Half-Time Report: Bolton Wanderers peg Chelsea back at break

Chelsea have dominated the first half of their League Cup third-round encounter with Bolton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge, but are level at 1-1 with their Championship opponents.

Chelsea have been stunned by Bolton Wanderers as they are being held 1-1 at half time in their League Cup third-round tie at Stamford Bridge this evening.

Andre Schurrle almost gave Jose Mourinho's side an early lead as his inswinging cross evaded everyone in the box, but Andy Lonergan reacted well to claw away the German's free kick.

The striker saw a header cleared off the line moments later before striking the bar with a rasping free kick in the 20th minute as the World Cup winner did everything but score in the opening exchanges.

The home side did eventually move a goal ahead after 25 minutes when Kurt Zouma reacted quickly to pounce on a loose ball at a corner to lash the ball home for his first Chelsea goal.

Mohamed Salah then bent a shot just wide of the post, but against the run of play Bolton equalised.

Liam Feeney swung a free kick into the box, where centre-back Matt Mills thundered a header beyond Petr Cech and into the corner of the net with the visitors' first shot of the evening.

Nathan Ake came close to restoring Chelsea's lead with a swerving 30-yard strike, but Lonergan was on hand again to push the effort behind for a corner to keep Bolton level.
