WANDERERS had a third player sent off in four games as goals from Mikel Arteta and Steven Pienaar handed Everton victory at Goodison Park.

Gretar Steinsson became the latest Bolton player to see red after he was dismissed for a professional foul on Yakubu on 72 minutes.

From the resulting free-kick, Mikel Arteta curled home the opener in a game Owen Coyle’s side were unfortunate to go home empty-handed in after another encouraging display.

The visitors, chasing a fourth victory in five games, created the better chances and Kevin Davies missed a great opportunity to open the scoring six minutes before half-time after a superb Wanderers move.

Everton dominated the second period without ever causing Bolton any real problems until Steinsson’s red card swung the match decisively in the Merseysider’s favour.

Pienaar wrapped up the points in the last minute when he swept home Leon Osman’s pull back.
