    Time:90'
    • Bolton Wanderers
    • Wigan Athletic
    • 90'+8 And that's the final whistle!! It's ended 1-1 at The Reebok, but Owen Coyle will rue a number of missed chances - and a great reaction save from Wigan substitute keeper Mike Pollitt! Thanks for joining us!
    • 90'+7 Petrov again looks for Elmander. It's bouncing around but Wigan clear as the clock ticks down.
    • 90'+6 Sub for Wigan. Stam is off and on comes Callum McManaman.
    • 90'+4 MUAMBA!! Davies again leaps high and Muamba scoops the ball over from close range!!
    • 90'+2 ELMANDER!! Must be!! No!! Great save by Pollitt!! Kevin Davies heads the ball on to Elmander and the Swede volleys it goalwards from 12 yards. Superb reaction save!
    • 90'+1 Sub for Bolton. Taylor is off and on comes Robbie Blake.
    • 90' There'll be eight minutes of added time.
    • 90' DAVIES!! Another superb ball in by Petrov. Kevin Davies rises but heads it over at the far post!! Good chance for Bolton!!
    • 89' PETROV!! Drives it and Pollitt gets down well to beat to at his near post!! Good save by the sub stopper!!
    • 89' Muamba tries a speculative effort. It's deflected meekly wide but Bolton have a corner.
    • 88' Wigan have a corner. Diame's effort is blocked by Kevin Davies. Petrov brings it out.
    • 87' We're in the last three minutes of normal time, but there'll be some considerable time added on for Kirkland's injury.
    • 86' In it comes. Muamba looks to get on the end of it, but Wigan will clear their lines.
    • 85' Mark Davies wins a free-kick in a good position. Taylor will deliver.
    • 84' Petrov straight into the action. Zips down the Wigan right, plays the ball in but Elmander hadn't gambled!
    • 83' Sub for Bolton. Rodrigo is off and on comes Martin Petrov.
    • 82' McArthur with a thumping effort! Blocked by the Bolton rearguard!!
    • 81' And Stam picks up a harsh yellow card for his celebration.
    • 80' GOAL WIGAN!! Rodallega plays the ball out to Gohouri, he delivers a great ball across the six yard box and Stam slides the ball home!! 1-1!!
    • 79' Stam now for Wigan. To Diame . This is a good move by Wigan..
    • 78' RODALLEGA!! He's in on goal but is just called offside by a late flag! Close decision but it was the right one!
    • 77' ELMANDER!! He's in on goal!! Alcaraz leaves it but Pollitt stands up well and pushes the ball away!
    • 75' And that's another poor touch by Gohouri to jeers from the Bolton faithful!
    • 74' Jaaskelainen slices a clearance, but the Finn hasn't had much to do tonight!
    • 73' Phil Dowd makes a mistake and hands Wigan a throw. Caldwell appealed more in hope than expectation! And now Diame is in the box for leading with his arm.
    • 72' Poor cross by Bolton. Alcaraz clears and Ricketts is penalised for a foul on Diame. Ricketts is unimpressed and thinks Diame hit the deck too easily.
    • 70' Wigan have certainly picked up the pace in these last few minutes. Hope for the Latics?
    • 69' Gohouri with a great ball into the box, but it's out for a corner. Watson was waiting for the pull back if only the Ivorian had spotted him!
    • 67' Kevin Davies!! Great chipped ball in for Taylor and heads it just wide!! So close to a second for Bolton!!
    • 66' Straight up the other end. It's Rodallega v Cahill! And Cahill wins the tussle as Jaaskelainen gathers at his feet.
    • 65' Good ball in looking for Matt Taylor, but that's fallen behind him and he can't get the contact he wants.
    • 64' And we're back underway.
    • 63' The game is yet to restart. Kirkland is being fitted with a neck brace and there's concern on the pitch. Hopefullly, this is just a precasution. And the whole stadium rises as Kirkland is carried off.
    • 62' And Pollitt is on. The luckless Kirkland is off. And Pollitt's last appearance was the 8-0 hammering by Chelsea!
    • 59' Kirkland is still down. He may have got Elmander's knee in the face as he went for the 50-50. Will we see Mike Pollitt?
    • 57' Bolton break from the corner. Rodrigo to Elmander!! Kirkland rushes out of the box and slides in front of the Swede to clear, but the keeper is down.
    • 56' Wigan back on the attack as Knight is forced to concede the corner in front of the onrushing Ronnie Stam.
    • 55' That's no more than Bolton deserve! They've come out for this half with much more purpose!!
    • 54' GOAL BOLTON!! Mark Davies with a superb run, plays a pinpoint ball to Rodrigo in the box and the Spaniard lifts it above Kirkland to give the hosts the lead!! 1-0 Bolton!!
    • 52' Gary Caldwell is in the book for time-wasting. That looked a little harsh!
    • 50' GOHOURI! Twists into a shooting position. Strikes it!! Over Jaaskelainen's bar!! Good play by the Ivorian.
    • 49' We've had more action in the first two minutes of this half than the first 45! Let's hope it continues!
