Bolton, England - Bolton kept itself in the hunt for a European place on Sunday with a 2-0 win over Everton at the Reebok Stadium.

Gary Cahill's goal in the 10th minute handed Wanderers the lead, and Daniel Sturridge continued his good run of form with his third goal in as many games in the 67th.

Bolton had lost three of its last four matches prior to Sunday's contest, but the win leaves the club in eighth place, three points back of sixth-place Liverpool.

Stuart Holden helped set up the opener with a free kick that he whipped into the box from the left. Cahill got on the other end of the cross and nodded it toward the net, with the ball taking a deflection off of Everton's John Heitinga before beating goalkeeper Tim Howard.

Everton should have been level seven minutes later when Tim Cahill volleyed a cross from Leighton Baines past the upper corner of the net from six yards, but the Toffees struggled the rest of the game to create chances and Bolton secured the win in the 67th minute.

Chung-Yong Lee flicked a header into the path of Sturridge and he slammed the ball into the net from close range, handing Everton its second loss in six contests.
