Bolton came from behind to beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-2 in the English Premier League on Saturday.

After a goalless first half, Wolverhampton hit the front, went 3-1 down and then scored again to set up a tense final few minutes at Molineux Stadium.

The loss leaves Wolves last in the league standings and in dire relegation trouble.

The hosts’ opening goal was deserved after they dominated the first half.

After 53 minutes, Michael Kightly received the ball wide on the right with just one opponent to beat and the winger drove inside to shoot across Bolton’s goalkeeper Adam Bogdan and into the far bottom corner of the goal.

But having conceded an average of 3.5 goals per game for the past six matches, Wolverhampton’s lead was always shaky.

In the 63rd minute, Bolton’s Martin Petrov scored from the spot after Mark Davies had been tripped inside the penalty area.

It only got worse for Wolves as goals to Marcos Alonso and Kevin Davies within four minutes of each other gave Bolton a two-goal buffer with just six minutes to play.

A defensive mistake allowed Matthew Jarvis to thump home Wolverhampton’s second goal of the match in the 88th minute but Connor’s men could not find an equaliser.

Wolves’ fifth-straight defeat means they remain bottom of the league with 22 points, six points shy of safety with seven games left this season.
