    FT: Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    Kalvin Phillips

    But that otherwise concludes our coverage of the opening weekend of the Championship season.

    Many thanks for joining us, we'll see you soon.

  2. What's coming up...

    FT: Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    Famara Diedhio

    I suppose you've all got the taste back for it now, haven't you?

    The bad news is you've now got to wait until next Saturday for your next dose of EFL joy, with 11 Championship matches next Saturday, including a tasty looking contest between Middlesbrough and Sheffield United.

    The marginally better news is that there is, at least, some EFL Cup to get your teeth stuck into during the week - and we'll have reports on every single tie right here on the BBC Sport website and app.

  3. 'Leeds will get better'

    FT: Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker on BBC Radio Leeds

    "I think this team will get better.

    "We came here looking to win the game and that's why we got three goals.

    "The goals we conceded can be ironed out, they came down to communication problems. Attitude wise I can't fault any of them.

    "I think both teams learned a lot about themselves today."

  6. FULL-TIME

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    At last the final whistle is indeed blown and Leeds United have started their 2017-17 Championship campaign with a victory.

  7. Post update

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    There's warm applause for Josh Vela, who's stretchered from the field. Bolton have used up their three substitutions so there'll be no replacement.

  8. Post update

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    The stretcher is on for Josh Vela now, who looks in a serious amount of discomfort.

    The daft thing here is that you'd have thought as soon as the ball is back in play the referee will blow the final whistle.

  9. Post update

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    Oh my, and surely Leeds should've just scored a fourth on the counter attack!

    They certainly would've done but for a fabulous goal-saving challenge by Andrew Taylor on Chris Wood.

    The four minutes of added time is up, but Josh Vela is down and receiving some treatment.

  10. Post update

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    But Gary Madine's snap-shot after another long ball into the area is straight into the arms of the goalkeeper and that could well be that.

  11. Post update

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    Kemar Roofe, slightly bizarrely, attempts an optimistic shot from distance when Leeds were in complete control.

    Now Bolton are back on the attack...

  12. YELLOW CARD

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    But the team in black have the ball back in their possession - and Will Buckley is shown a yellow card for a poor challenge on the far side.

  13. Four minutes of injury time

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    Four minutes for Bolton to rescue a point.

  14. Post update

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    Hadi Sacko then tries to relieve some of the pressure for Leeds, but is crowded out and Bolton have the goal kick.

    We're into the final couple of minutes.

  15. Post update

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    Are we set for a grandstand finish? Maybe, just maybe. Bolton have stepped it up a notch and are launching the ball forward.

  16. SUBSTITUTION

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    Adam Armstrong is on for his Bolton debut, replacing Stephen Darby.

    Meanwhile, Hadi Sacko is on for Egjan Alioski for Leeds.

  17. Post update

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    Leeds continue to manage the game pretty well, keeping the ball and keeping Bolton pinned into their own half. The home fans are becoming frustrated.

  18. Post update

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    But, after forcing a second corner, Pablo Hernandez's set-piece drifts straight out of play. Not his finest work.

  19. Post update

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    If anything, Leeds are now just starting the more likely to score the next goal again, as Pablo Hernandez forces a corner down the right.

    Can Bolton find a second wind?

  20. Post update

    Bolton 2-3 Leeds

    Some really nice play from former Bristol City full-back Luke Ayling almost sets up another Leeds chance, but his cross is plucked out of the air by Mark Howard.

    We're nearly into the final quarter of an hour.
