Holden stunner gives ten-man Bolton victory over Blackburn

Stuart Holden has produced a brilliant late goal to help Bolton Wanderers grab a 2-1 win against the odds over Blackburn Rovers in the English Premier League on Sunday.

The Trotters had midfielder Mark Davies sent off for a second bookable offence in the 56th minute before they managed to hit the lead courtesy of a left-foot lash from Holden’s midfield partner in crime Fabrice Muamba in the 65th minute.

The Rovers finally pulled one back in the 87th minute of the Lancashire derby through Mame Biram Diouf to restore parity but it didn’t last long as Holden produced a moment of magic less than a minute later.

The former Houston Dynamo man got on the end of a header at full speed, controlling with his chest then hitting a sweet volley with his left foot that rippled the back of the net, sending the Reebok Stadium fans into raptures and the Trotters into sixth on the table.
