Newcastle 1-0 Bolton Highlights
Michael Owen came off the bench to earn Newcastle a win over a Bolton side who paid the price for a missed penalty.
The visitors had a chance to take the lead when Steven Taylor handled a cross but Kevin Nolan saw his spot-kick saved by Magpies keeper Shay Given.
Owen punished the miss when he headed in a Geremi cross at the far post.
James Milner missed a free Newcastle header from 10 yards but, despite Nolan nodding wide and having a shot blocked, the home side held on for the win.
The hard-fought victory continues the promising start the Tyneside club have made to the campaign after their season-opening draw at Manchester United.
