    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • 90' Full-time: Swansea 3-1 Bolton. An important win for Swansea who heap more misery on an out-of-sorts Bolton Wanderers.
    • Swansea sub: Nathan Dyer comes off for Luke Moore.
    • 90+3' GOAL FOR SWANSEA! SWANSEA 3-1 BOLTON (Danny Graham) The ball is clipped through to Danny Graham and he is clean through with Wheater caught high up the field. The striker proceeds to beat Jaaskelainen with a tidy finish and give Swansea the three points.
    • 90+1' Into three minutes of stoppage time, and Robinson manages to acrobatically head clear off the goalline as Graham had beaten Jaaskelainen with a right-footed strike from the left.
    • 90' Bolton's Robinson pumps the ball forward, but Wheather is all over Graham in attempting to win the header and Swansea get a free-kick. Moments later, Mark Gower is cautioned.
    • 89' Graham is flagged offside in attempting to receive a through-ball from midfield.
    • 88' Swansea win a corner as a Sinclair strike is deflected wide of goal, but they go backwards from that opportunity to send the ball into the Bolton penalty area.
    • 86' Nathan Dyer is invited to come inside and duly sends a curling effort at the Bolton goal, but it is too close to Jaaskelainen and the 'keeper gathers the ball into his chest.
    • 84' Sinclair could have sealed it for Swansea but he smashes Dyer's cut-back from the byline against the Bolton crossbar.
    • 83' Angel Rangel is the latest player to enter into Clattenburg's book. Paul Robinson takes the resulting free-kick, but Cahill's header fails to find Klasnic and Vorm comes out to gather the loose ball.
    • 82' Gower attempts to feed Rangel but Bolton are quick to intercept and can break... but the Trotters fail to keep the ball under control as the game gets increasingly stretched.
    • 79' Steinsson is booked for a late challenge.
    • 78' Rangel wins the corner after his low strike is deflected wide, but the Swans are unable to test Bolton from that delivery.
    • 77' Bolton double substitution: Ivan Klasnic and Gael Kakuta come on for David Ngog and Darren Prately respectively as Bolton search for that equaliser.
    • 75' GOAL FOR BOLTON! SWANSEA 2-1 BOLTON (Danny Graham og). Bolton are back in it out of nothing, as Graham is deep in his own half defending and slices a delivery from the Bolton left off of his boot, past Vorm and into the roof of his own net. Will lightning strike twice after Swansea gave up a two-goal lead away to Wolves last weekend?
    • 73' Paul Robinson has gone down with cramp but he appears to be ok to continue.
    • 72' Nathan Dyer cuts the ball back for Joe Allen having made his way into the Bolton penalty box off the right flank. But Allen drags his effort wide with two Bolton players closing down his route to goal. Should have done a lot better there though.
    • 70' Mark Davies is booked after taking a swipe at Joe Allen out of frustration.
    • 68' Gower and Angel link-up in a one-two down the right, but the return pass for Gower is over-hit and goes out for a Bolton goal-kick.
    • 67' Swansea just maintaining possession and looking to drag the ten men of Bolton out of position before landing another killer blow.
    • 64' A Bolton free-kick is punted forward but Cahill fails to adequately make contact and so Vorm can come out to collect.
    • 63' Bolton just need to keep the ball because, at the moment, the crowd are lively and Swansea are well on top.
    • 61' Almost a third goal for Swansea as Mark Gower's inviting cross from the right is headed onto the Bolton crossbar by Danny Graham
    • 59' Sinclair drags his shot wide having ventured into the Bolton box and, in the buld-up to that move, sub Paul Robinson is booked for a late tackle.
    • 57' GOAL FOR SWANSEA! SWANSEA 2-0 BOLTON (Scott Sinclair pen). It goes from bad to worse for Owen Coyle and his Bolton side, as former Swans player Darren Pratley concedes a penalty for a sloppy challenge and Sinclair steps up to cooly send Jaaskelainen the wrong way from the spot.
    • 55' Jaaskelainen is called on to smartly save at his near post from Sinclair, as the Swans striker had cut in off the left flank and drilled towards goal.
