  3. 'They looked like they wanted it more'

    FT: Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    Bristol City dejected
    Quote Message: I think you have to give credit to Bolton, they defended really well and looked like they wanted it more than us - that's what was really disappointing for me. It's an opportunity lost, but they deserved the win. The run of results isn't a concern, but the performance is. from Lee Johnson Bristol City head coach on Sky Sports

  4. 'We deserved the three points'

    FT: Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    Quote Message: I'm very pleased. Sammy Ameobi is a very talented player, he's played in the Premier League and he looked very dangerous tonight. He was very unlucky not to get another one. There was great resilience in our defending and we deserved the three points. from Phil Parkinson Bolton Wanderers manager on Sky Sports

  5. Post update

    FT: Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    Right, let's get some reaction from the two managers...

  6. How it stands at the top...

    FT: Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    Top six

    Bristol City, meanwhile, remain in fifth place. But surely they'll consider this one a huge missed opportunity, with three points enough to have sent them level with second-placed Derby County.

  7. How it stands at the bottom...

    FT: Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    Bottom six

    As you can see, that result not only lifts Bolton Wanderers out of the bottom three but all the way up to 19th.

    Two of the sides to come down from the Premier League last season, Sunderland and Hull City, are in the relegation zone.

  8. 'I enjoyed it up there today'

    FT: Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    Ameobi goal
    Quote Message: Gary Madine's a top-quality player, he deserves his move, but you've just got to get on with it. I enjoyed it up there today. Who knows what the future holds, I'm just going to take it each game as it comes. from Sammy Ameobi Bolton goalscorer on Sky Sports

  9. Post update

    FT: Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    And guess what? We're going to hear from the big Bolton front man next...

  10. FULL-TIME

    Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    Bolton Wanderers have done it! Sammy Ameobi's fantastic solo goal wins it.

  11. Post update

    Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    Bolton get it clear, Bristol City concede a free-kick and that is surely that!

  12. Post update

    Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    It's all on this. Everyone forward, everyone back. Josh Brownhill stands over it...

  13. Post update

    Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    Just as Aden Flint does trundle forward, Joe Bryan delivers a horrible looping cross straight down the throat of Ben Alnwick.

    But they have a free-kick right on the edge of the box in a crossing position here...

  14. Post update

    Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    Still City press without success. I wonder if Lee Johnson will send big Aden Flint up top for the last couple of minutes?

    Aden Flint
  15. Post update

    Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    Four minutes to be added on. Four minutes for Bolton to hold on. Four minutes for Bristol City to find a goal.

  16. Post update

    Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    We're marching towards full-time and still Bolton resist. Gustav Engvall concedes a free-kick in frustration, allowing the hosts to wind the clock down a wee bit further.

  17. SUBSTITUTION

    Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    Up the other end, Famara Diedhiou gets a shot in towards goal but can't keep it down.

    That's his last action, too, as Gustav Engvall comes on in his place. The last throw of the dice.

  18. Post update

    Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    Bristol City have scored 13 times in the last 15 minutes of games this season - only Fulham and Brentford in the second tier have more - and how dearly they'd love another one of those tonight.

    But my word, it's Bolton who have the big chance to score the second goal of the game!

    Zach Clough has it, centre of goal and in a whole heap of space, but he curls it over.

  19. Post update

    Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    This is proper last-ditch stuff from Bolton, as the Robins pile forward in search of an equaliser.

    But after getting the ball clear Bailey Wright brings down Josh Vela and there's some respite for the home team.

  20. SUBSTITUTION

    Bolton 1-0 Bristol City

    A second Bolton change, as Filipe Morais replaces former Bristol City right-back Mark Little.
