Bolton beat Everton

9:56 am on 14 February 2011

On-loan Bolton Wanderers striker Daniel Sturridge scored his third goal in three games to wrap up a 2-nil victory over Everton in the English Premier football League.

The pacy target man, signed from Chelsea last month, latched on to a knockdown from Lee Chung-Yong to volley powerfully home midway through the second half and maintain his impressive start with his new team.

Defender Gary Cahill opened the scoring early in the match when he found space in the area to head a Stuart Holden free kick into the back of the net with the help of a deflection off Johnny Heitinga.

Bolton remained in eighth place in the standings on 36 points while Everton are struggling in 13th on 30, just three points clear of the relegation zone
