Bolton 0 Fulham 0

At the Reebok Stadium the honours were shared in a game that was an even affair.

Mark Hughes started his Premier League campaign with a point although he had his keeper, David Stockdale, to thank for some sparkling saves.

Pre-match fitness tests on Mark Schwarzer and Paul Konchesky failed to see either player make the starting eleven with Stockdale and Kelly taking their places.

Fulham, resplendent in their fancy new away kit, were second best to Bolton in the early stages with Elmander looking lively but unable to take a half chance that fell his way.

As the half wore on Fulham mustered some attacks of their own and Murphy saw a shot go just wide whilst and audacious chip from Zamora cleared the keeper but, unfortunately, the bar as well.

Apart from those chances though Bolton were still edging things and Elmander drilled a shot wide from a good position before the first yellow card of the game was handed out to Muamba for a foul on Davies.

Bolton finished the half strongly with Lee having a shot blocked by Etuhu and Muamba shooting wide.

Stockdale came to prominence in the second half thwarting Elmander after the Swede tried to capitalise on a good run from Steinsson, making a good save.

The young keeper repeated the feat later as Elamnder started to rue the chances that were falling his way but ones he couldn`t convert.

Up the other end, Gera saw an overhead kick blocked by Cahill before Bolton thought they`d taken the lead only for Holden`s shot, from outside the area, to hit the post.

So all square, no goals, a long drive back but the prospect of a top notch home opener next week against Manchester United.

Would you expect anything else from a Fulham/Bolton match? Oh, and for what it's worth, Steven Fletcher scored for Wolves. I'm not complaining that we didn't sign him or anything, and it has nothing to do with the fact that I touted him as a great young player that we'd be wise to sign or anything.

Positive result and we threatened more than we ever seemed to under Roy. Good point on the road.
