Liverpool v Bolton Match Report

Midfielder Joe Cole scored the last minute winner for Liverpool over Bolton last night making it 2-1 to secure three points for the Reds.

Liverpool found themselves down one right before halftime, when Bolton midfielder Kevin Davies scored from a header.

Reds’ midfielder Lucas somehow failed to equalise soon after, missing the goal from only six yards out and while being unmarked.

The halftime whistle could not seem to come fast enough. Liverpool needed an obvious break after Fernando Torres put his hand in the face of Bolton’s Cahill, who was then fouled by Lucas right after.

Fans also showed their frustration at halftime when boos rang out from around Anfield.

However the attitudes changed in the few minutes after halftime when a pass from Steven Gerrard assisted Torres in ending his goal drought and equalising 1-1.

The second half continued to see the Reds’ rejuvenated and livelier than a sloppy first half.

In the 82nd minute, Joe Cole came on to replace forward David Ngog.

The substitution proved to be vital as he made it 2-1 two minutes into injury time.

The winner could not have come at a better time for Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson, whose job could be on the line after a disappointing first half to the season.

Despite the win, Liverpool are still four points below Bolton and sitting on the Premier League table at 9th place.
