    Time:90'
    • Bolton Wanderers
    • West Bromwich Albion
    • 90+5' PEEEP! PEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEP!!! A well deserved three points for Bolton but West Brom must improve their finishing otherwise it could be a long New Year for them.
    • 90+4' Bolton are playing out time now. West Brom will regret those missed chances.
    • 90' Five minutes additional time
    • 88' CAUTION: Brunt of West Brom
    • 85' GOAL FOR BOLTON!!! Would you believe it! Elmander bulldozers his way through the West Brom defence. He looks to pick out Klasnic but it's blocked. It comes back to Elmander and he sidefoots inside the near post. Game over.
    • 85' WEST BROM SUB: Cox replaces Mulumbu
    • 84' West Brom are preparing Simon Cox to come on.
    • 82' Brunt's long, driven cross from the left is headed out by Robinson. Corner. Brunt to take. All the way through and cleared by Mark Davies.
    • 82' Time's running out for West Brom.
    • 80' Another free-kick to Bolton. Out on the left. Towards the far post and Kevin Davies but he gets too much on it and West Brom clear.
    • 79' BOLTON SUB: Klasnic replaces Lee
    • 78' CHANCE FOR BOLTON! Holden's free-kick from 20 yards is turned behind for a corner. Cleared for another corner.
    • 77' Bolton launch a ball forward and force a corner. A goal now would seal three points.
    • 75' BOLTON SUB: Mark Davies replaces Muamba
    • 75' 15 minutes to go and West Brom are running out of time
    • 73' It's all West Brom. Still. If the visitors score one I'll wager they'll go onto win but they've missed every chance they've created.
    • 70' CHANCE FOR WEST BROM! Brunt gets down the left and crosses. It falls to Miller and he volleys for the left corner with Jaaskelainen nowhere but Cahill blocks.
    • 70' James Morrison isn't happy about being taken off. He may regret that in the morning.
    • 69' SUB FOR WEST BROM: Miller replaces Morrison
    • 68' CHANCE FOR WEST BROM! Brunt gives a no-look pass to Odemwingie inside the box. He shoots for the far post but it's two yards wide. He had to score.
    • 67' The corner is cleared.
    • 66' Morrison wide to Brunt. His cross is towards Odemwingie but he can't get on the end of it and Bolton clear. Corner.
    • 65' Elmander down the left. Back to Robinson. Knight tries to get Lee away beyond Cech but it's too far.
    • 63' SUB FOR BOLTON: Ricketts replaces Steinsson
    • 61' Relief for Bolton after Morrison's brush with Lee. Free-kick for the Trotters.
    • 60' It's West Brom all the way now. Only Carson is inside the West Brom half. Bolton can't get a foot on the ball.
    • 57' Brunt in centre field. Onto Odemwingie...he releases Morrison who is in on Jaaskelainen but he makes a real mess of it and the keeper does well to smother it.
    • 54' West Brom continue to pass it in midfield. But the ball forward is cut out by Knight. West Brom have a throw on the right.
    • 51' West Brom should be level but if they don't take these chances what do they expect?
    • 48' OFF THE POST!! Tchoyi gets to the byline and chips in the cross. Brunt beats Jaaskelainen to the ball but can only head it against the neat post and Robinson hacks clear.
    • 46' Tchoyi shoots from a tight angle on the left but Jaaskelainen puts it behind for a corner. Cleared.
    • 45' Bolton get the second period off and underway...
    • 45+1' There goes the half-time whistle. See you in 15 minutes.
    • 45' There will be one minute additional time
    • 43' Just a few minutes to the break. Bolton on top but West Brom are very much in this game.
    • 41' CHANCE FOR WEST BROM! Jara cuts inside from the right and shoots but Jaaskelainen tips it over the bar for a corner. Which is cleared.
    • 39' GOAL FOR BOLTON!!! Lovely goal. Taylor lays the ball into the path of Lee. He runs on and draws Carson. He doubles back on himself, passes to Taylor who slides it into the net through the legs of Carson from six yards.
    • 37' CAUTION: Cahill of Bolton for a foul on Odemwingie
    • 35' Bolton try to break but Jara stops the attack. He puts Odemwingie away. Dorrans and Brunt are sqaure in the box and unmarked. His pass is terrible and Bolton survive.
