BOLTON 0-1 BLACKBURN HIGHLIGHTS
BOLTON 0-1 BLACKBURN
90+3: OFFSIDE! Magennis is offside as he nods the ball down for Dyer in the box. Another good decision from the linesman.
89: NO PENALTY! Well... referee Bond awarded a spot-kick to Bolton as Doidge is hauled down in the box, but the linesman overrules him as the Welsh striker was in an offside position when the challenge was made! The referee agrees and reverses his decision.
85: Oztumer's cross is flicked towards goal by Doidge, it looks like it's going wide but Raya acrobatically punches behind anyway.
The following corner is snuffed out as Wheater's header is nowhere near the target with his effort.
86: YELLOW! For Raya as he delays his goal-kick.
83: Wildschut plays a low ball into the box but Williams gets his cross clear. Blackburn have been excellent defensively so far.... can Bolton break them down?
80: YELLOW! For Lowe after he slides into the back of Evans.
77: SUB! Doidge comes on for Grounds.
73: The game has opened up a bit more with both sides leaving gaps in the midfield.
Magennis is not a happy man as he feels he was blocked off by Lenihan as he tries to run in behind the Blackburn defence. Referee Bond waves away his protests.
68: CHANCE! Wildschut breaks free in the box and tries to roll the ball across for Magennis, but his effort is tame and goes straight into the arms of Raya.
66: SUB! Phil Parkinson looks to inject some pace into his side. Craig Noone leaves the pitch for Lloyd Dyer.
66: YELLOW! For Reed due to timewasting.
65: Magennis forces a corner off Lenihan as he finds space on the flank once again. Oztumer's cross is cleared away.
63: Dack tees the ball off for Smallwood who looks to pull the trigger, but he can't sort his feet out at the vital moment and Bolton can clear their lines. It's an eerily nervy atmosphere inside the University of Bolton Stadium right now.
58: SUBS! Rodwell and Rothwell comes off for Evans and Smallwood.
52: Grounds tries to slip Wildschut in down the left channel but Mulgrew comes across to make the tackle. Mulgrew has put in a strong defensive shift for the visitors.
Blackburn lead through Bradley Dack's 22nd-minute goal but Bolton have responded well as Josh Magennis twice came close to grabbing an equaliser. Second half coming up!
45: YELLOW! For Blackburn's Williams after he slides into Noone.
45: ONE minute of added time at the end of this first half.
42: OFF THE LINE! A Bolton free-kick sees Danny Graham hack his wild clearance into the path of Magennis. His looping header gets the better of Raya but Mulgrew is there on the goal-line to make the vital interception!
WATCH: DACK'S OPENER
Bradley Dack has the visitors in front at the moment. Watch his goal below...
39: We haven't seen too much from Jack Rodwell so far this evening. He is making his first league start since scoring in Sunderland’s Sky Bet Championship defeat to Sheffield United in September 2017.
Bradley Dack's away form makes for good reading if you're a Blackburn fan!
35: Rothwell slips the ball through to Reed and his strike deflects behind for a Blackburn corner. The set-piece breaks down after Rothwell elects to play it short. That was a bit of a waste.
33: Magennis is forced to chase the ball out wide and plays a cross into the box, but no-one is there to meet it. The Northern Ireland international has been Bolton's standout performer so far and is lacking a bit of service.
30: Buckley's cross looking for Noone at the near post lands into the grateful arms of Raya. Bolton have responded brightly after going a goal down eight minutes ago.
28: SAVE! Buckley cuts in on his right boot and tries to curl the ball into the bottom corner, but Raya matches it and tips behind for a corner.
26: Bolton surge forward down the right flank as they push hard for an equaliser. Williams tries to overlap but the Everton loanee runs the ball out of play.
BOLTON 0-1 BLACKBURN
24: A good response from Bolton as a dangerous cross is headed behind by Mulgrew. Oztumer's corner is plucked out of the air by Raya.
GOAL! BOLTON 0-1 BLACKBURN (Dack, 22)
BOLTON 0-0 BLACKBURN
20: WIDE! Bolton surge forward again and Noone's deflected shot bounces back to Williams who has a go from outside the box. His effort is slightly mishit and it drags wide of Raya's left post.
17: FOUL! Dack tackles Williams from behind as soon as he was about to pull the trigger from the edge of the box. Grounds and Magennis are standing over the free-kick.
18: Magennis takes... and drills it off the wall for Bolton's first corner of the evening. The corner comes to nothing.
12: A deflected cross from Bennett is punched away by Matthews under pressure from Graham. Blackburn are dominating possession at the moment inside a quiet University of Bolton stadium.
10: Blackburn are starting to pass the ball around with confidence but are struggling to get the ball to Graham who has Wheater on his back at all times.
7: It's a very congested battle in the middle of the park with plenty of tough challenges flying in. This game has begun at a good intensity despite the lack of chances. Wheater appears to stamp on Palmer but referee Bond allows play to continue.
4: Early free-kick for Blackburn as Rothwell is bundled over by Lowe. Rothwel's free-kick is nodded towards goal by Williams, but it's well wide.
1: And we're underway at the University of Bolton Stadium! Today's referee is Darren Bond.
A reminder of how both teams line up this evening.
THREE POINTS ON THE LINE
