Bolton 5-0 Stoke

Ivan Klasnic and Chris Eagles grabbed two goals each as Bolton ended their run of five straight Barclays Premier League defeats at home in dramatic fashion. 

Bolton skipper Kevin Davies opened the scoring after just two minutes and Eagles doubled their lead midway through the first half.

Three goals in a 20-minute second-half spell saw Bolton run out comfortable winners and exact a measure of revenge for their 5-0 FA Cup semi-final defeat against Stoke last season.
