Bolton edge five-goal thriller

Published Add your comment

Bolton survived a late comeback by Wolves to take all three points from a thrilling contest which finished 3-2 at Molineux.

The hosts dominated the opening period but shot themselves in the foot - as they had in their previous game against Arsenal - by conceding a goal in the first minute, Richard Stearman heading past his own goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann.

Second-half strikes from Johan Elmander and Stuart Holden gave Bolton a 3-0 lead and, although Kevin Foley and Steven Fletcher swiftly reduced the deficit, Mick McCarthy's side were unable to find the equaliser.
