Bolton pulled a goal back before half-time, when Kioso's cross deflected into the path of George Thomason who nodded home.

After the break, the Trotters reduced the arrears further when Nathan Delfouneso powered a header into the net with four minutes remaining.

Wanderers were back on terms less than a minute later, Kioso rising unmarked to score his third goal for the club since arriving from Luton in October.
