Bolton rode their luck in their UEFA Cup first-round, first-leg clash with Macedonian side Rabotnicki and secured a 1-1 draw thanks to Abdoulaye Meite´s first goal of the season.

It came seven minutes from time and may just act as a catalyst to kick-start their troubled season.

Bolton were heading for their sixth defeat in seven games when Meite toe-poked the ball home after goalkeeper Filip Madzovski fumbled a free-kick from Nicolas Anelka, after Nemanja Milisavlevic had sent the hosts into raptures in the 53rd minute.
