Bolton - Bolton missed their chance to move out of the relegation zone on Sunday after squandering a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at home to West Bromwich Albion, with just one match left to play this season.

Bolton grabbed the lead from the penalty spot in the 24th minute, Martin Petrov slotting home after Mark Davies went down in the box under a combined challenge by Youssouf Mulumbu and Keith Andrews.

The home side went 2-0 up in the 72nd minute courtesy of an own goal, when West Brom's Liam Ridgewell tried to clear but his effort cannoned in off team-mate Billy Jones.

But the visitors pulled a goal back just three minutes later when Chris Brunt steered home from inside the area and James Morrison grabbed a 90th minute equaliser.
