Teimourian finds his feet

Bolton Wanderers manager Sam Allardyce praised match-winner Andranik Teimourian after his double strike secured a 3-1 victory at Wigan Athletic. The 24-year-old Iran midfielder has taken time to settle since his arrival in England last summer, but showed his undoubted class to ensure Bolton left the JJB Stadium with all three points. Allardyce commented: "I was getting worried because we were creating chances and missing them, but we have found a little diamond who is progressing nicely. "The clinical finishing he showed was the difference between the two sides in the end and they were two great finishes. "For the first, most players would have taken a touch, but he didn't. He hit it first time and it was past the keeper before he could get down. "Then he popped up at the far post on a late run completely unmarked, and I didn't know he could head the ball, but he showed me then he can do that. "That put the game beyond Wigan's reach, because I felt at 2-1 they were always going to be dangerous."