    • 34' ...Brunt's free-kick is woeful and it ends up nearer row z than the back of the Bolton net.
    • 33' Muambe fouls Odemwingie. Free-kick. Brunt fancies it.
    • 32' Elmander has a header on goal of sorts. It was well above him and it loops harmlessly into the arms of Carson.
    • 30' Muamba shoots from 25 yards out and it's way wide on the right side.
    • 30' 15 minutes to the break and this half has flown by.
    • 28' The game has got a bit scrappy as both team's try to control the midfield.
    • 27' Brunt charges foward but Cahill steps in.
    • 27' Bolton throw on the left towards Elmander by the byline but it goes out for a goal kick.
    • 26' Good play from West Brom but they haven't scored. Bolton might make them pay for this.
    • 24' Cech thunders down the left and crosses. It fizzes across the six yard box at head height but no-one can get on the end of it.
    • 23' Both sides are playing a very open game and Odemwingie is back to his best after whatever knock he got in the opening moments.
    • 21' Odemwingie screws an effort wide from six yards on the angle after Brunt's chipped ball.
    • 20' Dorrans breaks from midfield. Left to Tchoyi....he cuts inside. Shoots...but it's wide by a whisker.
    • 19' Lee gets down the right after being released by Davies. His cross is stopped and cleared by Scharner. Good defending.
    • 18' Bolton should be ahead. What a chance that was.
    • 17' ...it's flicked wide to Muamba then into the path of Elmander. He steps into the box then blazes a shot well over the bar. Awful finishing.
    • 16' West Brom have the first corner but Bolton clear. And break with Lee....
    • 15' First shot in anger and it's from West Brom. Dorrans' effort from 20 yards is well held by Jaaskelainen
    • 14' Elmander does well on the left side of the box. Chips a cross to the far post but it's too far for Lee.
    • 13' Jara tries to advance down the right wing but Taylor sheperds it out for a goal kick.
    • 11' Odemwingie comes off from some treatement. Doesn't look clever. But he's back on again.
    • 11' Holden's ball forward in too long and it's through to Carson.
    • 10' First bit of pressure from West Brom and Dorrans and Brunt are right in the middle of it.
    • 9' Elmander tries to burst through in the inside left position but it runs out for a goal kick.
    • 8' Robinson forward to Holden. Back to Kevin Davies who swings it in. Cleared by Scharner.
    • 7' Brunt tries to play Dorrans in behind the Bolton backline but it's flagged for offside. Tight.
    • 6' Taylor and Holden combine on the left but it comes to nothing.
    • 4' Cahill with a terrible clearance and West Brom have a throw on the left.
    • 3' Good play from Bolton in midfield. Owen Coyle has them playing some lovely football. Taylor gets a throw on the left.
    • 2' Tchoyi charges down the left but Cahill comes across to tackle.
    • 1' Kevin Davies tries to play in Elmander but Tamas is alive to it.
    • 1' Bolton are in white shirts and blue shorts. West Brom are in their away strip of all dark blue.
    • 15.00 We're off and underway...
    • 14.59 We're all set for the off. The Reebok is packed and the crowd in fine voice. Both captains toss the coin and West Brom will kick us off from right to left...
    • 14.50 So then, Bolton and West Brom have beaten the weather which is good news for all of us. Plenty to play for this afternoon. Bolton could go fifth whereas West Brom could lift themselves into eighth place. above both Newcastle United and Liverpool.

    • 14.35 Team news to follow...
    • 14.30 The Baggies have lost all four of their Premier League matches on Boxing Day, scoring just one goal.
    • 14.30 The Trotters have only lost one of their seven matches at home on the 26th December in the Premier League era.
    • 14.25 West Brom's leading scorer Peter Odemwingie is fit to return. Roberto Di Matteo will continue to monitor the fitness of midfielder Chris Brunt whose training this week has been restricted because of an ongoing groin problem. The postponement of the Wolves game has enabled midfielder Graham Dorrans (illness) and defender Paul Scharner (leg) to fully recover.
    • 14.20 Bolton midfielder Mark Davies returns from suspension after a one-match ban following his dismissal in the victory over Blackburn a fortnight ago. Winger Lee Chung-yong could play his last game before joining up with South Korea for the Asia Cup in Qatar.
