Bolton held by 10-man Burton

Kieran Lee had a first-half goal that was controversially dismissed for offside as Bolton and Burton played a lively 10-player 0-0 draw in the first division.

Lee’s 30-minute shot seemed initially forgiven by referee Josh Smith.

But after protests from Brewers goalkeeper Ben Garratt and consultation with his assistant referee, striker Eoin Doyle was in Garratt’s eyes when Lee shot into goal.

Burton, who could have gone to the top with a win, had sacked skipper John Brayford in the 69th and 86th minutes because of yellow cards.

But Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side stood up to whatever Bolton could throw at them to advance to third place.

It’s been a frustrating night for Ian Evatt’s side, who have now lost three and drawn two out of five league games with Albion.

Doyle had saved one attempt and blocked another before Lee was struck while the always dangerous Oladapo Afolayan hit the woodwork in the second half.

The guests only threatened Bolton goalkeeper Joel Dixon once when he saved Joe Powell’s low shot with his left foot after 21 minutes.
