Bolton   2 - 0   Sheff Utd

Gretar Steinsson
Steinsson joined Bolton from AZ Alkmaar in 2008

Owen Coyle secured his first win as Bolton manager as Wanderers clinched victory in a match low on chances.

Thick fog shrouded the Reebok Stadium and there was little to brighten the gloom in a disappointing opening half.

But Bolton took the lead soon after the break when Gretar Steinsson collected a Kevin Davies pass and shot through Mark Bunn's legs from a narrow angle.

The home side had plenty of possession and six minutes from time substitute Johan Elmander fired in the second.

One player to prosper in the murky conditions was South Korean Lee Chung-yong, who sent in a teasing early cross from the right.

However, the man closest to it was defender Jlloyd Samuel, playing in an unfamiliar left-midfield role, who appeared in the six-yard box but could not make contact, which rather summed up Bolton in the first half.

Ivan Klasnic, with five goals in his last nine matches, brought the first save out from Bunn following Tamir Cohen's cut-back.

At the other end Blades striker Henri Camara should have done better when James Harper's perfectly-weighted through-ball found him, but though he lifted over Jussi Jaaskelainen, he also cleared the crossbar.

The frustration began to grow as Klasnic curled in a poor 20-yard effort which was easily cleared.

Klasnic then directed a low 12-yard header so wide it almost went out for a throw-in before being collected by right-back Kyle Walker.

But Lee's diagonal run and pass allowed Davies to turn and slide a short pass between the defenders for right-back Steinsson to run on and notch his first goal of the season, his maiden FA Cup strike.

United manager Kevin Blackwell brought on strikers Richard Cresswell and Ched Evans but they were unable to make significant impact.

The home side still needed the security of a second goal and it arrived after more good work from Lee, who scooped a pass to Elmander for a repeat of Steinsson's well-worked effort.


Bolton manager Owen Coyle:
"The first half was quite even, I told the lads at half-time to pass and move the ball a bit more rather than be one-dimensional.

"We did that and scored two very good goals and could have had a few others.

"I'm delighted to take the win, a clean sheet and a lot of positives in terms of the goal threat we had."

Sheffield United boss Kevin Blackwell:

"If we had taken our chances in the first half the game could have been dead and buried.

"They were two sloppy goals to concede and straight after half-time it was very disappointing.

"When you concede goals as early as that we had to chase the game and it disrupted us a little bit."
