Martin Petrov and Johan Elmander were on target as Bolton ran out 2-0 winners over St Johnstone in Monday's pre-season friendly at McDiarmid Park.

Petrov, released by Manchester City earlier this summer, opened the scoring when he latched onto a Robbie Blake through-ball, cut inside and lashed a left-footed shot high into the net.

Elmander then found space down the hosts' left, bursting through and firing in a low right-footed shot to give Trotters boss Owen Coyle a triumphant return to the club where he started his managerial career.
