Aston Villa face a trip to Bolton Wanderers at Reebok Stadium on Sunday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Villans will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 40 and win only 18 of the 74 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in December 2005, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Premiership match.
