Bolton remain rooted in the relegation zone after going down 2-0 on home turf to Everton, their cause not helped by the first-half sending off of David Wheater. Everton are now eighth in the Premiership after their third away win of the campaign against a struggling Bolton outfit who have only won five top flight games since mid-February.
This was the Trotters tenth league defeat of the season and looked on the cards from the 20th minute when Wheater was shown a straight red for a lunge on Diniyar Bilyaletdinov.
The home side held out until half-time but after the break conceded twice leaving them eleven games since they kept a clean sheet against the Toffees.
With the visitor's making their numerical advantage felt they easily controlled play and ensured the three points with 12 minutes remaining.
