We have waited a few days for this, but here it is! Bolton Wanderers' victory against the mighty Sunderland now has a set of video highlights to go with it!
Bolton travelled to Sunderland for the FA Cup third round replay with little hope of a win being on the cards. Bolton had thrown away a two goal lead at the Reebok Stadium after Sunderland came back strongly in the second half to earn a the replay. Dougie Freedman made positive changes to the team, however, and they went on to impress. Afobe, Sordell, Lonergan (in goal), Vela, Holden and Ricketts all featured and Bolton looked all the better for it.
It was almost 20 years to the day since Bolton went to Anfield and recorded a 2-0 win in very similar circumstances in an FA Cup replay against Liverpool. Just as against Sunderland this time around Bolton had taken a two goal lead at home against Premiership opposition only to see the big boys fight back to earn a draw and replay. In the video below you can enjoy the famous victory all over again. This was the start of the so called "White Hot Years" where Second Division Bolton Wanderers took on the elite teams and won!
