Bolton celebrate
Bolton players celebrate Cahill's fine strike for the second goal

Johan Elmander's first goal this season set the seal on a hard-fought extra-time victory for Bolton over West Ham in the third round of the Carling Cup.

Herita Ilunga had poked in at the far post to put the Hammers 1-0 up and that was the score with four minutes left.

But Kevin Davies stooped low to direct a fine header in to take the game into extra time, before Gary Cahill crashed in a fine goal to put the hosts ahead.

And Elmander tapped in for the first time since December to seal the win.

Although the Premier League remains the priority for Bolton, the victory provided a welcome confidence boost after a sketchy start to the season, while for West Ham it is a seventh failure in eight years to reach the fourth round.

It looked like being very different, however, when Ilunga poked in his first senior goal for West Ham after the hosts failed to clear Alessandro Diamanti's poorly-hit corner.

The goal had come against the run of play, and Bolton's pressure at set-pieces in particular finally told in the 86th minute when Davies headed in Matthew Taylor's whipped cross.

That sent the match into extra time, and Taylor almost won the match four minutes into the first period only for his 25-yard free-kick to rebound off a post with keeper Robert Green well beaten.

Cahill did put Bolton 2-1 up, though, when he smashed home from outside the penalty area.

Diamanti hit the crossbar with a left-footed curling shot nine minutes from the end, but that was the closest West Ham came as Elmander added the decisive third late on to wrap up a deserved victory.
