Ahead of Bolton's game with Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday, we take a look back at the only previous Reebok Stadium meeting between the clubs.

In the latest edition to the Burnden Aces website, we jump on the #ThrowbackThursday bandwagon and take a look back at a day which lives long in the memory of Wanderers supporters around the world.

Last week, we went back to May 2004 and a 4-1 Wanderers victory over Leeds United. This week, we go back just over 12 months - March 9, 2013 - and Bolton's 1-0 win over Brighton at the Reebok.

After a campaign of struggles, Wanderers had embarked on a late-season unbeaten run and were rapidly rising up the table and towards the play-off places. The win over the Seagulls was their fifth home success on the bounce, marking their best run in over six years.

Marcos Alonso's 20th minute strike proved to be the difference between the two sides and moved Dougie Freedman's side up to 8th in the Championship - just three points adrift of sixth-placed Nottingham Forest and two points behind the team that had just beaten.

In a bizarre afternoon at the Reebok Stadium, Brighton's Ashley Barnes saw red card in second-half stoppage time for inexplicably kicking the heels of match referee Nigel Miller.
