Res: United 2 Bolton 1

crying out for a finish and Powell nodded in a rare headed goal for the former Crewe youngster. United were in full flow and Macheda completed the turnaround following another Cole assist, the top scorer taking a touch to control it before hammering past Fielding and high into the net for his sixth strike of the campaign.

The impressive Cole almost added a third when showing great poise inside a crowded box but his drive clipped the bar as the hosts certainly deserved the victory on the overall balance of play.

United: Johnstone; Veseli, M.Keane, Fornasier, McGinty; Cole, Thorpe, Tunnicliffe, Powell, Lingard; Macheda. Subs not used: Januzaj, Sutherland, Blackett, James, Barmby.
