    • 2010 December 29, Chris Whyatt, “Chelsea 1 - 0 Bolton”, BBC:
      With the hosts not able to find their passes - everything that went forward was too heavy or too short - Terry once again had to come to his side's rescue after Davies had brilliantly nodded into the path of Elmander, who followed up swiftly with a deflected shot.
