History of the Reading v Bolton Wanderers fixture

Bolton Wdrs. face a trip to Reading at Madejski Stadium 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 lose 7 and win only 2 of the 11 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in December 2006, the Royals carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Premiership match.
