Bolton made it two wins in as many days as goals from Blerim Dzemaili and Mustapha Riga gave Wanderers a 2-0 victory at Chorley.

After a goalless first half against the Unibond League side, Wanderers broke the deadlock ten minutes into the second half.

Bolton were awarded a penalty and Blerim Dzemaili slotted past the goalkeeper for his first goal in Wanderers colours.

Then, with five minutes remaining, another player got his first goal for the club, this time Mustapha Riga putting the ball into the net to kill the game as a contest.

Gary Megson's men fly out to Greece tomorrow where they will face tough competition from Aris Thessaloniki and AEK Athens during the week.
