BOLTON Town moved off the bottom of the Bolton At Home Sunday Football League Division One table with a hard-fought 4-1 victory over fourth-placed Nelson Wanderers.

Town had to come from a goal down after Jordan Byrne New gave Wanderers the lead with a powerful 25-yard free kick on 30 minutes.

With Gaz French and Danny Godridge controlling midfield at Barlow Park, Town got back into the game a minute before the interval with a goal by Luke Gilligan.

Man-of-the-match Godridge put Bolton ahead with a thunderous low shot, and they extended their lead in the 75th minute when John Yates beat a defender then the keeper with a curling effort.

Substitute Sky Harris capped a stunning victory a minute from time.

Third-placed Dehaviland beat in-form Tempest 3-2 away.

Jay Manion put the visitors ahead midway through the first half, and a neat finish from Bobby Tait doubled the lead just before half time.

It was 3-0 to the Farnworth side five minutes into the second half when Manion got his second, a goal which seemed to wake up Tempest.

The Lostock team's midfield talisman Kris Powers took the bull by the horns in an attempt to get his team back into the game.

On 70 minutes he played a superb ball to Tempest's leading goalscorer Heath Ainscow who made no mistake with his finish.

The same two players were involved in Tempest's second with 10 minutes to go, with Ainscow again on target to set up a thrilling finish in which Tempest piled on the pressure but could not muster an equaliser, partly due to two excellent saves from Dehaviland goalkeeper Dean Usher.

Astley Bridge Elite convincingly beat Breightmet Wanderers 8-3 at St Catherine’s.

Joe Howlin scored a hat-trick for the visitors, with his brother, Tom, and Nathan Molyneaux getting a brace, and Daniel Mongford getting Astley Bridge's other goal.

Marcus Makin, Kyle Bailey and Dillon Hewitt replied for Wanderers.
