History of the Manchester City v Bolton Wanderers fixture

Man. City prepare to entertain Bolton Wanderers at City of Manchester Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Sky Blues are clearly on top, winning 55.56% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at City of Manchester Stadium was less than a year ago, in December 2006, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a Premiership match.
