CHAMPIONSHIP

  • BOLTON WANDERERS 1 - 1 YEOVIL TOWN

Yeovil Town were denied their second win of the season after a late equaliser at bottom-of-the-table Bolton.

Adam Bogdan's howler saw Ed Upson score for the visitors with just over 10 minutes left, but Matt Mills' header in injury-time rattled against the post and Alex Baptiste nodded in the rebound.

Yeovil manager Gary Johnson handed a debut to young defender Shane Duffy, who is on a month's loan from Everton.

Medo Kamara had the first real chance to open the scoring early on. His drilled shot from 25 yards rattled the inside of the post to the relief of Yeovil goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

The visitors then almost broke the deadlock five minutes before the break. Andy Williams slid a ball through to Paddy Madden, who forced a smart diving save from Hungary international Bogdan.

In the final minute of the half, Wanderers had the best opportunity to go in ahead. A loose ball fell to Lee Chung-Yong, who seemed to have too much time to think about his shot before forcing Hennessey to parry the ball out with his chest.

The Trotters then came out in the second half looking to make amends for their flat performance. A breakaway move saw Lee and Chris Eagles play a one-two before the South Korea international fed in David Ngog, but the Frenchman failed to curl his shot into the net.

Kamara cut the Yeovil defence wide open with his through-ball sending sub Jermaine Beckford one-on-one with Hennessey. The Wales international goalkeeper came out on top, catching Beckford's effort to the frustration of the home fans.

Eagles then put Beckford clear on the counter once more, with the former Everton forward's first-time shot curled wide.

Just as the home outfit were starting to look like the more likely to score, the moment of madness happened.

A speculative effort from over 30 yards by Upson looked to have dribbled its way into the hands of Bogdan. But instead, the ball agonisingly slipped through his legs and crawled over the line.

Baptiste's late header then saw Bolton level, with Zat Knight almost snatching all three points for the hosts with a header of his own in the last second.

Bristol Rovers picked up their first point away from home on Friday night with a 1-1 draw at Southend.

Matt Harrold put the Pirates ahead when he headed in Michael Smith's cross in the 51st minute.

But the lead only lasted 16 minutes, as Kevan Hurst was given too much space to turn and fire in from 20 yards.
