Taylor's in-swinging corner is nodded home by Kevin Davies at the near post. It looks like Bentley should really have done better at the near post. Surely Bolton to win this one now! Thrilling game.
Steinsson is slow to recover to his feet following a robust challenge from Bentley. He should be fine to continue.
Megson is making his second change of the game with Andy O'Brien replacing their first goal-scorer Puygrenier.
Good chance for Bolton. Kevin Davies flicks on for his namesake Mark, but he lacks composured in the penalty area and fires well off target. Half a chance there to break Spurs' hearts.
Is anyone will to predict which way this one is going to go? For the second time in a week Bolton have squandered a two-goal advantage.
Chimbonda has made a bid difference for Spurs. Jaaskelainen spills a long-range shot and Bent is on hand to slide the ball home through the keeper's legs. Remarkable scenes here.
Lennon finds Chimbonda and his cross is turned home by Bent in the middle. Bent has given Redknapp's side a lifeline.
Kevin Davies drive at the near post is saved by Cudicini. It seems yet abother inconsistent performance by Spurs. Chimbonda is ready to come on for the visitors.
Within second of Taylor's poor free-kick striking the wall the home side are 2-0 up. Kevin Davies superbly curls the ball home into the far corner of the net after a great flick-on by Cahill. Spurs have a mountain to climb now!
Bolton have a free-kick right on the edge of Spurs' penalty area. A second goal could kill this one off!
Megson has made his first change of the made with Smolarek replacing the poor Makukula up front for the home side.
Bolton are defending with 10 men behind the ball at the moment. They seem happy hitting the visitors on the counter attack. The onus is on Spurs to try and break down Megson's side.
Makukula turns smartly in the box, but lashes a right-footed effort high and wide. Lack of composure there for the loan capture. He's yet to impress in the Premier League so far, but it's early days for the striker.
Palacios' through ball for Bent is woeful over-hit. A simple pass on one, but he blasted it straight thought for a goal kick. If Spurs can just get their act together they could easily get back on level terms. Bolton seem content with their one-goal advantage at the moment.
Muamba has half a sight of goal after Dowd gives the home side a good advantage, but his effort is tame. You could see what he was trying, but his right-footed curler lacked any sort of purchase.
Lennon's cross finds Pavlyuchenko at the back post, but it remains unclear what the Russian was trying to do as he sends a right-footed shot high and wide from a tight angle.
Spurs are making a double switch at half-time with Darren Bent and Jermaine Jenas replacing Luka Modric and Didier Zokora. Spurs had to do something, they looked short front in the opening 45 minutes.
The half-time whistle goes and Bolton hold a one-goal advantage courtesy of Puygrenier's first goal for the club.
Bentley's driven low free-kick is poor and easily cleared by the home side. Spurs will be disappointed by their first half performance.
Pavlyuchenko gets in behind Bolton's defence. He takes a touch and tries a long-range effort which is blocked by Jaaskelainen.
Lennon plays a dangerous ball into Bolton's box, but no one is on hand for the visitors to smash the ball home. Bolton's defence are allowed to clear.
Spurs are just happy retaining possession at the moment. Although they aren't really causing Bolton any problems.
Lennon cuts in on his right foot, but his side is dragged just wide of the near post. It is a corner for Spurs.
Puygrenier is well placed in the middle to flick home Mark Davies' free-kick past the helpless Cudicini in the middle. Bolton are up and running. The ball into the box made it very hard for Spurs to defend.
Taylor's long-range drive is saved by Cudicini. The effort was well struck, but the former Chelsea keeper watched it all the way and make not mistake with the save.
Free-kick to Bolton after Kevin Davies is barged over by Dawson. Silly challenge by the Spurs defender.
Bentley's left-footed drive is palmed away by Jaaskelainen. The chance came out of nothing, but the Bolton keeper was well-placed to make a find save.
A great break by Bolton. Steinsson's right-wing cross is headed over in the middle by Kevin Davies. I've seen the experienced striker stick those away before. It all came about from Bentley's poor corner.
Bentley's follow-up corner is disappointing and woefully over-hit. He's capable of a much better delivery.
Modric is down at the moment after being clattered into by Pavlyuchenko. He should be okay to continue.
Real chance for Bolton. The ball sat up nicely for Makukula, but he fluffed his chance to test Cudicini. He should have hit the target but his effort was sliced well wide.
Spurs fan Neil Wright is keeping tabs of today's match from Australia. He thinks the game with end 1-1.

Pavlyuchenko has taken a bang on his head from Cahill's challenge, but he should be okay to continue.
Taylor delivers a decent-looking cross from the left, but Davies heads over in the middle. First attempt on goal of the game, but it's over the crossbar from Bolton's point of view.
Davies plays the ball forward in search of Makukula, but the on loan striker was offside anyway. Spurs are having the better of the play early on.
Bentley's long-range drive is bundled wide by Jaaskelainen. The ball bounced just before the Finnish keeper and looked like it could for a moment find the back of the net.
Harry Redknapp has confirmed before the kick-off that Defoe is having scans on his foot injury today. The club do not yet know how long their recently-acquired ace might be out of action.
If you have any predictions for today's encounter, feel free to drop me a mail on firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll happily publish the best of the submissions.
Both teams are just two points above the drop zone so a win for either side here could prove crucial in the battle against the drop.
Bolton boss Gary Megson began life without departed captain Kevin Nolan by making two changes to the side which drew at Blackburn in midweek. Ricardo Gardner and Mark Davies replaced Nolan and Chris Basham respectively.
Elsewhere, 10-man Stoke City have surprised Manchester City by running out 1-0 winners courtesy of James Beattie's header. Remarkable result.
