"I would like to say it’s going to be 3-2 to us, but I think it’ll be 5-2 to them. Andrew Cole will score first, I reckon. I wouldn’t put any money on it yet – I’ll see what the mood is in the dressing room just before the match."

McGuinness: Don't laugh!

TV funnyman Paddy McGuinness, famed for hit shows Phoenix Nights and Max And Paddy’s Road To Nowhere, shares his hopes and fears for United Relief...

How much are you looking forward to representing The Rivals on Saturday?
It’s a dream come true – it’s just a pity it’s at Old Trafford! No, I’m really looking forward to it. As a football fan, you don’t get the chance to play in a big stadium very often. It’ll be amazing to see it from the players’ point of view, watching the families cheering on.

So is a trip to OT a big day out for a Bolton Wanderers fan?
Yes. Although I’m one of the few Bolton fans who likes to watch United matches. I watch all the big clubs and as a fan you have to appreciate the way they play.

What will be your pre-match snack of choice?
I’ll be too nervous to eat anything! Maybe I’ll eat one of those energy bars so I look like I’m calm and sporty. But I’ll probably just go for a Twix.

What’s your score prediction?
I really would like to say it’s going to be 3-2 to us, but I think it’ll be 5-2 to them. Andrew Cole will score first, I reckon. I wouldn’t put any money on it yet though – I’ll see what the mood is in the dressing room just before the match.

Do you have a message for the United team?