    • 48' Corner now for Bolton. Kirkland flaps at it and Cahill heads over!! Difficult chance with Cahill just leaning too far back to get over it!!
    • 47' CAHILL!! So close!! Taylor again with the free-kick and Cahill glances his header just wide!! Great start!!
    • 47' Yellow card for Figueroa. First booking of the evening and free-kick for Bolton on Ricketts.
    • 46' No changes for either side at the break.
    • 46' And we're underway again! can either side break the deadlock?
    • 45'+1 And there's no time to recover that one as Phil Dowd brings the first half to a close. It's Bolton 0 Wigan 0 at the break.
    • 45'+1 Rodrigo and Ricketts linking up as the clock ticks down. But Wigan are back in numbers and the cross is cleared. And now that's thumped into row Z as the Latics clear their lines.
    • 45' There'll be one minute of added time.
    • 45' Last minute of normal time. Figueroa tries to get a shot away but is too close to a white wall.
    • 43' KEVIN DAVIES!!! In comes the corner from Taylor. Davies rises but that looked like Zat Knight who complicated matters and the header goes wide!! Good chance for Davies!!
    • 42' Bolton win a corner, courtesy of Elmander. Is this the moment?
    • 42' Gohouri for Wigan. Looks for Thomas, but Cahill will bring it clear.
    • 41' We're in the last five minutes of the half. It remains 0-0 at The Reebok.
    • 40' The Swede is fit to continue, which is good newa for the Trotters. He's found the net nine times this season.
    • 39' Pause in play as Elmander recovers from a knock.
    • 38' Another thumping long ball deep into Wigan territory by the Bolton keeper. Robinson now, to Elmander, Kevin Davies. Good possession. In comes the cross, away by Alcaraz as both try to get on the end of it.
    • 37' Figueroa tries to drive the Latics forward. I say drive, if so, the car's stalled as he looks for support. Not much urgency there from the visitors!
    • 36' Jaaskelainen finds Rodrigo, who tries what looks like a shot, but is way off-target! Kevin Davies looks rueful in the box.
    • 35' Hendry Thomas with a foul on Mark Davies deep in the Bolton half.
    • 34' Bolton with time to play around in front of their own box. Wigan will be happy to keep them in there.
    • 34' Bit of keepy-up outside the Wigan box as neither team can bring the ball under control. Elmander is in amongst it, but has yet to make a mark on this match.
    • 32' RODALLEGA!! Curls it, but that's good hands by Jaaskelainen to push the ball away. First shot on goal goes to Wigan!
    • 31' Rodallega wins a free-kick with a ball that was driven at Zat Knight. Handball and free-kick in a dangerous position...
    • 30' There's 15 minutes to go. This half has flown by, but without one effort on goal to cheer either set of rain-soaked fans. Who'd be a supporter sometimes?
    • 29' Muamba looks for Kevin Davies. Too much on that one for the Trotters skipper.
    • 28' Jaaskelainen clears long. Another Wigan free-kick as players come together on the edge of the Wigan box.
    • 28' And Robinson jumps into Stam and this'll be a Wigan free-kick. Scrappy period of play.
    • 27' Diame is penalised for holding back Ricketts. Free-kick to Bolton midway in their own half.
    • 26' Rodrigo again tears down the Wigan left. He's had a lot of joy down there and Martinez must be concerned. Lucky for Wigan he hasn't yet been able to deliver the right cross.
    • 25' Figueroa picks it up for Wigan Rodallega is on the edge of the box. Stam with it but that's a poor cross. Jaaskelainen will claim.
    • 24' Mark Davies links up with namesake Kevin. Kirkland is there again to gather.
    • 23' Ben Watson for the Latics. He's forced backwards and the answer seems to be an old fashioned up-and-under for Wigan. More suited to the oval ball game that one!
    • 22' Midway through the first period. Kirkland is warned by ref Phil Dowd to hurry things up. Bit early for time wasting, I'd have thought!
    • 21' Bolton have another free-kick. Great ball in from Taylor. Rodrigo tries to get on the end but that's a good defensive header by James McArthur.
    • 20' Figueroa now for the visitors. To Diame. Tries to get away from Ricketts, but Ricketts sticks to his task and wins the goal kick. Good defending.
    • 19' Now the Spaniard links up with Sam Ricketts. Tries to get the cross in, but that's headed away. Bolton with the best of the possession so far.
    • 18' It's very slippery out there in the Lancashire rain, as Moreno hits the deck.
    • 17' Breaks down for the Trotters. Wigan break but that's great defending by Paul Robinson to snuff out the danger!
    • 16' Rodrigo gets away from Figueroa, crosses at the second attempt and wins a throw with Kevin Davies and Elmander waiting.
    • 15' Still waiting for the first goal effort as Gary Cahill bangs the ball beyond Taylor and out of play. A Chelsea target apparently, Cahill!
    • 13' Zat KIght tries to get on the end of a long Bolton free-kick into the box. Can't rise high enough under pressure and that's out for a Wigan goal kick.
