Bolton denied by late McCarthy strike

Benni McCarthy spared Sam Allardyce his first defeat as Blackburn boss as former club Bolton threw away a two-goal half-time cushion to draw 2-2 at Ewood Park.

Rovers were totally inept for the opening 65 minutes, with Matt Taylor and Kevin Davies on the scoresheet before the half-time interval.

But after Stephen Warnock gave Blackburn a lifeline, McCarthy made amends for missing a penalty by poaching an 87th-minute equaliser to leave 'Big Sam' unbeaten after seven matches in charge.
