Match report to come...
All over. Leeds win 1-0.
Even Bogdan going up.
Mills fires another long ball in but Silvestri dives on it. Could be game over now.
Wanderers throwing everything forward now.
That was incredible...
Amazing scramble. Beckford's header saved point blank by Silvestri. Another shot by Chungy was blocked on the line by the keeper.
Five minutes of added time.
Beckford hasn't endeared himself to the Bolton fans by waving at the Leeds end...
Beckford turns 20 yards out but his effort is off target. Time running out...
Medo off, Feeney on.
White raids down the right but gets himself in a tangle. Goal kick.
Time ticking away. Less than 10 mins left now.
Leeds - Benedicic for Sloth
Wanderers - Beckford for Davies
Nothing from the ref and Leeds break.
Calls for a pen from the Wanderers fans as Mills is pushed.
Really dangerous ball in. Cleared for now.
Another corner - Ream's shot blocked.
Danns gets it round the wall but Silvestri pushes it for a corner.
Free kick in a decent area for Wanderers first, though.
Beckford now coming on. Must have heard me!
@MarcIles how was the half time brew today ? Any decent chances?— @Big_E_Est1986 30 August 2014
Just under 20 minutes left. Impetus with Leeds at the moment.
Can't understand why we haven't seen a substitution yet.
Mason gets he ball from White, turns and shoots well over.
A better ball from Taylor and Mowatt would have been clean through on goal. Gaps starting to open up.
Antenucci sends a cross into the box - no-one there. Home crowd buzzing again.
Leeds just starting to probe now. Getting hold of the ball more.
Silvestri called upon again - palmed away Chungy's shot from the edge of the box.
Pearce makes another good challenge on Mason. Danns had played him in on goal.
21,901 here at Elland Road.
Can't see it being long before Beckford and/or Feeney come into this game.
Wanderers just exerting a bit of pressure now. Moving the ball around a bit better.
Foul on the keeper after the corner was swung in.
Davies's free kick hits the wall and skids out of play.
Davies fouled right on the edge of the box by Pearce. Yellow card.
Mills should have done better from the corner. Looked to have a free header.
Spearing's low shot from distance is turned away by Silvestri. Mason follows up by Belluscio gets a challenge in.
Charlie Taylor on for Warnock
Mason's shot is blocked by Pearce, who then recovers to make a second challenge on the Whites striker.
Think he got a boot in the shoulder. Always in the wars that one...
Bit of treatment for Bogdan after he rushed off his line to grab the ball from Medo.
Mason clips a ball in for Davies but defender gets enough on it to clear with his head.
Second half underway!
Wanderers are certainly going to have to scrap more to get into this game.
Davies and Bellusci certainly enjoyed an interesting tussle in the first half. Looked to have carried on down the tunnel.
Half time - Wanderers ahead on chances, but Leeds on goals. Know where I'd rather be.
Great ball from Danns to find Mason - he didn't have a lot to aim at but drove a shot to the near post, blocked by Sivestri.
Good run from Sharp - his shot skims the top of the bar as the half goes into added time.
Good run from White on the right but Chungy makes a mistake in possession and Wanderers are back on the retreat.
"Freedman sort it out" comes the cry from the crowd. Danns back up and running, thankfully.
Hope this isn't a bad injury, that is...
Hope this isn't a bad one.
Bad tackle from Wooton on Danns. Scream of pain from the Wanderers midfielder as he hit the deck.
Silvestri to the rescue for Leeds again, blocking Mason's effort after he had wrestled his way past Pearce. At the other end, Mills had put in a cracking challenge to half-block Mowatt's blast at goal.
So we know Phil Gartside and Eddie Davies (and Brett Warbuton) are watching this one. Penny for their thoughts?

Sorry for the typos, on my phone as I'm in the states.
Marc I'll tweet you the photo now
Better service than my photographers!
It has been another "tight game" to use the manager's terminology. Again, Wanderers find themselves "on the wrong side" to use another...
White lofts an aimless cross in to Silvestri. But for that early chance pushed on to the bar for Mason, Wanderers haven't created much.
3:28pm Sat 30 Aug 14
With Gartside and Davies watching, there's something slightly ironic about that goal. The scorer, someone that helped us greatly push on and almost make the promos land. The opponent, someone who's descent from promise is happening at its highest ever rate.
Come on Bolton fight and bring it back.
Is that a confirmed sighting of Phil and Eddie??
Bianchi and Wooton combine on the right and Antenucci's flicked header is plucked from the air by Bogdan.
@MarcIles Good omen, at least we didn't lose the lead #hopeful— @PoshBathing 30 August 2014
Leeds win another corner on the right. Everthing but the goal has been down Ream's side.
Leeds playing the ball around nicely. Considering the turmoil, Neil Redfearn will be delighted.
It's all very deep for Wanderers too - everyone seems to be camped in the first third of the pitch.
Mason had that early chance but we've hardly seen him.
Wanderers just not able to get anything moving in midfield. Davies is getting hold of the ball when it's played up to him but there isn't much after that.
Davies manufactures a little bit of space to strike at goal but it's wide.
Leeds passing and moving in midfield in a way Wanderers haven't all season. Little Lewis Cook looks a decent player.
