Was easily beaten by Sinclair’s curing effort, but the ‘keeper’s defenders hardly helped the matter. Saved well from a Sigurdsson free-kick that threatened his far corner and in the second-half stopped Graham’s best effort at his front-post in impressive fashion, before one more from the striker 15 minutes from time.
Made a fair few challenges to keep the likes of Graham and Sigurdsson from penetrating the Bolton area, with the odd block thrown in as well for a strong display.
One of two main culprits during Swansea’s early opener after a lackluster attempt to close down Sinclair. Regained some focus to make sure he restricted the actions of Graham and Sinclair.
Slack defending from the full back led to Swansea’s opener after failing to pressure Sinclair, allowing the winger to curl in his delightful shot from the edge of the area. Did well to recover, however, and made a few vital interceptions and blocks to keep Bolton in with a chance of taking all the spoils.
Had little trouble in dealing with Dyer before the attacker was replaced by Moore, the substitute giving the full back some trouble, but handled the attacker well.
A very active member of the Bolton set-up, pacing down what is usually Eagles’ wing to give the hosts varying options in attack, predominantly low balls across goal to unnerve the Swansea defense.
The winger’s tenacious efforts out on the left brought about Bolton’s equalizer, rushing down the flank to deliver a low ball for Eagles to tap in from the middle of the Swansea area. Almost gave the hosts the lead with a well struck free-kick that forced a save out of Vorm at the far post. His runs down the flanks, however, became less effective, despite his restless efforts.
A decent performance from the midfielder and was unlucky to get booked after a tame shirt grab. Moved well through the middle and helped Bolton gain momentum on the attack.
Did well in breaking down Swansea’s moves through the middle, forcing the visitors out wide on most occasions.
Starting the game in the middle as opposed to his usual right-wing position, the former Manchester United man got hold of Petrov’s perfectly directed cross into the middle of the Swans’ area and equalized for the Trotters without pressure from the visitors’ defense. Kept his edge for most of the match and tried to supply the attackers ahead, but no avail.
Didn’t see much action in front of goal, but was always a nuisance for the Swansea defenders in the box and during set-pieces before being replaced by Klasnic.
The Dutchman seemed surprised to see such an open defence in front of him as Eagles struck to peg back for Bolton and had little say in the attacker’s goal. Made a great save at his far post from a free-kick from the foot of Petrov just before the break. Had little to do in the second batch of 45 minutes.
The defender didn’t react to the lone Eagles in the middle of the Swans’ box and watched as the attacker nudged in Bolton’s 24th minute equaliser. Could have made up for his error by getting a header on target just before the break, instead the centre-half nodding just wide of the post. Was forced to defend during the end as Bolton tenaciously fought back against Swansea's momentum and did well to rid his third of danger.
The right-back made poor work of closing down Petrov when the winger put in for Eagles’ goal. Made better work of the Bulgarian in the second-half, restricting the veteran in pacing down the wing.
The left-back had a lot of work to do thanks to Miyaichi’s efforts and was often on the back-foot of the young Japanese attacker’s runs until the winger was replaced. Taylor was then left to deal with Eagles who subsequently reverted back to his normal position.
Another who failed to respond to Petrov’s well-directed ball to Eagles, the centre-back standing frozen at the front-post, whilst the attacker made the most of his free reign in the opposition’s area. However, Caulker covered well and made Kevin Davies work hard for sights on goal.
The midfielder’s movement was entirely fluid at times and really helped the Swans recover in the middle to then get on the attack.
Forever advancing into Bolton’s third when given the chance, the midfielder was the heartbeat of Swansea’s middle-three and played the game intelligently.
Threated with his free-kicks into the Bolton area and fully tested Bogdan with a particular example that almost got in at the far-post. The 22-year-old was always on the move and just needed to try that little bit harder to serve up a decent ball for Graham ahead.
The attacker didn’t even last the first-half of the game after he was brought off for Moore with no obvious injury.
The winger took full advantage of Steinsson’s limited attempts to close the attacker down, before curling in a fantastic effort from the edge of the area. Was very active out on the left for most of the match, but couldn’t be as effective as he had been in the opening minutes with just a half-chance later in the game his only other go on goal.
The striker looked lively from the start, but was restricted by Bolton’s stern defending on the Swansea attack and had little goalmouth action. The biggest chance of his game fell to the attacker in the second-half after being put through on goal from Sigurdsson, but the resulting shot was saved impressively by Bogdan. The 26-year-old had another solid chance from the left channel with a curling effort that smashed off the Bolton cross-bar.
