Jubilant Bolton boss Owen Coyle hailed his team's 3-0 success against West Ham as their best display of the season.
A brace from loanee Daniel Sturridge, either side of Chung-Yong Lee's header, handed Wanderers a comfortable victory in a slick performance at the Reebok.
It was the perfect boost for Coyle's men as they now turn their attentions towards an FA Cup semi-final date against Stoke City.
But the three points also maintained eighth-placed Bolton's hopes of claiming a European spot through their final Premier League placing.
Coyle said: "From start to finish it was an accomplished performance.
"There were some outstanding individual performances and, as a team, a collective effort.
"It was probably one of our best performances of the season and a valuable three points - no doubt about it.
"We wanted to put pressure on Liverpool and Everton and the performance was outstanding.
"When you get the three points on the back of a performance like that it is very pleasing for everyone.
"We have been outstanding at home, very positive, and this result means we go into a massive game next week in good spirits."
Coyle was also pleased with the quality of his side's goals and praised man of the match Sturridge who he has borrowed from Chelsea.
He said: "Every one of the goals was outstanding - both individually and collectively.
"We scored three goals but could have, if the truth be told, had a few more than that.
"I always believed Daniel could play in the Premier League and he is enjoying being at the club."
