    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • 90+3' A first home win of the season for Bolton. No more than they deserve. A 5-0 victory. Stoke all over the place in the second period.
    • 90+1' Zat Knight replaces Joe Riley for the home side. Has had a great day for Bolton.
    • 89' Three minutes to be added.
    • 88' Two defeats in the league in a week for Stoke. Certainly not handling the Europa League aftermath well.
    • 87' Darren Pratley replaces Nigel Reo-Coker for Bolton.
    • 86' The Stoke fans heading for the exit doors. Crouch turns in the home box, but lifts the volley over the bar.
    • 85' Riley makes a fabulous run down the flank. Tuncay inches away from tucking that home for number six.
    • 84' Tuncay wheeled on to take over from that man Klasnic, who has enjoyed a fine afternoon for the home team.
    • 83' Begovic does just enough to keep the ball out. Lovely pass from Eagles again, but Muamba's shot is saved at close range.
    • 82' Cries of we want six as Crouch fails to nod home from Walters' cross. The Bolton fans in party mood after five straight losses.
    • 81' GOAL! Klasnic pounces to nod the ball over the line after Wheater had won the header from Eagles' corner. 5-0 and that is sweet revenge for the FA Cup semi-final loss.
    • 80' Bolton win another corner to be taken by Eagles. The home side's 11th of the day.
    • 79' Walters needs to watch his step. Takes out Robinson with a late one having already been booked.
    • 78' Bolton boss Owen Coyle out of his dugout looking a whole lot happier.
    • 77' Eagles drives the free-kick through the wall, but just wide of goal.
    • 76' Stoke boss Tony Pulis looking a bit shellshocked as Walters is booked for a late challenge on Mark Davies.
    • 75' Stoke well and truly shredded. Bolton fans want five for their 5-0 loss to Stoke in the FA Cup semi-final. Wouldn't put it beyond them.
    • 74' GOAL!! Bolton move 4-0 clear. A superb move by Bolton. Davies to Klasnic and his pass sends Eagles in to lift the ball over Begovic. Superb stuff from the home side.
    • 73' Muamba decides to try and get in on the act, but well wide this time.
    • 72' Bolton again cut open Stoke with a fine move. Nice play by Eagles before Reo-Coker's driven shot is clasped by Begovic.
    • 71' Kenwyne Jones replaces Jermaine Pennant, and Danny Higginbotham is on for Andy Wilkinson.
    • 70' Danny Higginbotham replaces Glenn Whelan.
    • 69' Pennat looking for Crouch or Walters, but finds nobody and there is going to be a triple change here for the visitors.
    • 68' Wheater across to make a fine tackle on Crouch. Corner to Stoke. Whipped in by Pennant, but the ball makes its way through a posse of bodies. No takers on hand for Stoke.
    • 67' Delap with another long throw-in. All far too predictable as Bolton deal with the danger again. Stoke really need to change the plan here.
    • 66' Eagles sweeps in the corner, but Bolton have another one seconds later before Riley makes a fine tackle on Jerome.
    • 65' Bolton in dreamland now as they move 3-0 clear. Huth forced to head behind his own goal from Riley's cross.
    • 64' GOAL!! Klasnic thumps a stunning shot beyond Begovic from the edge of the box. Lovely pass from Eagles to Robinson. One strike and the ball hits the net via a post.
    • 63' Stoke appeal for handball against young Riley, but replays show that it came off the Bolton player's shoulder. Good decision by the referee.
    • 62' Huth meets the long throw-in of Delap with his head. Ball scrambled frantically away by Bolton. Stoke a real handful in the air.
    • 61' Wheater back to make a timely tackle on Jerome. Had to get that clearance right there. Fine defending.
    • 60' Klasnic drives the ball at goal with his left foot. Plenty of power, but not really the direction. Goalkick to the visitors.
    • 59' Cahill on the charge before Mark Davies is taken out late by Whelan. Free-kick chance for the home side.
    • 58' Huth heads the ball goalwards from Delap's long throw. Nodded away by Mark Davies. Not sure that was going to hit the net, but Davies right to take no chances.
    • 57' Kevin Davies keeps the ball in play from Reo-Coker's cross. Begovic finally gets there, but not ovely convincing.
    • 56' Wheater clears the ball after Cahill had won the header at the back post from Eagles's delivery.
    • 55' Woodgate wins the ball from Klasnic and Bolton have a corner here.
    • 54' Riley's cross is met by Cahill, but Woodgate clears. Begovic comes out to win the ball from Muamba.
