Recent respective form guides
Bolton Wanderers's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Trotters have scored 4, a worringly large 7 have been leaked at the other end.
The away form of Man. Utd. however, is much more impressive, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. Just 5 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 1 have been let in at the wrong end.
Bolton Wdrs. see themselves just below half way in the Barclays Premier League, showing a record of 23 points from their 21 games played so far, Man. Utd. sit in a healthy 2nd in the league, and have picked up 44 points from their 20 games.
