Sunderland 1-4 Bolton

Nov 30, 2008

Sunderland slipped into the bottom three on a miserable day for Roy Keane’s side as Bolton ran riot at a disgruntled Stadium of Light.

The hosts had taken an early lead through Djibril Cisse’s classy strike.

But Bolton soon equalised via Matthew Taylor’s header and swiftly stole the lead through Gary Cahill’s low drive.

Woeful defensive errors then let Johan Elmander put away clinical goals either side of half-time as Sunderland fell to their fifth defeat in six league games.

It was Keane’s 100th game in charge of the Black Cats, but many Sunderland supporters left before full-time while boos rang out around the stadium at the final whistle following the club’s third straight home defeat.