    • 53' Upson takes out Kevin Davies, and the home side have a free-kick. Late, sliding tackle by Upson it must be said.
    • 52' Pennant hangs up a cross. Comes back to Walters on the other side. Met by Jerome, but the ball just drops wide of the target. Decent effort by the Stoke forward.
    • 51' Decent delivery from Eagles before Muamba's shot is blocked. Rilley across seconds later to make the tackle on Jerome.
    • 50' Riley showing his fine adventure getting down the pitch. Cross blocked and the home side have a corner.
    • 49' Pennant's free-kick met by Crouch, but Jerome is offside and the home side can launch this down the pitch at their leisure.
    • 48' Kevin Davies deemed to have fouled Woodgate. Stoke will stick this into the mixer.
    • 47' Jääskeläinen taking no chances as he hammers it up the park.
    • 46' We are off and running in the second half.
    • 45+2' Jääskeläinen forced to claw the ball out from under his bar. Really frantic end to the half, but Bolton preserve their 2-0 lead. Life in this one yet, even at 2-0 in favour of the home side.
    • 44' Two minutes to be added to the half.
    • 43' Looks like we are heading for the break at 2-0 in favour of the home side. Robinson wins the ball from Walters, but he is going to be penalised for that.
    • 42' Kevin Davies with a push on Walters, and the visitors have a free-kick that Begovic will hammer long in the Bolton area.
    • 41' Pennant back on his feet by the looks of things. Stoke give the ball back to Jääskeläinen, and Bolton get us off and running again with the goalkick.
    • 40' Pennant is in a fair bit of pain out there. Not sure if he is going to be able to continue.
    • 39' Stoke pick up the ball at the halfway line. Pennant on the charge, but he falls awkwardly, and is in a spot of bother. Seems to be an issue with the left knee.
    • 38' Bolton haven't won at the Reebok Stadium since beating Arsenal in April.
    • 37' Bolton not exactly carving up Stoke for fun, but they have scored with the two goals that matter. Riley managing to throw over a few telling balls.
    • 36' Riley with a lovely ball to the back post. Headed away by Woodgate before Klasnic can't pick out a team-mate with a cross.
    • 35' Eagles drives at Huth, who is forced to concede another corner. The fifth of the day is nodded out by Whelan.
    • 34' Wheater across to make a fine tackle on Whelan. Solid defending by him before Stoke head back to Begovic in the visiting goal.
    • 33' Crouch is penalised for a handling offence. Not too happy about that. Bolton seem to be winning most of the balls that matter.
    • 32' Paul Robinson guilty of giving the ball away. Poor, poor play. Should be better distribution than that.
    • 31' Eagles with the ball to the back post. Picks out Kevin Davies, but he can't attack the ball at the back post. Golden chance for Bolton, but Davies can't convert as it flies wide.
    • 30' Walter takes out Reo-Coker, and the home team have a free-kick just outside of the Stoke box.
    • 29' Bolton remember would be celebrating a first home win of the Premier League season here as Jääskeläinen again wallops the ball long down the park.
    • 28' Bolton with six shots on target compared to three by Stoke. Wheater alert to head out the cross by Walters.
    • 27' Kevin Davies with another fine ball across goal that is cleared by Huth before Muamba drives a shot over the bar.
    • 26' Muamba and Reo-Coker really giving a solid edge to the Bolton midfielder. Wheater blocks Jerome from running through, but nothing illegal there.
    • 25' Bolton will still be in the bottom three with a victory here after Wolves beat Wigan 3-1, but they will only be three points off 11th place - occupied by Stoke.
    • 24' Klasnic takes a boot between the legs from Woodgate. A real sore one. He is going to need a spot of treatment for that.
    • 23' Fine finish from outside of the area. Bolton suddenly in the driving seat, but Begovic is having a bit of a nightmare out there.
    • 22' GOAL! Eagles drives the shot beyond Begovic after the keeper refused to pick the ball up from Huth's passback. Bolton now with a 2-0 lead.
    • 21' All a bit scrappy at the moment. Reo-Coker tries to win space, but Woodgate is there to clear the danger.
    • 20' Jerome catches Robinson in the face with a late one, and Bolton have a free-kick that Jääskeläinen will hammer down the park.
    • 19' Delap looks for Walters with the long throw-in. Flicked on by him before Crouch gets a header in, but again Bolton deal with the danger.
    • 18' Whelan picks out Walters, but that fails to trouble the Bolton defence. Jääskeläinen with the goalkick for Bolton.
