Sierra Leone-born Amadou Bakayoko took his tally to nine goals of the season as Bolton Wanderers returned to winning ways with an emphatic 4-0 Sky Bet League One victory over AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

As a result, the Whites moved up to tenth in their Sky Bet League One standings.

Bakakoyo accounted for his ninth, top scorer Dapo Afolayan netted his 13th of the season and Dion Charles, his sixth goal in eight games.

Iceland international Bodvarsson headed in Aaron Morley’s 36th-minute corner to give the Trotters the lead.

The visitors have never beaten Bolton and that record continued as Ian Evatt’s side struck twice in 11 second-half minutes to revive their outside play-off ambitions.

Afolayan virtually walked the ball into an empty net after Charles prodded the ball through.

Charles sealed Bolton’s seventh win in nine games with a right-footed finish after 67 minutes before Bakayoko headed in Marlon Fossey’s cross to complete the rout three minutes from time.
