Footymad preview History of the Manchester United v Bolton Wanderers fixture

Bolton Wanderers face a trip to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The The Trotters will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in October 2009, the Red Devils carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Premier League match.
