Blackburn 2-2 Bolton Highlights

Benni McCarthy snatched a late equaliser at Ewood Park as Blackburn remained unbeaten under former Bolton manager Sam Allardyce.


Bolton looked to be heading for their first win in five Premier League games when Matthew Taylor and Kevin Davies put them two ahead at the break.

But Stephen Warnock pulled one back after the restart before McCarthy missed from the penalty spot.

And McCarthy poked home with four minutes remaining to deny the visitors.

The result was probably a fair one, with Bolton controlling much of the first half and Rovers, who were poor before the break, looking by far the more dangerous side after the restart.

Both sides remain very much in the mire, with Blackburn one point above the relegation zone with 22 points and Bolton with just two points more.
