match report

A stoppage-time winner from Johnny Heitinga saw Everton overcome Bolton 2-1 in an FA Cup fourth round clash at the Reebok Stadium.

The Toffees ensured that boss David Moyes had cause for celebration on his 500th game in charge of the club, with Steven Pienaar putting the Premier League side in front during a tight first half.

Marvin Sordell restored parity before the interval but, try as they might, Bolton could not find a second and were undone late on as Heitinga stepped off the bench to fire Everton through.

Everton had looked classy from the start, Pienaar just failing to get on the end of a Nikica Jelavic cross in the opening minute, then Jelavic himself coming close after good work from Victor Anichebe.

And while there was a touch of fortune about Everton's 18th minute opener it was certainly deserved, Leighton Baines feeding Anichebe whose shot took a big deflection off Pienaar and found the net.

But there was an early blow for the visitors soon after when Kevin Mirallas, making his first start in almost two months, was forced off with what could have been a recurrence of his recent hamstring injury.

In what constituted the home side's first chance of the game in the 27th minute, the energetic Darren Pratley swung in a low ball from the left and Sordell swooped into the box to drill a low shot past Tim Howard.

Incredibly Bolton almost grabbed the lead two minutes later when Chris Eagles crossed from the opposite flank and Pratley smashed a fierce long-range shot which Howard did well to parry on the edge of his six-yard box.

Chung-Yong Lee then curled a shot just wide as Dougie Freedman's side, who had struggled to make an impression prior to Sordell's surprise leveller, finished an evenly-poised first period just about on top.

It was an advantage the Trotters maintained in the early stages of the second half as they swept the ball around with increasing confidence and came close through Marcos Alonso, who drilled a low shot straight at Howard.

Everton's response was patchy, Pienaar trying his luck with a looped shot from the corner of the box, but careless play by Marouane Fellaini almost cost the visitors dear in the 65th minute.

The Belgian gave the ball away to Josh Vela deep in the Bolton half, sparking a swift counter-attack which saw Eagles burst down the left and cross into the box where Sordell was inches from connecting for a likely second.

After Andy Lonergan tipped another Pienaar effort wide, Bolton were boosted by Stuart Holden's first appearance at the Reebok Stadium since March 2011, when he replaced Vela for the final eight minutes.

But the day was to end in disappointment for the hosts when Heitinga fired home his dramatic winner - and it could have been even worse as fellow substitute Magaye Gueye rattled the bar soon after.
