Bolton win crucial away game in Birmingham

9:48 am on 25 April 2012

Bolton Wanderers have won 2-1 at Aston Villa in a crucial game in the battle to avoid relegation from the English Premier League football competition.

Bolton move above Blackburn to 18th place but remain in the drop zone, one point behind Wigan with four games to play.

However Trotters fans can look on the bright side - Bolton's win was their sixth Premier League away win this season and the only Premier League team to be relegated while picking up at least six wins on the road were Crystal Palace in 1997/1998.

Villa fans will be worried - their side's just three points from the relegation zone now in 15th.