    • 12' Diame is on - finally - for Cleverley.
    • 11' Rodallega on the attack. Teases on the edge of the Bolton box, but then it hits his own knee and bounces to safety.
    • 11' Free-kick to Wigan. The change has still to be made but it looks like Diame is the man to come on for the luckless Cleverley.
    • 10' In to the near post. Wigan get it away.
    • 9' And Cleverley is off! Wigan down to 10 men at the monent as Gouhouri puts a poor header behind for a Bolton corner.
    • 9' Uh-oh! Looks like the game may be over for Tom Cleverley! Could be his hamstring!
    • 8' Taylor again. Looks for Kevin Davies. Antolin Alacaraz makes the clearance. Mark Davies picks it up but there's no way through this time.
    • 7' Matt Taylor launches a superb cross into the box for Bolton, Kirkland spots the danger and gets to the ball just in front of Elmander!
    • 6' Good ball in from Steve Gouhouri now, comes back to him but he mistimes his volley and clears for Bolton unwittingly!
    • 5' Ben Watson comes forward for Wigan, looks for Figueroa but that's good cover by Gary Cahill.
    • 4' Sloppy work by Rodrigo Moreno, but he's got away with it as the ball goes back to Jaaskelainen.
    • 3' Still Bolton press. In comes a long throw. Good claim by Chris Kirkland. No problesm with that back injury apparently!
    • 2' Straight up the other end and Bolton have a corner! In it comes and that's cleared comfortably though. Bright start!
    • 1' Good early poosession by Wigan. The ball is crossed into the box early and there's some indecision by Jussi Jaaskelainen. Figueroa is offside.
    • 1' Quick Wigan huddle and it's the Latics who get us underway!
    • 19:57 And here they come! Bolton in their traditional white and Wigan in all black.
    • 19:54 Eager fans are ripping open their foam hands as we await the two teams.
    • 19:33 And it's tight at the foot of the table. The bottom four are all in action tonight. Keep tabs on Aston Villa v Sunderland, Wolves v Chelsea and Newcastle v West Ham with our LIVE coverage. Bolton fans will no doubt have one eye on Sunderland, one place above them. Keep up to date on Aston Villa v Sunderland here!
    • 19:32 So alan reckons it'll be a 2-2 draw tonight, while Lofty the Lion FC goes for a comfy 3-0 victory for Bolton. Any more predictions?
    • 19:27 Martinez makes three changes to his Wigan team. Chris Kirkland plays in goal instead of Ali Al-Habsi - who's ineligible to play against his parent club - while James McArthur and Maynor Figueroa come in for Mohamed Diame and Jordi Gomez who drop to the bench.
    • 19:23 So just the one change for Owen Coyle from the starting line-up at Liverpool. Paul Robinson returns after suspension with Marcus Alonso making way. Ivan Klasnic misses out through injury as the depleted Trotters name just four subs.
    • 19:22 Our referee tonight is Phil Dowd.
    • 19:22 And the Wigan XI: Kirkland, Gohouri, G. Caldwell, Alcaraz, Figueroa, Thomas, McArthur, Stam, Cleverely, Watson, Rodallega. Subs: Pollitt, S. Caldwell, McManaman, Diame, Lopez, Robinson, Gomez.
    • 19:22 And the teams are in! Bolton line up as: Jaaskelainen, Ricketts, Knight, Cahill, Robinson, Rodrigo, Muamba, M Davies, Taylor, K Davies, Elmander, Subs: Bogdan, Alonso, Blake, Petrov.
    • 19:21 Wigan boss Roberto Martinez will be hoping Manchester United loanee Tom Cleverley can do the business tonight. He's found the back of the net in two of Wigan's last three away fixtures.
    • 19:21 But the Latics do have previous against Owen Coyle. His then Burnley side went down 3-1 to Wigan in October 2009.
    • 19:21 And if home form is anything to go by, Wigan will have their work cut out for them tonight. Bolton have lost just one of their ten home fixtures and have netted 21 times.
    • 19:20 The two sides have already met at the DW Stadium resulting in a 0-0 stalemate in October.
    • 19:19 The Trotters ran out easy 4-0 winners in the corresponding fixture last season. Johan Elmander got them underway and Kevin Davies added a penalty just after the break. Fabrice Muamba made the game safe on 53 minutes with Matt Taylor adding the fourth.
    • 19:18 Bolton, though, are unbeaten in their last four Premier League matches against the Latics and have kept three clean sheets. And Wigan have lost two of the last three at the Reebok, with their last victory coming back in December 2008.
    • 19:17 The two sides have met met 29 times in the league. Bolton have come out on top in 10, Wigan have won 11 and there have been eight draws.
    • 19:17 But Owen Coyle's Trotters have lost two on the spin and will fancy their chances of stopping the rot in what promises to be a full-blooded Lancashire derby.
    • 19:16 The Latics slipped into the bottom two following wins for Fulham and Birmingham yesterday and will be desperate for the three points.
    • 19:15 Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of tonight's Premier League clash between Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic at the Reebok.
