Live Commentary

  1. Thanks for following the action with me at the Reebok - see you again soon

  2. FULL TIME!!! Both teams will be disappointed with the draw. Bolton now head to Aston Villa which will be a huge game for them in the survival race as Swansea next face Wolves

  3. 93

    Mark Davies goes off and looks to be carrying an injury

  4. 92

    It looks to be all square today. Davies brought it forward and played it to Ngog in the box but the ball bobbled away - chance gone

  5. 90

    We're into added time - it's all Swansea in the closing stages

  6. 87

    Ngog pulled it back to Mark Davies in the box but it was slightly behind him. Bolton win a corner that's cleared away by Williams.

  7. 86

    Sinclair wins a free-kick deep in his own half.

  8. 85

    Sigurdsson looked to play Lita in but is ajudged to be offside. He could have timed that better there was no need to go so early

  9. 83

    BOLTON CHANCE!!! Eagles misses by a whisker pulling a shot just wide

  10. 82

    Bolton look to want to press for a grandstand finish - they're throwing men forward and win a corner. Swansea stand their ground and clear

  11. 80

    Klasnic to Eagles who centres for Ngog. Chance for Bolton - could Klasnic inject some life into the Bolton attack?!

  12. 79

    SWANSEA SUB - Graham off for Lita

  13. 79

    BOLTON SUB - Davies off for Klasnic

  14. 78

    Bolton win a corner off Taylor. Swansea clear.

  15. 75

    Still 1-1 but Bolton need to get a hold on this game - it's only a matter of time before the Swans go ahead at this rate

  16. 75

    WOODWORK RATTLED!!! Graham has a shot from outside the box whichclips the bar and comes away - that would have been worthy of winning any game but the bar rescues Bolton

  17. 74

    It's pinball in the 6-yard box as Sigurdsson and Sinclair both have a stab at the ball after Bogdan spills it- Bolton are on the ropes

  18. 72

    Better build up from Bolton Ngog to Davies in the box but Davies on his heels fails to control it

  19. 70

    Eagles to Davies for Bolton then to Petrov but he fails to get it under control. Nothing more dangerous than a goal kick comes from the first Bolton attack of the half

  20. 68

    SWANSEA CHANCE!! Danny Graham rolled his marker into the box and played it across the 6-yard box. No-one could get on the end of the cross-come-shot and Bolton get it clear - Swansea looking more and more likey to net the second

  21. 65

    BOLTON SUB - Miyaichi off for David Ngog

  22. 64

    Swansea playing with more confidence in this second half. Bolton can't offer much in responce as yet. Swansea corner. Bolton clear it away

  23. 63

    Steinsson booked

  24. 62

    SWANSEA CHANCE!! Danny Graham opened his body up on the corner of the Bolton box but it floats wide

  25. 61

    Reo-Coker looks to counter. The dangerous Miyaichi dances into the Swansea box but is closed out again

  26. 59

    Wheater blocks out Sigurdsson on the byline it went off the on-loan man last - goal kick for Bolton

  27. 57

    Swansea look more comfortable in the final third and are asking more of the questions in the second half

  28. 56

    SWANSEA CHANCE!! Britton and Moore combine on the wing - Sigurdsson and Graham combine and Bogdan can save a weak shot from Graham

  29. 54

    Bolton are playing it around as Miyaichi tries to push it past Caulker but the Swansea man comes out ontop

  30. 51

    Bogdan looks all at sea and the ball is somehow cleared away. Bolton look to counter. The two teams have swapped and it's Wanderers looking to come away on the break

  31. 50

    Allen gets a push in the back deep in the Swansea half as the Swans are enjoying much of the early play. Rangel loops it in and Bolton can claw it away for a corner off Mark Davies

  32. 48

    Allen carries it forward and looked to bring a foul from Mark Davies but the ref says no. Swansea win an early corner. Davies concedes possession on the edge of the box but Bolton clear.

  33. 46

    Both teams will be thinking they can take all three points in this game as Britton and Moore combine well on half-way for Swansea

  34. 45

    Both teams are out and Swansea get the second half underway

  35. HALF-TIME! The ref blows. Swansea were ahead through a curling rocket from Scott Sinclair but could only hold out for eight minutes before Eagles swept it in for Wanderers. It's all square on half-way 1-1

  36. 45

    Wheater tries a spectacular effort rather out of character but fluffs it and Swansea clear.

  37. 44

    Miyaichi and Davies combine well on the edge of the box and Davies is closed out for a Bolton corner

  38. 43

    SWANSEA CHANCE! The ball comes in from the corner - Bogdan is caught flapping in no-man's land and Williams glances the ball wide. If that had been on target it would have been a certain goal - the keeper was nowhere

  39. 41

    Mark Davies gets a yellow for a shirt-pull on half-way. Seemed something of nothing but he did get away with a foul earlier on

  40. 40

    Wheater gives a free-kick away on half-way as we enter the final five minutes in the game

  41. 39

    Caulker is back on - looking a bit groggy but OK to continue

  42. 38

    Caulker is down and needing treatment. Vorm came for a cross and took man and ball including thumping his owm man on the side of the head.

