Bolton:

Kevin Nolan's goal in the 32nd minute gave Bolton a 1-0 victory over Tottenham on Monday. The win lifted the Wanderers into third place in the English Premier League behind Chelsea and Wigan. Nolan scored his goal with England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson watching at Reebok Stadium. The Bolton captain scored on a blistering shot from 20 meters. A few minutes later, Jermain Defoe seemed to have equalized for Tottenham, but the goal was voided because of an offside call. A television replay appeared to show the play onside. Nolan, considered by many as a future England international, almost scored a second goal late in the first half when his shot hit the post. Bolton relied on its defense to hold off Tottenham in the second half. The Wanderers have allowed 11 goals in 12 league games. The victory was Bolton's third straight in the Premier League, following victories over West Brom and Charlton. Chelsea leads the Premier League with 31 points followed by Wigan (25) and Bolton (23). Man United is next with 21, one more than Tottenham and Manchester City. (AP)
