This live event has finished

9:54pm

All over 2-2.

9:52pm

Diouf clips the bar in injury time. Goodness me.

9:51pm

Whites piling on the pressure, but it looks like finishing 2-2 here.

9:38pm

Kevin Davies heads home!

9:38pm

GOAL 2-2

9:35pm

Excuse the brief updates. Also filing 750 words on the whistle and a back page. You don't want to know what I've done with the sweeping brush...

9:34pm

9:34pm

 
Little bit

9:34pm

Petrov scoops a cross that nearly catches Kenny out. Very little happening for the Whites at the moment.

9:31pm

Attendance: 21,258

9:31pm

Sordell on for Afobe

9:21pm

Petrov on for Spearing.

9:20pm

Mark Davies low shot saved by Kenny. Afobe follows up by a great challenge forces the ball out for a corner.

9:18pm

9:18pm

9:15pm

Four consecutive games that Wanderers have conceded a penalty. That looked a stonewaller too.

9:08pm

Becchio rolls it in 2-1 to Leeds

9:07pm

Foul by Mills on Byram

9:07pm

PENALTY TO LEEDS

8:57pm

8:49pm

Half time - 1-1.

8:46pm

Wondered whether those missed chances would end up costing Wanderers, and they have...

8:45pm

GOAL! Diouf's free-kick played into the near post, flicked on by Byram and into the corner of the net.

8:42pm

Brown booked for a foul on Eagles. They're all at it!

8:41pm

Eagles bends a free kick round the wall but a yard wide. I'd love to know why there are replays on the big screen but not in the press box...

8:39pm

No doubt this is better from the Whites. Eagles tormenting Peltier, who has just got booked for a crude pull of his shirt.

8:34pm

Spearing booked for a foul on Diouf.

8:31pm

Another escape for the Whites as a long ball down the middle had Bogdan in no man's land. Becchio looked ready to pounce until Mills hooked clear.

8:29pm

Byram gets past Knight all too easily, curls a shot towards the far post but inches wide. Let off for the Whites.

8:25pm

Afobe gets through on Kenny, lifts his shot over the advancing keeper but it drifts agonisingly wide. Good ball from Andrews.

8:24pm

But he plays on... Tim Ream and Sam Ricketts warming up just in case.

8:23pm

Mills limping gingerly back to the touchline. Doesn't look too happy.

8:22pm

Mills down with a calf/ankle problem. Looks in some pain.

8:18pm

8:17pm

Eagles hits the post with a stunning angled effort. He's having a blinder so far.

8:16pm

Ball falls kindly for Andrews 20 yards out, he hits a shot on the spin that is gathered well by Kenny.

8:15pm


 

8:15pm

In the hour of need and all that... Eagles had won that corner with some hard running, drawing a tackle out of Eagles. He swung in a fine set piece and SKD couldn't miss really. Third goal of the season for the skipper.

8:13pm

GOAL! Eagles corner and Kevin davies heads home!

8:13pm

Eagles looking decidedly more up for it so far. Just forced a corner with some good running.

8:12pm

Kevin Davies booked for a foul on Tonge.

8:12pm

Eagles cuts in from the left and brings a save out of Kenny. Mark Davies follows up but his shot is blocked by Lees.

8:10pm

 
I will do my very best. Though my playing days are behind me.

8:07pm

Would describe Leeds as niggly, so far. This must be eight free kicks they've given away already.

8:05pm

Ref Phil Dowd comes over to have a word with Neil Warnock... won't be the last time, methinks.

8:03pm

Bruising start for Whites - Mark Davies has already been clattered to the floor by Michael Tonge.

8:00pm

And we're off...

7:56pm

Players out on the pitch. Good reception.

7:52pm

Faithless playing on the tannoy, but I won't read anything into that.

7:52pm

Leeds fans are large in number to my right. Reckon there's a good 3,000+ there...

7:46pm

Will be interesting to see what the atmosphere is like tonight.

7:45pm

Lots of people have already made their mind up on the result tonight, judging by some of the tweets I've had...

On current form, Knight. Yes, I know he was at fault for the penalty on Saturday but up until that point he'd been solid. He's done well over the last few games.

7:22pm

Looks like Ngog absence is down to injury. There was some pre-match rumour about a hamstring issue, but I'll confirm it after the game.

7:21pm



 

7:21pm


 
Just a few of the many tweets I've been getting... @MarcIles

 

7:20pm

Would like to have seen Petrov get a run, probably in place of Mark Davies... But good to see Afobe getting his chance. There had been lots of worried faces around at the weekend.

7:16pm

7:16pm

No place for Petrov, which many fans felt pre-match would be the way to go...

7:15pm

One change for Wanderers - Afobe in for Ngog.

Strange one that. Rumour of a hamstring injury for Ngog, which means a chance for Afobe, who was himself taken to hospital before Saturday's defeat against Crystal Palace.

7:11pm

Teams - Wanderers: Bogdan, Mears, Mills, Knight, Warnock, M Davies, Andrews, Spearing, Eagles, K Davies, Afobe

Subs: Lonergan, Ream, Petrov, Ricketts, Sordell, Pratley, Chung-Yong

Leeds United: Kenny, Peltier, Drury, Lees, Pearce, Austin, Becchio, Brown, Tonge, Diouf, Byram

Subs: Ashdown, Varney, White, Norris, Gray, Thompson, Poleon

6:39pm

Judging by the pre-match build-up this could be a defining night for Owen Coyle. But judging by the see-saw results this season, he's due a win, I suppose!

6:37pm

Good evening all. A quite ridiculous amount of rain coming down at the Reebok right now... and they haven't turned the lights on yet, so excuse any potential typos!

The Championship is a very physical league and many Bolton players look to be out of their depth when it comes to competing.We cant play large periods of games carrying the likes of Eagles and Mark Davies who are fine with the ball in the final third but a liability when the other team have the ball or they need to keep possession in dangerous areas.
