On this day, in 2005, Henrik Pedersen scored a brace as Bolton won 3-1 at Ipswich Town in the third round of the FA Cup.
In what was billed as a potential banana skin for Sam Allardyce's side, three goals within the space of eight minutes secured Wanderers' passage into the fourth round of the competition.
With an hour played at Portman Road, Stelios Giannakopoulos opened the scoring for the visitors. Two goals in three minutes from Pedersen would finish the job for the Premier League side, despite Tommy Miller netting a consolation for the Tractor Boys with 20 minutes to go.
Bolton would go on to win 1-0 at Oldham Athletic in the next round, before securing a place in the last eight of the competition with another 1-0 win, this time against Fulham at the Reebok Stadium.
Unfortunately for Wanderers, their hopes of a semi-final place came to an end as a solitary strike from Fredrik Ljungberg gave Arsenal victory at the Reebok in the sixth round.
In 2011, late strikes from Kevin Davies and Johan Elmander gave the Trotters a scarcely deserved win over York City in the third round.
Victories over Wigan Athletic, Fulham and Birmingham City would send Bolton to the semi-final stage of the competition, where they would ultimately lose 5-0 to Stoke City at Wembley Stadium.
In 2000, the fourth round took centre stage - with Bolton winning 2-0 at Grimsby Town, courtesy of goals in each half from Eidur Gudjohnsen and Bo Hansen.
Just as they did in 2011, Wanderers would reach the semi-final stage. This time, they saw off Cambridge United and then Charlton Athletic in their way to the last four, before falling to Aston Villa - who beat Allardyce's team on penalties.
