  • Bolton 1 Everton 2. The visitors make it through to round five. They left it very late and the Trotters are unfortunate to bow out after more than holding their own.

  • Fellaini runs the ball to the corner. Clock ticks down and Bolton can do nothing about it. They do get the ball back and spring Ngog clear. His blocked shot falls to Afobe, who lashes over the top.

  • Everton so close to a third at the very end. Gueye skips inside his man and fires goalwards. His fierce drive cannons off the crossbar and away. That might be it.

  • Delay to the re-start as the referee has words with a couple of Everton players. Not sure what that is about. Surely this game is over now.

  • GOAL EVERTON - HEITINGA. Looks like the visitors have snacthed it. Bolton fail to clear their lines from the corner and the ball eventually falls Heitinga's way. He lashes home from 12 yards out.

  • Three minutes of stoppage time to be played.

  • Spearing pokes the ball up and over the Everton back four. There are runners after it, forcing Howard from his goal. He dives on the ball right on the edge of his box. Calls from the crowd that he slipped out fall on deaf ears. Everton go and win a corner.

  • Bolton force a very late corner. Great delivery is flicked across the face of goal by Knight. All it needs is a touch, with the goal gaping, but no-one in white has gambled.

  • Fellaini unable to gather the ball on the edge of the box. Nothing has stuck for him today, with the ball bouncing in all directions off his boots and barnet.

  • Neville able to meet the free-kick, but heads into the back of Afobe. Neville then gets plenty of abuse from the home support as he takes a throw. Former Manchester United man not too popular in these parts.

  • Decision goes Bolton's way and Fellaini isn't happy. Waving his arms around and moaning only serves to get him booked.

  • Final change by Bolton as Ngog is sent on in place of the hard-working Sordell. His effort may have earned the Trotters a replay.

  • Ream taking no chances as he goes back to Lonergan. His sliced clearance keeps Bolton inside their own half. That is until Alonso spins away from Fellaini. The move soon breaks down.

  • Spearing forced to go backwards. Alonso then sends the ball down the line for Pratley. He feeds a pass into the feet of Sordell, but he is crowded out inside the penalty area.

  • Bolton force a corner down their left. The big men trot forward from the back. The delivery is not the worst, but Jagielka powers a header back downfield.

  • Jelavic makes way for Heitinga in Everton's second change of the afternoon, while Holden is given a great reception as he replaces Vela.

  • Will we get a winner here. More changes being prepared down below, with both managers planning to mix things up.

  • Another wayward pass makes its way into the arms of Howard, Bolton knocking on the door, but they can't open it.

  • Once again Spearing gets too much on his delivery. He is looking to bend the ball towards a runner at the back post, but is getting under the ball too much. Goal kick to Everton.

  • Spearing's delivery is poor and he floats the ball straight into the hands of Howard. Bolton get the ball back. Fellaini goes with a run from Pratley, before tripping him 35 yards from goal. He escapes a caution.
