Danny Welbeck headed Sunderland into sixth place in the Barclays Premier League as Bolton slipped to a 1-0 defeat at the Stadium of Light - just their second loss in eight games.

The 20-year-old headed home from close range after keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen had saved Darren Bent's 32nd-minute effort, and later hit the post as the home side threaten to win more comfortably.

Bolton produced little in response, although Craig Gordon had to pull off a stunning 45th-minute save to deny Zat Knight from point-blank range.
