History of the Bolton Wanderers v Fulham fixture

Fulham face a trip to Bolton Wanderers at Reebok Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Cottagers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 21 and win only 8 of the 39 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2009, as the visitors ran out cosy 1 - 3 winners in a Premier League match.
