Match Preview

Coyle's goalkeeping conundrum Owen Coyle must decide whether to recall Jussi Jaaskelainen for Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash with Manchester United at the Reebok Stadium. Bolton boss Coyle has been impressed by the form of Adam Bogdan during Jaaskelainen's suspension, although it would be a major surprise if the Finn was not recalled to face Sir Alex Ferguson's men. Coyle is expected to revert to a full-strength line-up having made eight changes for the midweek Carling Cup defeat at Burnley - with Kevin Davies back from his ban to spearhead the Trotters attack. However, Gary Cahill serves the final game of a three-match suspension. Coyle is not expecting the refereeing decisions that he is convinced have gone against Bolton this season to be balanced out any time soon. Jussi Jaaskelainen and Kevin Davies return from suspension against Manchester United tomorrow, while Gary Cahill misses out as he serves the final game of a three-match ban incurred for his dismissal at Arsenal a fortnight ago. Coyle is still annoyed at that one, believing Cahill's tackle on Marouane Chamakh only warranted a yellow, one of a string of decisions his side have had to overcome. However, do not mention to the Scot that these things even themselves up over the course of a season. "That statement is the biggest load of nonsense I ever heard," countered Coyle. "We are only five games into the season and six huge decisions have gone against us. "We were probably fortunate to get a free-kick 30 yards out against Birmingham that Robbie Blake scored from but that is one. "Gary Cahill was sent off at Arsenal when everybody knows it was a yellow card, there have been clear penalties for us that have not been given, ones given against us that never should have been. "But we will get on with it with a smile on our face." Sir Alex Ferguson is expected to ring the changes once more for Manchester United. The United boss selected a completely different starting line-up for the midweek Carling Cup triumph over Scunthorpe, which he missed to go on a Champions League scouting mission in Valencia, and it would be no surprise if only Rio Ferdinand kept his place at the Reebok Stadium. Ferguson has reported an encouraging return to training for Owen Hargreaves after his knee problems, although the England star is not under consideration for Sunday's game and Michael Carrick (Achilles) is still sidelined. In addition to Dimitar Berbatov's hat-trick last week, the United boss needs to take into account Michael Owen's two goals at Scunthorpe on Wednesday, plus the formidable presence of Wayne Rooney before deciding his first starting line-up of a week that also includes a testing Champions League trip to Valencia. "It does give me a problem," said Ferguson. "I have known it was going to be a problem since the start of the season, that is why I let Danny Welbeck go to Sunderland and Mame Biram Diouf to Blackburn on loan. "The form of Dimitar Berbatov has meant that other players have taken a back seat, which is unfortunate for them because they are good players."

Match Report

Owen rescues United point Michael Owen rescued a point for Manchester United after Sir Alex Ferguson's men twice had to come from behind against Bolton in a 2-2 draw. Owen nodded home Nani's free-kick 16 minutes from time to ensure United did not join the other victims on a weekend of shock defeats. Yet it was hardly a pleasing outcome for Ferguson, who would have hoped for better once Nani levelled Zat Knight's early effort but instead saw his team fall behind again thanks to Martin Petrov. As United have now conceded nine goals in five league games and trail leaders Chelsea by three points, it was not the best of weekends for them, nor an out-of-sorts Wayne Rooney, who was replaced by Federico Macheda half an hour from the end. Saturday's results could not have worked out any better for United and the intent behind their attacking play was obvious from the first kick, but defensively they remain unconvincing. The absence of Rio Ferdinand with Wednesday's Champions League encounter with Valencia in mind was a further indication that all is not well with the England skipper. And without him, life continues to be a struggle. A late goal at Fulham, two in injury-time at Everton and a Steven Gerrard brace against Liverpool last weekend when the Reds did not have a single shot of note in open play during the entire game is not a record to be proud of. To that crime sheet can now be added Knight's back flick. The defender's third goal in as many years could not be described as conventional. But once Patrice Evra moved away from the far post he was supposed to be patrolling when Petrov curled over his corner, the target was wide enough for him to steer the ball into once he had escaped the attentions of Jonny Evans. That United would score themselves was never really in doubt such was their dominance of possession in key midfield areas. The problem was whether they would concede again in the meantime. Edwin van der Sar was forced to make a couple of vital interventions as Kevin Davies and Johan Elmander made their presence felt, with Evans not looking entirely comfortable. At the other end, United's play was incisive and both Giggs and Rooney wasted decent chances. The manner of the visitors' equaliser would have come as a disappointment to Owen Coyle. Nani deserved plenty of credit for his ambition as he set off racing towards the Bolton goal from inside his own half. However, the Trotters defence just kept inviting him to run and the Portuguese winger had got to the edge of the area before he drilled an impressive shot past Jussi Jaaskelainen. In fairness to Bolton, it was something of an aberration given how well they had done at closing down space around their penalty area and forcing United into pumping a succession of crosses into the box. It was a tactic United persevered with after the interval and eventually resulted in the substitution of an ineffective Rooney half an hour from the end. Rooney's work rate could not be faulted on his first appearance away from Old Trafford since the storm erupted over his private life. But he does not threaten at the moment and now Owen has taken his tally to three in a week, compared to one for Rooney - from the penalty spot - all season, an interesting selection dilemma looms for Ferguson in Valencia on Wednesday. Owen was not even on the pitch when Petrov put Bolton back in front, exploiting more poor defensive work to step inside Park then rocket a shot past Edwin van der Sar that flicked off John O'Shea. The introduction of Federico Macheda did result in an opening for Berbatov but it took Owen's deft near-post flick for the far corner from Nani's free-kick to bring United level. A late onslaught was expected as United hunted the winner. But it did not actually materialise, with Elmander, who had wasted an excellent chance to seal victory for Bolton before Owen scored, steering the final opportunity wide as well. endM
