Bolton keeper Al Habsi impresses in friendly draw

Bolton Wanderers conceded a late goal as they continued their pre-season preparations with a 1-1 draw against Greek outfit Aris at the Kleanthis Vikelides Stadium.

Grant McCann had given Gary Megson's a 1-0 lead nine minutes from full-time with a header from close range.

Wanderers substitute Blerim Dzemaili whipped in a dangerous cross which was glanced on to the bar by Kevin Nolan and the ball fell to McCann who nodded it home.

Bolton goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi made several top-class saves as Aris, who faced the Trotters in last season's UEFA Cup, pushed for an equaliser.

Their rearguard was eventually breached in injury time when Spanish striker Javito was sent clear and slid the ball beyond Al Habsi.
