A goal from Chris Eagles was enough to secure a dramatic win for Bolton Wanderers over Blackburn Rovers at the Reebok Stadium.

Chris Eagles scored a 90th-minute winner as Bolton Wanderers beat Blackburn Rovers in dramatic fashion at the Reebok Stadium.

David Ngog had a great chance to give the home side the lead inside the opening five minutes but he could poke Darren Pratley's cross wide from six yards out.

Blackburn had been subdued going forward but that changed when Grant Hanley flicked Morten Gamst-Pedersen's free kick onto the post but before they could react, the ball was cleared to safety.

Rovers threatened after half time and again it was through Hanley, this time his header clattered off the bar.

Bolton responded through Prately who made a surging run through the middle of the Rovers defence but could only put his shot wide.

Medo Kamara and Lee Chung-Yong came so close to giving the hosts the lead, as Kean parried Kamara's effort to Lee, who shot at goal but his effort was cleared off the line at the last second.

The Trotters nearly paid for those misses when Pedersen struck a vicious shot which looked to be creeping in but Andy Lonergan got a hand to it and tipped it over.

Bolton finally broke the deadlock in stoppage time as substitute Eagles's low shot trickled into the bottom corner with the aid of the post, which was enough to win them the game.
