The opening goal in Bolton's 3-1 win at Wigan Athletic in October has been taken away from Nigel Reo-Coker.

The Premier League's Dubious Goals Panel met earlier in the week to cast their eyes over 25 dubious goals that were scored between 12th October and 21st December 2011.

One of those was Wanderers' early goal at the DW Stadium, which now stands as a Gary Caldwell own goal.

Three dubious goals scored against the Trotters have also been verified by the commitee.

Shane Long has been credited with West Bromwich Albion's winning goal in their 2-1 win over Owen Coyle's side in November.

Tottenham Hotspur's Gareth Bale has been confirmed as the scorer of their opening goal in their 3-0 success over Wanderers at White Hart Lane on December 3.

Finally, Stiliyan Petrov has been confirmed as the scorer of the winning goal in Aston Villa's 2-1 win at the Reebok Stadium on December 10.
