A fair result of a draw is how coach Hughie McAuley saw this one.
The Reds took the lead through Martin Kelly after just three minutes when he headed home a corner. The Reds had further chances to extend the lead in the game but failed to take them.
Bolton equalised within the first half and could have won the game with a penalty kick but Chris Oldfield saved well as he dived to his left.
Bolton saw their captain sent off just after the final whistle when the referee took exception to being wrestled to the floor. The incident gave the Bolton captain his second yellow card of the game and was duly shown red.
