All the latest from League One
32min: I wouldn't say Bolton have been 2-0 better but they are sure being clinical in front of goal this evening. This isn't over by a long shot – there is more goals in this.
29min: GOAL! BOLTON 2-0 Liverpool
…The Trotters go straight up the other end and score. Chris Eagles plays a short pass to Nigel Reo-Coker in the box, who smashes past a helpless Reina.
29min: I've seen those given. Charlie Adam delivers a free-kick into the box and Carroll's flick-on clearly strikes Zat Knight on the arm for what looks like a penalty. The referee waves play on and it proves costly because…
27min: Bolton are not shutting up shop though, as Johnson has to be on red alert to block David Ngog's cross out for a corner. It comes to nothing though.
24min: Better from Liverpool as Gerrard's perfectly chipped ball into the box is headed on target by Andy Carroll, but straight at Bogdan. Either way he is correctly flagged offside.
21min: We are starting to get a pattern now. Bolton are happy to hand Liverpool possession but to say the visitors lack a cutting edge would be an understatement. The hosts under no real pressure.
18min: Martin Petrov v Glen Johnson will be one to watch. The Bulgarian manages to scamper past the England full-back but no Bolton players is around to meet his near post cross.
Meanwhile at the other end, Henderson tests Bogdan with an effort that the keeper comfortably takes.
16min: One poor aspect from Bolton's game has been free-kicks. They have won a couple inside Liverpool's half but wasted them by punting long balls straight at Reina. Catching practice.
13min: Difficult to say who has the upper hand here. Both sides are having decent spells of play in and around the penalty area but neither really kicking on from there.
10min: Poor from Maxi Rodriguez who latches on to a super pass from Pepe Reina but fails to control it as he ends up giving away a free-kick for handball. Basics, Maxi. Basics.
8min: Fantastic persistence from Chris Eagles. He steals the ball from Jose Enrique on the right flank before holding him off on the byline and trickling a low shot just wide across goal.
6min: Liverpool try to respond with Craig Bellamy on the left flank but there is nobody around to convert his cut-back. Already a few strong challenges are flying in here from both sides.
Slide it lucky: Mark Davies was at full stretch to put Bolton ahead against Liverpool
3min: GOAL! BOLTON 1-0 Liverpool
In fact it's the Reds defence that should be having an internal investigation. Mark Davies runs straight through the centre of it, almost escorted by three red shirts, before tucking neatly into the bottom corner. We have a game on our hands now.
2min: So how will Bolton cope without Gary Cahill Liverpool give an early warning through Jordan Henderson, who escapes down the right before his cross is chested back by Gretar Steinsson to Adam Bogdan.
At full stretch: Bolton's Fabrice Muamba (right) challenges Liverpool's Steven Gerrard
Kick-off: Bolton get us going.
17.28: So what's at stake For Liverpool a win would take them within three points of a Champions League place while victory for Bolton would lift them out of the bottom three.
Mid-table mediocrity this is not.
17.25: Out come the teams then to a very windy Reebok Stadium.
17.22: Full team news from the Reebok Stadium:

17.10: So what's it going to be Bolton and Liverpool
A goalless, cardless affair like Norwich v Chelsea earlier on Or the all-action, full guns blazing drama we saw from across the 3pm kick-offs If we even get a flavour of the action that has just concluded this should be a cracker. Team news coming up.
Three and easy: Charlie Adam scored Liverpool's third in a 3-1 win over Bolton at Anfield in the reverse fixture
