Gary Megson paid the price for fielding an under-strength side as Bolton followed Everton and Spurs out of this season´s UEFA Cup at the last-16 stage.

Portuguese outfit Sporting were an unremarkable team, and it will be a major surprise if they go on to win the competition in May.

But against a Bolton side shorn of several stars - with Premier League survival the focus - Sporting clinched their quarter-final place via Bruno Pereirinha´s 85th-minute strike to give them a 2-1 win aggregate victory.