About 25 minutes in and I think that's the first time Chung-Yong Lee has got the ball.
Meanwhile, Leeds clear the corner. Chungy plays a ball in defending well by Pearce and the second cross by Dervite is collected by the keeper.
They certainly like Beckford here. Still chanting his name.
Andy Hughes also getting a warm round of applause.
Danns tries his luck from 25 yards bit it takes a nick off a Leeds defender for a corner.
Ref Simon Hooper has a word with Ream after he brings down Sloth.
The former Whites loanee played in by Billy Sharp on the left. It was good football by Leeds on the edge of the box. Antenucci and Bianchi also involved.
It's Stephen Wanock who drills a shot/cross inside the far post.
Casper Sloth lifts a shot over the bar from the edge of the box.
Beckford gives the Leeds fans a wave... not terribly advisable in front of the Wanderers fans.
Spearing played a great ball through - Mason beat Pearce for pace but it was a great save from the keeper.
Silvestri pushes Mason's shot on to the crossbar.
Half chance for Wanderers as Feeney and Davies get some space on the left. All withers away a little after a poor pass from Spearing.
Wheater limping off. Didn't see much in the original challenge he made other than perhaps over-stretching. Early blow for Wanderers.
Wheater coming off here. Dervite on.
Davies gets round the outside of Bellusci but the Italian makes a late challenge to stop him getting in on goal. Should have been a corner for me.
Little scramble in the box but Wanderers get it clear.
Antenucci wins a corner for Leeds. Came about because of a poor throw on Wanderers' left.
Giant staircase to my right, obscuring my view of the right side of the pitch. Ball is over there at the moment, so I'll twiddle my thumbs.
We're off. Mason definitely dropping deeper behind Davies.
If they are anywhere near as good as last year, we should be OK.
But all that could be about to change. Who knows!
Marching on Together blaring out at the moment. Wanderers have been rather limping along so far this season...
2:52pm Sat 30 Aug 14
So let me get this right, DF quote, "Beckford is an out and out goal scorer." This after he scores 2 goals in his previous game then promptly drops him ! Makes sense to me Dougie lad !
A reminder of a special match tomorrow involving a lot of the White Hot players at Daisy Hill FC tomorrow. Noon start.
John McGinlay, Phil Brown, Mark Patterson, Tony Kelly, Keith Branagan, Aidan Davison, Alan Thompson, David Lee, Nicky Spooner, Alan Stubbs all scheduled to play.
Our Bolton News cameras will be there too.
Wanderers could certainly do with raising the mood heaidng into the international break.
2:50pm Sat 30 Aug 14
Sat in the away end at Elland road. Let's hope we dig a win out. This is a massive game for both clubs. So early in the season too. The result here will either kick start our season or get dougie the sack!
Sat with John McGinlay and Andy Walker in the press room, both swapping footy stories. Great fun.
The only suggestion I'd give on Beckford not playing today was that he did go through 120 mins the other night. But does seem an odd one.
2:35pm Sat 30 Aug 14
North East Paul says
I agree with Armitage93, why oh why leave a striker out who has just scored twice in our last game?
Andy Hughes' inclusion on the bench hasn't gone down well with the Wanderers fans. Few bodies out - McNaughton, Moxey, M Davies etc, but a surprising decision perhaps.
@MarcIles probably not— @warby78 30 August 2014
@MarcIles keep the ball on the deck and we will, clip and punt like last week, we'll get beat. Spearing and Medo must improve— @mervynthepanda 30 August 2014
@MarcIles 2-1 loss, we won't turn the corner with Freedman in charge #FreedmanOut— @tim_rigby 30 August 2014
2:17pm Sat 30 Aug 14
Massive call from Dougie to leave out Beckford, Pratley and Feeney given their huge impact on the last game. Mason hasn't been fantastic recently and I am very surprised he didn't opt with Beckford instead. Both came off the bench and the one who didn't score 2 goals has started... Hoping for the best but one can't help but wonder, given current circumstances, Dougie will do or die by this decision....
Come on whites!
@MarcIles why hasnt he put beckford on from the start give the bloke a chance against his old club and reward for his 2 goals in the week.— @petermarkb 30 August 2014
@MarcIles I think we could. It's Football, anything could happen— @adamjones_bwfc 30 August 2014
2:22pm Sat 30 Aug 14
No Beckford against his former team. Having just scored twice in midweek too. If this proves a wrong decision by Dougie surely Gartside and Davies will give him the sack during the international break.
@MarcIles no. Spearing and Medo. Loss on its way.— @WesleyBwfcHead 30 August 2014
So, what do we think? Can Wanderers get their first win of the season today?
Leeds: Silvestri, Wootton, Bellusci, Pearce, Warnock, Cook, Mowatt, Bianchi, Sloth, Sharp, Antenucci
Team today - Bogdan; White, Mills, Wheater, Ream; Medo, Spearing, Danns, Chungy-Yong, Mason, C Davies.
Subs: Lonergan, Dervite, Pratley, Hughes, Hall, Feeney, Beckford.
With the international break looming, it would be a long old fortnight if the Whites were to lose this one.
Good afternoon and welcome to Matchday Live - a big one for Wanderers.
