Soccer-Nani and Owen salvage point for Man United at Bolton


Sun, 26 Sep 13:56:00 2010

A sensational solo goal by Nani and a Michael Owen header earned Manchester United a point as they twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at Bolton Wanderers in a lively lunchtime kickoff in the Premier League on Sunday.

Nani's audacious dribble from the halfway line cancelled out an early goal by Bolton defender Zat Knight and after Martin Petrov had restored Bolton's lead Owen came off the bench to rescue Alex Ferguson's side with 16 minutes remaining at the Reebok Stadium.

It was United's third consecutive away draw of the season and they missed the chance to take full advantage of Chelsea's 1-0 defeat at Manchester City on Saturday.

Champions Chelsea have 15 points from six games with United on 12. Arsenal, beaten at home by West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, are third on 11 with City behind the Gunners on goal difference.
