robinson's cross from the right. If he had left it Tamor Cohen was lurking.
    • 16' Ivan Klasnic has also been cautioned for what he said in the aftermath of the Davies caution. Toys. Prams. Everywhere.
    • 15 Everything for Bolton is flowing through Davies. But he's been cautioned for jumping into Robert Green. Terrible decision. It's supposed to be a contact sport non?
    • 13' Both sides look very edgy...and not in the good way. Plenty of over-hit passes and nervous headers forward. It might need a moment of magic from someone. Who will provide it?
    • 11' Parker fould Cohen 30 yards out. It's a free-kick. Very central. Taylor is lined-up behind it. He thumps it goalward and it hits Gabbidon, again, but this time it falls into Green's arms.
    • 10' First chance for West Ham. Dyer scampered down the left and struck a first-time, right-footed shot straight at Jaaskelainen from a tight angle.
    • 8' West Ham have taken eight minutes to switch from 4-4-2 to 4-5-1. It's all Bolton. And you don't say that very often.
    • 7' Another opening for Bolton. Tomkins made a mess of a ball forward and Davies was in on the left side. He tried to find Klasnic sqaure on the penalty spot but it was blocked by Gabbidon.
    • 5' First free-kick. For a foul on Davies just inside the West Ham half. Taylor launches it forward but Cahill makes a hash of the header on the edge of the box and it goes out.
    • 4' Davies is playing off of Klasnic in the Bolton front line with Taylor on the left and Lee on the right. West Ham look 4-4-2 but they've had nothing of the ball so far...and let's face it are lucky not to be behind.
    • 3' Nice play from Klasnic who finds Taylor on halfway. But the Bolton attack on the left is closed out.
    • 2' Not bad. A chance after 33 seconds. Let's hope the rest of the game is as good.
    • 1' So close for Bolton!!! Kevin Davies turns on the ball 20 yards out. He shoots but Gabbidon gets a touch on it. The deflection leaves Green totally flat-footed and the balls flies wide of the left-hand post.
    • 1' It's Bolton who get us underway. Kicking right to left.
    • - The teams have arrived on the pitch. It's mighty cold at the Reebok Stadium tonight...it's not fog drifting across the field, it's the breath of the players and everyone in the crowd who has braved the weather. Bbbrrrr!!!
    • - Gary Megson names an unchanged Bolton line-up from their 3-3 draw with Man City while his opposite number Gianfranco Zola makes a couple of changes - Kieron Dyer and Jack Collison come in for the suspended Mark Noble and Junior Stanislas.
    • - Bolton: Jaaskelainen, Steinsson, Cahill, Knight, Robinson, Lee, Muamba, Cohen, Taylor, Kevin Davies, Klasnic Subs: Al Habsi, Samuel, Elmander, Gardner, Ricketts, Basham, Andrew O'Brien
    • - West Ham: Green, Faubert, Gabbidon, Tomkins, Ilunga, Dyer, Parker, Kovac, Collison, Franco, Diamanti Subs: Kurucz, Spector, Da Costa, Nouble, Daprela, Payne, Stanislas
    • - Team news to follow...
    • - Referee: Andre Marriner (W Midlands)
    • - On an equally cheery note for all you West Ham fans, the only time the Hammers had fewer points at this stage of the season was in 2002. Yep, they got relegated.
    • - Here's a fact for the stat-junkies among you - if Bolton concede a goal tonight it will be their longest run in the top flight without a clean sheet in 73 years. Wowsers.
    • - Bolton are unbeaten in their last four Premier League games against West Ham, winning three. The Hammers last tasted Premier League victory in May 2007 when they beat Bolton 3-1 at Upton Park.
    • - Evening all. Well, this is a proper six-pointer. It could see the winner climbing out of the Premier League bottom three. See the current table here
