    • Sunderland
    • Bolton Wanderers
    • 90+2' There's the final whistle. Sunderland 4-0 Bolton.
    • 88' GOAL!!! Bent has his hat-trick now! He rounds off a fine team move involving Zenden and Campbell to make it 4-0!
    • 84' Bent hits the post for Sunderland!!! That was almost his hat-trick, but wait...it's come out to Jones, who taps home, but the flag is up. Jones was offside.
    • 79' Fine save from Jaaskelainen now to deny Jones!!! It seems Bolton have finally accepted their fate now. The belief has gone, and Sunderland can smell more goals.
    • 73' Well, this would seal it for Sunderland. Bent steps up...and sends Jaaskelainen the wrong way!!! Sunderland 3-0 Bolton! Game, set and match.
    • 72' Penalty to Sunderland!!! Darren Bent gets in behind Ricketts, who gets his legs tangles with the striker, and referee Steve Bennet points to the spot! Ricketts is then shown his second yellow, and is off!!!
    • 70' Klasnic gets his first sighter on goal with a curling right foot shot that sails over the bar.
    • 65' That goals prompts Coyle to swap Elmander for Klasnic, to massive approval from the Bolton fans, who to be fair, would probably have wanted the Croat on from the start.
    • 63' GOAL!!! It's come totally against the run of play, but Sunderland are 2-0 up!!! Darren Bent has got it! Cattermole's ball was a fine one, Bent had too much pace for Ricketts, and the power of his shot saw the ball beat Jaaskelainen. Bolton goach Owen Coyle must be absolutely sick.
    • 57' The pace of the game has gone up a notch since the first half. Bolton are desparate for an equaliser at the start of this second half.
    • 55' Fabrice Muamba has been struggling for the last few minutes with a leg injury, and is now replaced by Vladimir Weiss.
    • 54' Ricketts shows good strength to get in a cross for Elmander...saved by Gordon! Lee tries to profit from the rebound, but Sunderland snuff out the anger.
    • 49' Gardner drives a shot into the empty seats behind the goal from the edge of the area.
    • 46' Bolton get the second half underway.
    • 45+1' There's the half-time whistle. Sunderland 1-0 Bolton.
    • 41' Jones picks out the run of Alan Hutton who is through on goal...he looks to beat the 'keeper with a left foot shot...but puts it past the post!! Another golden chance for Sunderland.
    • 35' Jaaskelainen flings himself down at his near post to parry clear a well struck shot frmo Kenwyne Jones!
    • 33' Turner and Mensah are coping admirably with the aerial threat posed by Elmander and Davies for Bolton. The Trotters may no longer be as direct as they were under Gary Megson, but they do like to send their fair share of crosses into the area for their front men.
    • 28' Oof! A rather agricultural tackle there from Cana on Riccardo Gardner. The Sunderland enforcer is booked for that one.
    • 23' Bolton are outnumbered at the back as Sunderland spread it to Bent in the area, he cuts inside onto his right foot and takes the ball round the 'keeper, shoots...but his effort goes agonisingly pas the post!!! The Sunderland fans are standing with their heads in their hands, wondering how their side isn't 2-0 up! It was a lovely pass from Campbell that found Bent.
    • 21' An energetic, slightly frantic first 20 minutes. Sunderland lead, but Bolton have possibly just shaded it since the first-minute opening goal from Campbell.
    • 16' Wilshere strides fforward menacingly for Bolton, but Turner is there to block the Arsenal-loanee's cute through ball.
    • 13' Hung Yong blasts one high and wide for Bolton, whose body language has been good since conceding that opening goal.
    • 11' It has come straight out and Sunderland break through Darren Bent, he takes on his man and tries his luck from 20 yards...but that's comfortable for Jaaskelainen.
    • 10' Davies collects the ball on the edge of the area and fires a tame shot in that is nevertheless deflected wide for a corner.
    • 4' Elmander turns sharply to squeeze in a shot that goes agonisingly past the post for Bolton.
    • 3' Well, Sunderland have been on a shocking run recently, but that goal has got the crowd fired up! Plenty of empty seats, but still a great noise in the Stadium of Light tonight.
    • 1' GOAL!!! Frazier Campbell gives Sunderland the lead in just the first minute!!! Lorik Cana hoisted a hopeful high ball to the back post, where Campbell cuahgt his defender napping, stole in and bounced his close range volley in off the ground!!
    • 1' Sunderland kick off the first half.
    • 19:40 The man in the middle tonight is Steve Bennett.
    • 19:35 Bolton team: Jaaskelainen, Robinson, Ricketts, Knight, Steinsson, Gardner, Wilshere, Muamba, Lee, Kevin Davies, Elmander. Substitutes: Al Habsi, Samuel, Taylor, Riga, Klasnic, Andy O'Brien, Weiss.
    • 19:35 Sunderland team: Gordon, Ferdinand, Turner, Mensah, Hutton, Malbranque, Cana, Cattermole, Campbell, Jones, Bent. Substitutes: Carson, Bardsley, McCartney, Zenden, Da Silva, Kilgallon, Mwaruwari
    • 19:30 Bolton, meanwhile, have kept just one clean sheet in their last 15 Premier League away matches, though their 2-1 win at West Ham at the weekend will boost their confidence.
    • 19:30 Sunderland have gone 14 games without a win, the longest run of any side in the Premier League this season, and have scored just two goals in their last six Premier League games.