    • 55' Swansea have their tails up at the moment, and Nathan Dyer is causing all sorts of problems down their right flank.
    • 53' Bolton sub: Martin Petrov comes off for Paul Robinson as Owen Coyle looks to shore up his defence after going a goal behind with ten-men.
    • 52' Dyer cuts in off the right and forces Jaaskelainen into a fine save with his legs after delivering a drilled, low shot. Bolton all at sea at the moment.
    • 51' Swansea' Leon Britton is carded for a high challenge.
    • 50' GOAL FOR SWANSEA! SWANSEA 1-0 BOLTON (Joe Allen). Just moments after Gardner is sent off, Joe Allen gives the home side the lead. Collecting a square pass from the free-kick, Allen travels forward before side-footing the ball low inside Jaaskelainen's near post.
    • 49' Ricardo Gardner (sent off). It's a second bookable offence for the Jamaican as he tugs back Nathan Dyer and Bolton are down to ten men.
    • 47' Much better from Swansea at the start of this second-half as Scott Sinclair plays a beautiful through-ball to Danny Graham, but the Swans striker's curling effort travels wide of Jaaskelainen's goal.
    • 46' And Swansea get us back underway for a second-half about to be played out in torrential rain.
    • 45' Half-time: Swansea City 0-0 Bolton Wanderers
    • 45' We've entered into the one minute of stoppage time at the end of this half, as Neil Taylor is flagged offside.
    • 45' Booking for Ricardo Gardner after tripping Nathan Dyer.
    • 44' Bolton providing the majority of the attacking as we approach half-time - a long Steinsson throw from the right is headed well over by David Ngog.
    • 43' Darren Pratley, on his return to his former club, enters into the ref's book for a late challenge on Nathan Dyer.
    • 41' Sinclair goes on a mazy run but his ball through to Graham deflects off Ngog and back to Bolton 'keeper Jaaskelainen.
    • 40' Free-kick chance for Bolton and Martin Petrov curls his 25-yard effort wide of Michel Vorm's near post - the 'keeper always had it covered.
    • 39' Rangel attempts to play the ball through to Scott Sinclair, but it is misplaced from a good position, and goes out for a Bolton goal-kick.
    • 37' A 30-yard effort from Scott Sinclair is charged down early by David Wheater. Up the other end, and Reo-Coker sends a delightful cross from the right low and into the heart of the Swansea box, but Ngog fails to convert and, following that, Darren Pratley blazes over.
    • 35' Now it's Swansea's turn to defend from a corner after a wild Angel Rangel clearance. They deal with the initial delivery, but fortunately for the Swans, David Ngog is flagged offside when attempting to get on the end of Martin Petrov's follow-up cross.
    • 34' Gower delivers a more inviting cross from the left into the Bolton goalmouth, but Jaaskelainen manages to punch clear to safety.
    • 33' Sinclair wins a corner off of Steinsson after bursting into the Bolton box. But again Mark Gower's corner is overhit - however, the main talking point is whether David Wheater brought down Garry Monk in the penalty area. Mark Clattenburg says no penalty
    • 31' Danny Graham is flagged offside when attempting to run onto a Swansea long-ball. Close call
    • 30' Mark Gower manages to find space for himself, turning away from goal, and drilling a low effort in off the right flank and from outside the penalty area. But Jaaskelainen was always well positioned to save.
    • 29' Sloppy fouls being given away by both teams at the moment, with Bolton duo Mark Davies and Nigel Reo-Coker standing out as particular culprits.
    • 27' Ngog does well to win the ball in a promising position; his pass into Pratley sees the Bolton midfielder send a low 20-yard effort towards goal which Vorm dives on to smother.
    • 26' Reo-Coker petuantly kicks the ball away after the referee blows, but no booking is awarded, just a stern talking to from Mark Clattenburg.
    • 24' Swansea break forward quickly and Gower and Sinclair interchange passes before feeding Neil Taylor down the left, whose curling delivery is deflected over Jaaskelainen's goal.
    • 22' Eagles crosses low from the right, but the delivery is too close to Michel Vorm and the 'keeper collects into his chest.
    • 21' Fantastic save from Michel Vorm who tips a smart turn-and-shot from David Ngog over the Swansea bar. The ball had fallen to Ngog in a central position after Chris Eagles' initial effort was blocked.
