Untested for much of the game but made a fine stop in the second half, after Davies had wriggled his way through the Everton defence, to keep scores level. The last man you would've expected to score but managed to put the Toffees in front with a long clearance which bounced over Bogdan.
Saw few backheels fail to come off early on but continued to get up and down the flank. Nullified Chris Eagles' threat completely and was so unfortunate to see a free kick come off the bar in the dying seconds.
Saw a lot of the ball but didn't always pick the right option. Also allowed a ball to bounce needlessly which almost saw N'Gog give his side the lead.
Had looked composed and pacy at the back but as part of a defence that crumbled after going ahead.
Saw his night ended early during the first half through injury after looking solid defensively but poor in distribution.
Didn't do enough with the ball in midfield but had looked as comfortable as ever when moved to central defence, after Jagielka's injury. That was until he allowed Ngog to turn too easily and equalise for the Trotters.
Had been Everton's creative spark in the middle but was removed five minutes into the second half and came of looking to be moving uncomfortably.
Misplaced several passes and, as captain, must take responsibility for Everton's failure to hold the lead.
Had a poor game by his standards, failed to give Cahill any real trouble.
Looked like the answer to the Blues' attacking woes in the opening 10 minutes but saw his influence wane against a determined Ricketts.
Showed great fight and won several headers but was marshalled brilliantly by Knight.
Looked comfortable as the hosts failed to muster clear-cut chances but punched unconvincingly on one occasion and was fortunate to get away with it. Could not have expected the wind to take the ball as it did and now has the honour of having been beaten by another keeper.
A fantastic performance from the left back who, after a shaky opening, shackled Landon Donovan brilliantly.
Dominated Stracqualursi throughout to provide a solid foundation for Owen Coyle's side.
Made a few indecisive headers but was challenged little by the ineffective Saha. Had he cleared Tim Howard's hoof up field, he could well have prevented the embarrassment which followed for his keeper. Made up for that, however, with a striker's finish to put his side ahead.
Stuck to his task well but subsequently provided little support to Eagles on the right.
Was a constant counter-attacking threat for Bolton and could've caused more damage had he been found free on several occasions.
Has started to show more of the driving runs from his West Ham days recently and it was one such run which allowed Ngog to equalise.
Continues to shine in a creative role under Owen Coyle's passing ethos. Unfortunate with a chance in the first half, after a jinking run, which Howard saved well.
Not as effective as he can be up against the experienced Leighton Baines but then crucially involved in the goal which put his side ahead by playing a clever through ball to Cahill.
Provided a defensive shield down the middle but did little on the ball.

Replaced the injured Jagielka but missed a chance in the box before being substituted himself 20 minutes later, seemingly injured.
Struggled to influence after coming on.
Provided little guile but had little of the ball as Everton toiled.
