LONDON, Sept. 30 (Xinhua) -- Liverpool suffered their third consecutive away league defeat on Saturday when they lost to Bolton 2-0.

The host went ahead in the 30th minute with a disputed goal after Jose Reina was wrongfully penalized for handball.

Playing his 750th league game, Gary Speed inflicted maximum punishment on Liverpool as he arrowed in a free-kick in the 51st minute.

Bolton extended their lead when Ivan Campo thumped a header against the bar and over the line from Kevin Davies' cross early in the second half.

Liverpool struggled on their league travels in Benitez's first season in charge and having picked up just one point away from home during this campaign they are again faltering outside of Anfield.

Bolton might have been fortunate with that first goal, but once they were ahead the way they defended suggested they were never going to relinquish their lead.

Both goalscorers typified that grit as they both made important defensive interventions as Liverpool threatened. Enditem
