Kevin Davies and Johan Elmander each helped themselves to two goals as brilliant Bolton brushed aside 10-man Newcastle 5-1 and ensured Kevin Nolan's big Reebok Stadium return turned sour.
Davies hit a pair from the penalty spot while Elmander fired two in the second half and Lee Chung-yong also got on the scoresheet as Owen Coyle's men hit the dizzy heights of fourth in the table.
Newcastle, for whom Nolan had missed a first minute chance, grabbed their only goal from Andy Carroll on 51 but played the final 15 minutes with 10 men after the dismissal of Fabricio Coloccini.
