History of the Watford v Bolton Wanderers fixture

Bolton Wdrs. face a trip to Watford at Vicarage Road 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 taste defeat on 7 occasions, and draw 4, from the 12 games played.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in January 2006, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 3 winners in a F.A. Cup match.