    • 19' Bolton keeping the ball a lot better until a hopeful long-ball forward is comfortably headed clear by Swansea's Ashley Williams.
    • 16' The ball pinballs around the Swansea box, and it is Gary Cahill who eventually heads towards goal but it lacks power and direction and so Michel Vorm can claim with ease.
    • 15' Joe Allen slots the ball into Mark Gower, who has time to turn from a central position just out from the Bolton penalty area, but proceeds to slice his shot wide of Jaaskelainen's goal.
    • 14' Dyer lays the ball off on the right flank for the advancing Angel Rangel who can't quite gather the ball in his stride but wins the corner. However, Mark Gower's delivery fails to beat the first man.
    • 11' Danny Graham wins the first corner of the match for Swansea but, from that delivery, Danny Graham is penalised for apparent holding when challenging for the ball.
    • 9' A lively opening ten minutes as Nathan Dyer cuts in off the right flank with the ball, but his shot is charged down on the edge of the Bolton penalty box.
    • 8' Pratley lays the ball off for Ngog, but the Frenchman slips as he sizes up the shot.
    • 8' Swansea's Nathan Dyer darts down the right flank but his cross into the box is too far in front of Scott Sinclair, who had peeled off his marker but couldn't reach to make contact with the ball.
    • 7' Gretar Steinsson's ballooned cross into the box from the right is comfortably gathered by the in-form Michel Vorm. Moments later, David Ngog feeds Ricardo Gardner out to the left but the Jamaican drags his shot wide.
    • 5' Now it's Danny Graham's turn for the ball to fail to fall kindly for him and Jasskelainen comes off his line to collect.
    • 4' Joe Allen gets his foot caught on top of the ball in a promising position, as Bolton's Darren Pratley steps up to clear.
    • 3' Swansea have dictated possession since Bolton kicked off, but have failed to make early in-roads into their opponents' half of the field.
    • 1' And Bolton get the first-half underway...
    • 14:56 It's a cloudy, drizzly afternoon at the Liberty Stadium but a sell-out crowd should help to lift the spirits.
    • 14:53 Today marks the first top-flight fixture between Swansea and Bolton, and their first meeting in any competition since April 1993, but the meaning couldn't be more important - with both sides looking for their third league win of the season and one that will help propel themselves up the Premier League table.
    • 14:50 A bad omen for Owen Coyle's men is that the Trotters have lost their last five Premier League away matches with Mark Clattenburg in charge as referee. They'll be hoping to put a stop to that trend today!
    • 14:45 Bolton are without on-loan defender Dedryck Boyata, who has returned to parent club Manchester City for treatment on the ankle ligament damage he suffered against Sunderland last weekend. Paul Robinson starts on the bench, but if brought on, will achieve his 200th Premier League appearance.
    • 14:40 Swansea are unchanged and have no new injury problems, with Kemy Agustien and Steven Caulker nearing returns to full fitness. Danny Graham and Scott Sinclair lead the Swans' attack and will be looking to continue their fine recent form in front of goal today - the former has scored in each of the club's last three Premier League matches, while the latter has scored in Swansea's last two league home games.
    • 14:35 Team News... Swansea: Vorm, Rangel, Monk, Williams, Taylor, Dyer, Gower, Britton, Allen, Sinclair, Graham. Subs: Tremmel, Orlandi, Routledge, Lita, Moore, Richards, Moras /// Bolton: Jaaskelainen, Steinsson, Cahill, Wheater, Gardner, Eagles, Reo-Coker, Pratley, Mark Davies, Petrov, Ngog. Subs: Bogdan, Robinson, Muamba, Knight, Kevin Davies, Klasnic, Kakuta /// Referee: Mark Clattenburg (Tyne & Wear)
    • 14:30 Bolton Wanderers go into the game desperate for a win to lift themselves clear of the bottom three and having won only two out of nine games this season (both wins coming away from the Reebok Stadium). However, they are up against a Swansea City side who have been vastly impressive at home - Brendan Rodgers' men are unbeaten and have yet to concede a goal at the Liberty Stadium.
