Result: Bolton Wanderers stay in drop zone despite win over Brentford

Bolton Wanderers edge out Brentford 3-1 in the Championship thanks to goals from Mark Davies, Neil Danns and Craig Davies, but remain in the relegation zone.

Bolton Wanderers remain in the Championship's drop zone despite edging out Brentford 3-1 this afternoon.

Jermaine Beckford nearly gave the struggling Trotters the lead inside the first minute, but his effort was beaten away by Brentford goalkeeper David Button.

Darren Pratley was next to try his luck for Neil Lennon's side, but his long-range shot failed to trouble the goal.

Pratley went closer with his next attempt – his acrobatic effort was just off target after Joe Mason's strike had deflected into the path of his teammate on 17 minutes.

Alex Pritchard fired a fierce effort at goal for the visitors on 21 minutes, but the shot was well saved by Andy Lonergan.

Neil Danns spurned a good opening for Bolton after the break when he fired straight at the goalkeeper after a good cross from Beckford.

However, the former Crystal Palace winger made no mistake minutes later when he converted to give the Trotters the lead.

Substitute Mark Davies made it two 15 minutes later by calmly finishing past Button after a mazy run.

Jon-Miquel Toral gave the visitors hope with a goal seven minutes from time, but Craig Davies restored Bolton's two-goal advantage in stoppage time as they earned a first home win under Lennon's management.
