Point keeps Sam happy

Bolton Wanderers boss Sam Allardyce thought a 1-1 draw against Everton at the Reebok Stadium on Easter Monday was a fair result as the Trotters remained in the hunt to clinch a top-four place. Kevin Davies netted for Bolton only for Everton teenager James Vaughan to grab an equaliser in a tight encounter. Allardyce said after the draw: "We were right up for it from the beginning and got a really good goal from Kevin Davies. "The quality of the finish was absolutely superb. We put lots of people under pressure from free-kicks and they've probably practiced running out. "(Joleon) Lescott stayed in and played everybody onside, but you can't take away the quality of Kevin's finish - a one-touch swivel on his bad foot, bottom corner. It was a good start from us. "After that we knew it was going to be intense. The real problem was with the way the goal was conceded. We were very disappointed. "Gary Speed tells me that he got caught with an elbow. From that Everton scored and it infuriated the players. "In the second half there was nothing between the two sides but it was disappointing to concede a goal after we had taken the lead."
