Man Utd's Evra ready for Bolton hammering

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra is ready for his physical showdown with Bolton Wanderers striker Kevin Davies tonight.

Evra got a kicking from him when the sides met last November - and is expecting more of the same in this evening's clash at Old Trafford.

The Frenchman recalled: "I had more bad tackles in that game than I have in my ENTIRE career.

"His first tackle on me should have been a red card.

"It was the same last year. When Davies kicked me, I said to him 'Why do you tackle like that?' And he said 'It's because I don't like you!'

Trotters boss Gary Megson has called on hardman Davies to get stuck in again.

Megson said: "Kevin is a good player.

"He can cause any team problems and I want us to get back to that in-your-face attitude you normally associate with this club.

"We needed that fighting spirit against Wigan at the weekend and didn't get it.

"But I want to see it back again at Old Trafford and in the eight games we have to play after that."
