Reading were unchanged in their starting XI, with The Trotters unable to play Eidur Gudjohnsen- the veteran striker without international clearance despite travelling with his new side.
The first half struggled to kick into gear for both teams- the returning Matt Mills playing a good game for the visitors. The Royals had a vibrant final few minutes, with the best chance coming as Jake Cooper's header was blocked by Glenn Murray, and then fired over by the loanee-forward.
The second-half began in the same mode, with Reading squandering chances through Michael Hector. Tim Ream had Bolton's best chance saved by Adam Federici from a narrow angle, but in truth The Royals never looked bad enough to lose this.
A score-less draw fizzled out and a point will be divvied out to both sides, with Reading staying 14th in the Championship- Botlon rise to 17th.
