Result: Brentford pegged back by Bolton Wanderers

Neil Danns cancels out an early goal from John Swift as Bolton Wanderers fight back to earn a 1-1 draw in their Championship meeting with Brentford.

Bolton Wanderers have claimed a valuable point in their battle against relegation after coming from behind to hold Brentford to a 1-1 draw at the Macron Stadium this evening.

The visitors opened the scoring in the 10th minute when Chelsea loanee John Swift curled a strike from just outside the box past Ben Amos and into the far corner.

Shola Ameobi then saw a powerful strike tipped over by David Button, before Alan McCormack threatened a second goal for Brentford with a close-range attempt that Amos managed to keep out.

The Bees continued to look a threat going forward and Lasse Vibe burst through the home side's defence only to see his effort on goal blocked by the feet of Amos.

Amos was being kept busy in the Bolton goal, and the keeper was called into action once again to push away Swift's volley at the back post.

Brentford took their lead into the break and they almost doubled their advantage early in the second half when Jake Bidwell's header across goal dropped narrowly wide.

However, Bolton made their opponents pay for their missed chances in the 65th minute as Neil Danns picked out the bottom corner with a shot from the edge of the box to level the scores.

Within minutes the hosts had a chance to score another goal after the ball dropped kindly to Ameobi inside the box, but the striker could only fire straight at the keeper.

The Trotters soon came close again through Liam Feeney, whose goalbound effort was headed off the line by James Tarkowski.

In the closing stages Brentford almost stole the points as Vibe saw an effort kept out by Amos, before Konstantin Kerschbaumer's shot was blocked, but Bolton managed to hold on for a share of the spoils.
