||Gudjohnsen: scored on Reebok return
Lampard went down in the box under a challenge from Per
Frandsen a minute later, but his appeal for a penalty was a half-hearted
Bolton almost made the breakthrough on 40 minutes when Frandsen's free-kick
at the side of the box was met by Bruno N'Gotty at the near post, but the
ball spun wide off Mario Stanic.
Frandsen had another golden chance seven minutes after the break when he get
in behind the Blues defence but sliced his shot wide, under pressure from
Bolton were made to pay within a minute when Gudjohnsen linked up with
Stanic and shot the ball across Jaaskelainen into the net with some ease.
Wanderers were stung into action and Fredi Bobic was denied a quick
equaliser when Terry headed his volley off the line. The ball was never
cleared though, and when it broke to Michael Ricketts he kept his composure
and walked the ball round Marcel Desailly and Cudicini to level the score.
Bolton had their tails up now, but were stunned nine minutes later when
Graeme Le Saux played an angled ball to substitute Mikael Forssell, and his
drive from the edge of the box bobbled past Finish compatriot Jaaskelainen
and nestled in the corner of the net.
Then came Nolan's vital equaliser when Terry's header broke off Lampard, and
the Wanderers ace thumped a half-volley from 16-yards that took a slight
deflection off Desailly and spun past Cudicini.
Terry almost stole it for the visitors in the dying seconds when the ball
broke to him four yards out and although he beat Jaaskelainen, Charlton
managed to clear off his line. There did seem to be some justice in that.
Man-Of-The-Match: Simon Charlton (Bolton Wanderers)
Although this was never a match for the purists, there were some good
individual performances, and none better over the 90 minutes than that of
Simon Charlton. He was involved in setting up the first Wanderers goal, and
his last minute clearance earned his team a deserved point.
