Bolton back in the Championship after comfortable win

Posted Sunday, April 30, 2017 by PA

Bolton are back in the SkyBet Championship after an absence of just one season after a 3-0 victory over Peterborough at the Macron Stadium.

Goals from Jem Karacan, David Wheater and Adam Le Fondre got the promotion party started for Phil Parkinson's side.

Parkinson knew a draw would likely be good enough to take Wanderers back into the game's second tier.

So, there was extra insurance against an unlikely Fleetwood landslide win over Port Vale when Karacan's first Wanderers' goal put the Trotters in front after 22 minutes.

Defensive rocks Mark Beevers and Wheater produced vital blocks as Posh searched for an equaliser.

Gary Madine might have eased home nerves before the break only for Luke McGhee to save his close range effort.

That anxiety disappeared, however, when Wheater headed in his ninth goal of the campaign seven minutes into the second period.

And Le Fondre sealed promotion after 75 minutes following Josh Vela's mesmerising approach play.