  43. 36

    That fell to the wrong man you feel - a real chance for Swansea to re-take the lead

  44. 36

    Sigurdsson takes it. Bogdan spills it as it bounced just infront of him and Caulker skies the spinning ball high over the bar

  45. 35

    Bolton look the more positive side and Swansea have not been able to play their normal keep-ball football. Swansea free-kick though as Sigurdsson was pulled back on the break.

  46. 33

    Miyaichi plays a give and go on the by-line and loops it into Davies who headed effort falls to the Swansea keeper

  47. 31

    There is a bit of pinball in the box. It's a bit scrappy but get another shot in on goal. Swansea look rattled but get it away

  48. 31

    BOLTON CHANCE!! Petrov bent the spot-kick in low and Vorm had to get down low to put it behind for a corner

  49. 30

    Davies wins a free-kick this time up-ended by Williams who gets a yellow. Davies turned him on the edge of the box and would have been in on goal. Williams will take the booking

  50. 28

    SWANSEA SUB - Luke Moore comes on for Nathan Dyer

  51. 26

    Sigurdsson has another pop from outside the box which is blocked again by Steinsson.

  52. 25

    The ball was pulled back to Eagles in an identical move to the goal but this time the Swansea defence can clear.

  53. 25

    Nathan Dyer has picked up a knock and may have to come off. Bogdan has to play sweeper with a ball over the top. Swansea are pressing on the wing

  54. 23

    Davies thought he'd won free-kick on the edge of the box but the ref gives it the other-way. Davies was puling on the shirt of the Swansea defender trying to trick a free-kick in a dangerous area

  55. 21

    The game is end-to-end in the early stages.

  56. 20

    Bolton defend it well and clear.

  57. 19

    SWANSEA CHANCE!! the ball falls to Sigurdsson who unleashes an effort goal-bound. Steinsson threw his body in the way and it loops up for a corner-kick.

  58. 19

    Bolton look dangerous when they build in the middle before spraying it out wide to provide service for Davies and Eagles. Swansea have it on the counter though.

  59. 18

    Miyaichi the 19-year-old on-loan playmaker brings it forwrd for Bolton but over runs it and it carries for a goal-kick

  60. 16

    Bolton are causing all kinds of problems in the Swansea box. Reo-Coker played it into Eagles who tried an ambitious half-volly but didn't catch it right. Vorm was able to palm it away. It's positive play from Bolton

  61. 13

    BOLTON GOAL!!!! Eagles arrived onto a ball into the box from Petrov. Eagles just sweeped it into the net - cool, calm finish from the Wanderers frontman

  62. 11

    Kevin Davies is always the target man but Petrov puts it behind for a goal-kick

  63. 10

    Petrov forces a corner as Bolton look for a rapid responce after the thunderbolt from Sinclair. Caulker defends well and forces another corner

  64. 8

    Swansea force a corner on the counter-attack as Bolton try to come forward. They need to go forward but the Swans are dangerous onthe counter. The corner comes to nothing

  65. 5

    The first real attack of the game as Scott Sinclair picked it up on the edge of the box. Sinclair was given the room, dropped his head and unleashed a beautiful shot which curled right into the top corner - unstoppable effort!

  66. 5

    SWANSEA GOAL!!! Sinclair opens the score with a rocket!!

  67. 3

    As much as I like to see Swansea play I hope the game is not just a case of keep-ball

  68. 3

    Swansea are holding the ball on the half-way line as they so often do. They can control a ball up so well with. An early off-side call gives Bolton a chance to get the ball up-field

  69. 2

    The creative Leon Britton get's cropped down early and Swansea have an early free-kick on mid-way

  70. 1

    And we're off!!

  71. 1

    The teams are out on the pitch and we're about to get underway with Bolton Wanderers

  72. Email me with your thoughts throughout the game at or on Twitter @SkySportsJessM

  73. Bolton have two games in hand on the teams around them. Today is a great opportunity to pull away from the drop zone. Can they turn their form around though as they come into this game on back-to-back defeats??

  74. Bolton will be spurred on with news off the pitch of Fabrice Muamba's mid-week release from hospital following his cardiac arrest as they look to climb out of the bottom three.

  75. Bolton are the side with most to play for today with Swansea all but secured top-flight football with three points against Blackburn last week.

  76. The referee for today's game is Phil Dowd

  77. Swansea lineup looks like: Vorm, Rangel, Caulker, Williams, Taylor, Sigurdsson,Britton, Allen, Dyer, Graham, Sinclair. Subs: Tremmel,Routledge, Monk, McEachran, Lita, Moore, Bessone.
