Reds ready for physical battle


Sir Alex Ferguson has told his players to be ready for another physical onslaught by Bolton tonight. The Manchester United boss was sent to the stands - and then banned from the touchline for two games - for losing the plot when Kevin Davies escaped unpunished for two heavy challenges on United defender Patrice Evra earlier in the season. The Red Devils can go three points clear at the top of the table with a victory over relegation-threatened Bolton at Old Trafford tonight. And Fergie warned: "Bolton have got Kevin Davies up front - and he'll do everything he possibly can to unsettle us."

The Trotters will have to do without skipper Kevin Nolan on Wednesday night after he was ruled out by a back injury.

In other news, the Daily Star claims former Reds' skipper Roy Keane is after ex-United striker Diego Forlan.

Dimitar Berbatov's representative would want to discuss a move away from White Hart Lane for the Tottenham striker should an offer come in this summer, according to the Daily Mail. Berbatov has been heavily linked with a switch to Old Trafford over the last few months.
