Bolton Wanderers 1-1 Southend United

Keshi Anderson scores
Keshi Anderson's leap created the equaliser - the striker only joined Bolton on loan on transfer deadline day

Southend survived a Bolton Wanderers onslaught to come away from the League One leaders with a point.

Harry Kyprianou's early goal gave the visitors the lead as he fired John White's deep cross into the top corner.

Bolton put Southend under pressure for long periods, but Gary Madine, debutant Keshi Anderson, Jay Spearing and Liam Trotter all missed good chances.

Anderson bundled in an equaliser soon after half-time after putting goalkeeper Ted Smith under pressure.

Bolton stay top of the table by two points while Southend are a point above the relegation zone.

Wanderers had three efforts cleared off the line by Southend in the first half as they tried to respond to the visitors' opening goal.

After the break Southend's Ted Smith saved well from a Jamie Proctor header and palmed over an excellent Spearing free-kick, while Ryan Leonard saved Smith after the goalkeeper made a mistake from a Dean Moxey long throw.

Southend had a chance to win it 18 minutes from full-time, but David Mooney's attempt was stopped by Mark Howard after he cut out a weak back-pass from David Wheater.

The visitors had manager Phil Brown sent to the stands three minutes from the end for reacting angrily after appealing for a foul on Leonard.
