United aiming for a new record at Wolves

Wolverhampton Wanderers host Manchester United on the back of an away defeat to Bolton on Tuesday when a disastrous Ronald Zubar back pass allowed Daniel Sturridge to steal a 93rd minute winner at the Reebok Stadium. That result left Mick McCarthy’s men three points adrift at the bottom of the Barclays Premier League, in the starkest contrast to United who are now five points clear at the right end of the table. Sir Alex Ferguson’s current side have matched the 1999 Treble winners’ run of 29 league games without defeat and will fancy making it 30 having won all six clashes with Wolves since losing 1-0 at Molineux in 2004. Both clubs were then in the same positions they are now – top and bottom.