    • 17' Crouch is taken out of the action late, and the visitors have a free-kick 40 yards out.
    • 16' Pennant plays a pretty awful ball from one side of the pitch to the other. Flies out of the park before Begovic collects moments later.
    • 15' A real cup tie match this one. Both sides really going at it with some intensity.
    • 14' Some neat footwork by Crouch in the box. Turning well, but fires the shot through the bodies and into the arms of Jääskeläinen.
    • 13' Ball tossed in at some pace, but this time Kevin Davies is back defending before Bolton clear Pennant's corner.
    • 12' Delap with another one of those long throws. Met by Crouch, but it skims off the top of his head. Delap has another throw-in on the other side.
    • 11' Davies guilty of pushing Upson in the box and the visiting side have a free-kick.
    • 10' Bolton pick up the ball at the back. Reo-Coker with a fine ball to the back post from Cahill's pass. Cross knocked behind by Huth for a corner.
    • 9' Delap with one of this long throw-ins. Met by the head of Kevin Davies who nods it out of the danger area.
    • 8' Woodgate taking no chances as he knocks the ball out of play in his own half.
    • 7' Stoke have lost their last three away league games, conceding nine goals and netting just once. Need a quick response here.
    • 6' Mark Davies tries his luck from distance with Begovic tipping the shot behind for a corner. Bolton on the front foot.
    • 5' Pennant bounds beyond Robinson. Crosses for Crouch, but he can't force the ball home as Bolton clear the danger. Almost the leveller.
    • 4' Davies penalised for fouling Upson. No doubt here that Bolton are well up for this one in the opening minutes of the game.
    • 3' Begovic again involved to nudge a long-range shot from Eagles wide of the goal. Almost a second for the home side. Stoke boss Tony Pulis is shouting at referee Howard Webb. Still furious with that goal, but it looked perfectly acceptable.
    • 2' GOAL! Klasnic squares the ball to Kevin Davies and he slots the ball in the net after Begovic was penalised for collecting the ball from a passback. Stoke are furious. Mayhem at the Reebok.
    • 1' Bolton get his one off and running after a minute's silece for the fallen is well observed.

    • 14.55 Teams out on the pitch for this one. Looks like a glorious day for football. A Premier League start for Joe Riley for Bolton.
    • 14.50 Match odds for this one: Bolton 13/10, Stoke 9/4, Draw 9/4.
    • 14.45 Stoke City have scored a higher percentage of set piece goals than any other Premier League team this season (75%). Jon Walters has been involved in a higher percentage of his team’s PL goals (63%) than any other player this season.
    • 14.40 The last meeting between Bolton and Stoke City came at Wembley in the 2011 FA Cup semi-final and the Potters won 5-0. In the history of the Premier League, only one team has conceded more goals from their opening 10 games than Bolton have this season (27), Barnsley in 1997/98 (28).
    • 14.35 Stoke boss Tony Pulis wants his side to build on the Europa League wins over Maccabi Tel Aviv. "I was very proud of the way the lads performed (against Maccabi Tel Aviv) because I never felt that we were in any trouble and it was disappointing in the end that their late goal made the outcome look much closer than it was on the balance of play. They huffed and puffed, but they never really caused us any problems and I told the lads that the game was there for the taking at half time."
    • 14.30 Bolton boss Owen Coyle is in a fighting mood before this one. "Two years ago we were in the bottom three and everyone said we were going to be relegated. We addressed it then, and took the club on, and we'll address it now. It is a challenge for everyone. In the last couple of months it hasn't been nice for anyone. Not me, the players or our fans."
    • 14.25 STOKE NEWS: Neither Ryan Shawcross nor Marc Wilson travelled to Israel for the Europa League clash with Maccabi Tel Aviv after picking up muscle injuries in the defeat by Newcastle on Monday , and are not included. Matthew Etherington (back) doesn't make it, but Jermaine Pennant and Rory Delap start the match.
    • 14.20 BOLTON NEWS: Ricardo Gardner joins the list of absentees for Bolton's clash with Stoke. Gardner is serving a one-match ban after being sent off in last week's 3-1 defeat at Swansea for collecting two yellow cards and is likely to be replaced by Paul Robinson, who was benched for the game at the Liberty Stadium. Boss Owen Coyle, without long-term injured Tyrone Mears, Lee Chung-yong, Stuart Holden, Sean Davis and Sam Ricketts, has no fresh concerns going into the game.
