Bolton sign striker on loan from Burnley

Bolton Wanderers have announced the signing of striker Chris Long, who joins on loan from Burnley for the remainder of the season.

The former Everton youngster spent the first half of the campaign at League One rivals Fleetwood, where he scored four goals in 23 appearances.


Relegated Bolton shock Hull

Substitute Stephen Dobbie's fourth goal of the season earned relegated Bolton a shock 1-0 Championship victory over Premier League hopefuls Hull at the Macron Stadium.

Dobbie fired home a cross from Lawrie Wilson to give League One-bound Wanderers only a fifth win of a dismal campaign, and a first home triumph in 15 matches.

It also ensured Hull's away hoodoo against Bolton continued unchecked, having not won on Trotters' territory since 1935.

Former Republic of Ireland international Andy Townsend is working in a consultancy role with Bolton as their managerial search drags on.

Press Association Sport understands the 52-year-old television pundit has arrived at the Macron Stadium as an advisor to the new regime, who need to find a permanent successor to Neil Lennon while shaping their squad for a campaign in Sky Bet League One next term.

Speaking last week, new chairman Ken Anderson had hoped to identify the boss he wanted by the end of this week having whittled a shortlist of 50-plus candidates down to three.

However, the process may have been held up by the fact Anderson and chief executive Dean Holdsworth, the two men whose takeover saved the club from financial meltdown last month, cannot agree on who they want to take up the post.

Boro were trailing to the club propping up the division when Josh Vela scored but after Rhodes levelled in the 73rd minute, Boro mustered another late winner for the second time in five days, this time through their £9million striker.
