Tranmere   0 - 1   Bolton

Mark Davies bagged his first goal for Bolton as the Premier League outfit reached the Carling Cup third round at the expense of League One Tranmere.

The first-half winner was made by Kevin Davies, the striker playing in his midfield namesake whose shot somehow went through the keeper's grasp and in.

That followed a good spell from the hosts, for whom John Welsh went close.

However, Bolton settled after the break and it could have been more had Luke Daniels not kept out Sean Davis's shot.


Tranmere manager John Barnes told BBC Radio Merseyside:

"The performance I was more pleased with - not just the performance but the attitude and the commitment and the desire.

"We all know what Bolton are about and they are strong and physically. So you have to stand up to them and we did."
