Wolves stretched their lead at the top of the Championship to seven points as they comfortably beat lowly Bolton.Defender Willy Boly’s header into the bottom left corner from Barry Douglas’ inswinging corner set the hosts on their way to a fifth straight win.Top scorer Leo Bonatini headed a second for a 2-0 half-time lead before Ivan Cavaleiro’s 62nd-minute penalty.

Bolton’s Will Buckley got one back but Cavaleiro’s second and a clinching fifth for Diogo Jota wrapped it up.Relive Saturday’s EFL actionWolves’ best home win of the season, surpassing Tuesday’s 4-1 win over Leeds, sent Bolton to the bottom of the Championship table, thanks to rejuvenated Sunderland’s victory at Burton Albion.The match was made further memorable by a 44th-minute touchline incident that ended with opposing bosses Nuno Espirito Santo and Phil Parkinson both being sent to the stand.The home bench reacted furiously to a challenge by former Wolves loan man David Wheater on Jota, which sparked a reaction from their Bolton counterparts as the two management groups clashed.

Once the dust had settled, referee Keith Stroud dismissed Parkinson, who was also sent off earlier this season against Sheffield Wednesday, and Wolves head coach Nuno joined him.After falling behind from another productive corner by Wolves dead-ball specialist Douglas, Bolton’s task was made all the harder when keeper Alnwick was at fault for the second goal.He raced to the right-hand edge of his area to try to cut out a long through-ball from Ruben Neves but was beaten to it by Jota, who lifted the ball over him, allowing Bonatini to nip in above two Bolton defenders and head in his 11th goal of season from close range.Cavaleiro then made no mistake from the spot after Romain Saiss had been fouled by Antonee Robinson, before Buckley briefly raised Bolton’s hopes when he converted a pass from Gary Madine with a low shot under goalkeeper John Ruddy.Cavaleiro was then fed a neat pass from substitute Helder Costa before tricking his way to the edge of the area to blast into the roof of the net. And there was still time for a fifth goal for the first time since February 2015 when Ruddy’s long clearance was chased down by Jota, whose powerful shot beat Alnwick.Wolves head coach Nuno Esprito Santo:”It is something that happens every week in football. There is a tackle. I think it is tough, and I reacted to it. There is an argument. Nothing more than that. The referee told us to go.”Both of us were doing our jobs the best way we can for our teams. The ref spoke with us. We were totally calm.”We have to work the same every day. We don’t look where we are in the table. It doesn’t mean anything at this moment.”Bolton boss Phil Parkinson:”They are going to win the league by 10 points. I will say that now.”We gave some poor goals away against a side who I have to say are by far the best team in the Championship. “We have to get back to being tight and being hard to beat.”Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsWolves21Ruddy5Bennett16Coady15Boly2Doherty27Saiss8NevesBooked at 64mins3DouglasSubstituted forVinagreat 89’minutes7CavaleiroSubstituted forN’Diayeat 85’minutes33BonatiniSubstituted forCostaat 72’minutes18JotaBooked at 58minsSubstitutes4N’Diaye6Batth17Costa19Price26Enobakhare29Vinagre31NorrisBolton13Alnwick2Little31WheaterBooked at 43mins5Beevers15Robinson21PratleySubstituted forLe Fondreat 78’minutes24Henry10AmeobiBooked at 45minsSubstituted forNooneat 63’minutes6Vela20ArmstrongSubstituted forBuckleyat 63’minutes14MadineSubstitutes9Le Fondre11Buckley12Noone16Cullen23Darby32Burke33HowardReferee:Keith StroudAttendance:27,894Match StatsHome TeamWolvesAway TeamBoltonPossessionHome62%Away38%ShotsHome15Away11Shots on TargetHome8Away5CornersHome7Away4FoulsHome17Away12Live TextPosted at Match ends, Wolverhampton Wanderers 5, Bolton Wanderers 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+4′ Second Half ends, Wolverhampton Wanderers 5, Bolton Wanderers 1.Posted at 90’+2′ Attempt missed.
