Bolton 1-1 Swansea
Barclays Premier League - Saturday, 21 April 2012
Chris Eagles rescued a point for relegation-threatened Bolton, who were given a stern test by Swansea.
Scott Sinclair gave the visitors a perfect start with a spectacular early opener, cutting in from the wing before unleashing a curling shot into the top corner.
Eagles soon had Bolton level, however, as he arrived on cue to turn Martin Petrov's left-wing cross past Michel Vorm.
But Bolton were thankful for a series of Gretar Steinsson blocks, while the crossbar denied the Swans' Danny Graham in the second half.
It was a tale of two sides heading in opposite directions as Bolton eventually suffered relegation from the top-flight after a ten-year spell in the Premier League, while the Swans went on to finish 11th in a fine debut campaign amongst English football's elite.
BOLTON: Bogdan, Stensson, Ricketts, Wheater, Ream, Eagles, Petrov, Davies (Vela, 90), Reo-Coker, Davies (Klasnic, 79), Miyaichi (Ngog, 65).
SWANS: Vorm, Rangel, Caulker, Williams, Taylor, Britton, Allen, Dyer (Moore, 29), Sinclair, Sigurdsson, Graham (Lita, 79).
