Muted celebrations for Wheater

David Wheater curbed his status as Bolton's number one practical joker to such an extent he did not even celebrate his first Premier League game for the club on Saturday.

Life at the Reebok Stadium is slowly returning to some kind of normality following Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest although the midfielder remains in intensive care. And for all Wheater's delight at the opening effort of his two-goal contribution to a 2-1 win over Blackburn that took Bolton out of the bottom three, he did not feel it was appropriate to celebrate.

"I started to run off and Darren Pratley told me to calm down," said Wheater. "Scoring is the best feeling in the world but sometimes you have to calm your celebrations when other things are happening."
