Blackburn 4-1 Bolton Highlights
Benni McCarthy scored two penalties as Blackburn swept luckless Bolton aside.
McCarthy blasted home after Gretar Steinsson fouled David Dunn but replays suggested the ball was won cleanly. Bolton were again unfortunate when Kevin Nolan struck the bar but Kevin Davies fired them level following a punt forward from Ivan Campo. McCarthy netted after Cahill fouled Dunn, David Bentley headed in the third from Dunn’s cross and Morten Gamst Pedersen swept in a fourth at the end. Blackburn’s first victory in five games – which completed the double over their local rivals – boosts their hopes of qualifying for the Uefa Cup, while Bolton will reflect on a week of mixed fortunes.
