Sam Allardyce was celebrating after his competitive debut as Newcastle manager ended with an emphatic 3-1 victory against his former club.

Two goals from Obafemi Martins and one from Charles N´Zogbia before half-time gave Bolton a mountain to climb.

Nicolas Anelka pulled a goal back but they could not make up lost ground making it a disappointing start for manager Sammy Lee.
