Sammy Ameobi’s brilliant individual goal was enough to help pull Bolton out of the Championship relegation zone with victory against Bristol City, according to a BBC Sports report.
Ameobi netted his first goal for the Trotters since October with a fine run and low finish in the second half.
Defeat for promotion contenders Bristol City saw them miss the chance to close the gap on the top two.
Bobby Reid was denied what appeared to be a penalty early in the game when Ben Alnwick collided with him.
Bolton climb to 19th with the victory, which came in the week they sold leading scorer Gary Madine to Cardiff City for £6m.
Ameobi provided the only goal of a cagey game after he won the ball on the edge of his own penalty area and was allowed a free run before shooting from 20 yards out.
He came within inches of a spectacular opener in the first half with a curling left-footed effort.
