Bolton 1-0 West Ham Highlights
Kevin Davies earned Bolton three priceless points on a lively afternoon at the Reebok Stadium.
They should have led by half-time as Davies saw two headers cleared off the line and El-Hadji Diouf had a goal ruled out for off-side. He finally found a way through after the break, poking home after Jonathan Spector had impeded his own goalkeeper. Dean Ashton’s overhead shot tipped onto the bar was West Ham’s best chance in a frantic second half but Bolton held on. Any plans West Ham may have had for the afternoon were thrown into disarray as early as the first minute, when Anton Ferdinand limped off with a hamstring injury. This may explain why they seemed so out of sorts for most of the first half, as the home side dominated without managing to get on the scoreboard.
