    • 60' Robinson is getting heckled by the travelling Wolves fans who are sitting behind him at left-back.

    • 58' Lee whips it in...Elmander!!!!
    • 56' What's going to happen...the match has stopped...lucky here...yellow's for both players.
    • 55' Here we go a bit of argo has cropped up. Robinson clashes with Stearman in a 50-50 challenge. Robinson grabs Stearman's neck as he's on the ground, he wasn't happy with the challenge.
    • 54' Berra gives away a corner, he was in the box but wasn't under any pressure. Taylor takes the corner..Kevin Davies heads it toward goal...Lee out muscles Elokobi and it's cleared off the line....

    • 46' Hammill makes a great run across the box and looks dangerous, Cahill drops behind Knight to make a crucial block.
    • 46' Welcome back we're under way, no changes to report. When will Jamie O'Hara and Sturridge make their appearances?
    • 20:58 Wolverhampton half-time stat: If Wolves lose tonight it will be the third time this season they have lost three in-a-row. Striker Kevin Doyle has scored just once from open play this season - he's played 1595 minutes of football this season including tonights first-half.
    • 20:55 Bolton half-time stat: No clean sheet in their last five Premier League matches. No win in their last five matches. If the Trotters fail to win tonight it will be their longest winless run under manager Owen Coyle.
    • 20:50 We'll be back with the second-half action shortly, you're tuned into Eurosport's live coverage of the English Premier League.
    • 45+ The whistle goes for half-time...it's 0-0 at the Reebok. Wolves should have the lead. Matt Jarvis rolled the ball wide of the post in the 10th minute in a great chance. Bolton's Matt Taylor came the closest for the home side eight minutes later but Hennessey made a delightful save down low.
    • 45+1' We've got one minute of added time, offside Doyle.
    • 44' Henry is sloppy but Zubar steps in to clear. Doyle finds it on the left and crosses it in...Edwards is running in but it's a difficult chance and his effort sprays high over the bar.
    • 43' Ricketts put some venom into that one with his left boot. A warning sign for Wolves.
    • 42' There's only been two clear-cut chances this half...but hold on...Ricketts let's one rip from outside the box...it's stayed low and Hennesey looks as it fizzies inches past his left post.
    • 41' Free kick for Bolton on the left...Holden whips it in, Cahill is almost on-side as Wolverhampton push out looking for the flag...he's just a tad too slow as it flies out for a corner.
    • 40' Will Owen Coyle look to Sturridge at half-time? He'd be wanting to use him as much as he could this season.
    • 39' Hammill is hustling Ricketts well here, but the ball comes of the Wolves winger and it's a goal kick for Bolton.
    • 38' Elmader tries to latch on to another long ball but Hennessey dives on top of it.
    • 37' Elamder and Kevin Davies exchange passes but they're way too deep and Davies just thumps it long hopefully.
    • 35' Cahill gives away another foul and the ref comes over to have a little word. Doyle is causing him trouble.
    • 34' Lee has been busy on the right, Matt Taylor has just been flagged for offside as he looks to run onto a long ball.
    • 33' Doyle is seeing a lot of the ball tonight and is urging his team to hold onto possesion. They've given the ball away though and Bolton move forward but the thrust forward lacks conviction.
    • 32' Cahill fouls Doyle just inside half-way a silly foul from the big defender.
    • 31' Edwards puts Paul Robinson under pressure and Wolves have a throw in. Knocking it back the ball moves forward and Doyle has it on the right. Drops the shoulder but his cross doesn't find anyone.
    • 30' Litter on the pitch is apparently causing problems for players...maybe that's why Elokobi slipped before. It's a little gusty around the ground.
    • 29' Berra and Knight clash in the box, Wolves get the free-kick.
    • 28' Mark Davies and Kevin Davies combine, Kevin Davies puts in a cross and Berra does well to get it away for a corner.
    • 27' Elokobi slips on the left wing and Elmander takes advantage...he puts it in but Kevin Davies is flagged for offside.
    • 26' Doyle is working hard up front for Wolves but really needs some support. With Gary Cahill and Knight on the case.
    • 25' Corner Bolton, Wolves struggle to clear, but eventually get it away.
    • 23' Doyle plays Elokobi, some triangle passing on the left. Ball finds it's way to Henry who feeds the ball in..Hammill goes down in the box after a clash with Zac Knight...no penalty.
    • 21' Jarvis drops the shoulder and wins a corner for Wolves, Bolton clear easily.
    • 19' Elokobi has been booked for his challenge on Lee, it was dangerous and we've seen Red cards issued for less. Lucky there for Wolves.
    • 18' Lee wins it in the midfield from Elokobi and puts it in to Taylor who has a great chance as he brings it down..shoots...great save by Hennessey with his feet. A real chance there for Bolton.
    • 17' Free-kick for Wolves on the right Hammill puts it in but Kevin Davies clears it back. Good to see him back defending his lines.
    • 16' A nice bit of play here by Wolves as they move the ball across the midfield...Henry is creeping into the match - slowly.
    • 15' Robinson hoofs it forward and Kevin Davies goes to ground no foul.
    • 14' Davies puts it in from the left, Hennessey comes out to claim with purpose. A good sign for Mick McCarthy.
    • 13' Two real good chances. Jarvis had a fantatsic opportunity there and should have done better. Ricketts was left napping.
    • 12' Goal kick goes long, Kevin Davies brings it down for Elmander who shoots first time from in the box...ohh nice save from Hennessey.
    • 11' A great opportunity here for Matt Jarvis, he's sprung the offisde trap. One-on-one with the keeper...oh no..he's put it wide. Should have been 1-0 to Wolves.
    • 9' Another under hit back pass from Wolves, Zubar at right-back owes Berra a massive favour for coming across and clearing.
    • 8' Carl Henry tries the long ball but it's over hit and Bolton have a thrown deep in their own half.
    • 6' Holden crosses from the left to Elmandern in the box, he rises but misses the ball, Lee is charging in but can't get there in time.
    • 5' There's no real urgency from either side tonight. Possesion is at a premium with niether team wanting it enough.
    • 4' Zubar has tried a back pass but has sliced it out for a throw-in for Bolton. Bizzare.
    • 3' Foul against Elokobi on the right flank, Bolton thump it forward but the Wolves defence clears well.
    • 2' Jaaskelainen takes it from half-way as players fill the box. Nothing major as Hennessey claims.
    • 1' We're off, Hennessey thumps it forward and balls ends up with Jaaskelainen. Early free-kick for Bolton in the middle of the park a slow start to the match.
    • 20:00 Kevin Doyle is the lone striker tonight can he produce for Wolves. They've only notched four points away from Molineux this season.
    • 19:56 We're almost about to get underway, it's a perfect night for football. Bolton haven't won since Boxing Day and hopefully the 4-0 Chelsea nightmare won't linger.
    • 19:55 It's a big night for Kevin Davies who makes his 400th Premier League appearance tonight. Trotters boss Owen Coyle will be looking for something special from the Bolton hit-man.
    • 19:50 It's a case of who scores wins tonight with Bolton and Wolves both in desperate need of goals. Neither side has netted in their last two league outings.
    • 19:45 Teams have been named for both sides, Bolton have kept on-loan Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge on the bench. Wolves too have resisted temptation to start their new loan signing Jamie O'Hara.
