There was a nervy moment for Bolton goalkeeper Adam Bogdan in the opening minute when he dropped a cross from Ross Wallace, but he did manage to gather at the second time of asking.

Darren Pratley called for a penalty for Bolton moments later under a challenge from Burnley defender Kevin Long, but the referee was not interested.

Burnley midfielder Kieran Trippier had the first effort on goal after six minutes, but Bogdan was on hand to quell the danger in a lively opening to the Championship campaign.

Medo was next to come close for Bolton with a powerful effort from the edge of the box, but it was always moving high and wide of the target.

David Jones, who joined Burnley on a free transfer in the summer, also tried his luck from outside the box after 26 minutes, but the former Manchester United midfielder's effort flashed past the post.

Burnley were ahead moments later, however, when Danny Ings burst into the box before rolling a low effort into the far corner, albeit via a deflection from David Wheater.

Bolton improved in the latter stages of the half were level after 37 minutes when Pratley thumped a powerful effort past Tom Heaton from close range.
