Defender Knight sets Bolton goalscoring target

Zat Knight is intent on finding the back of the net more often after scoring for only the third time in three years when he put the Trotters in front against Manchester United. "I should score more often," said the 30-year-old. "It is my downfall really.

"With my size, I can create problems inside the penalty area.

"I was winding the boys up beforehand, saying I was going to score. But I feel as though I am going to do that every week.

"Hopefully I can start that now. I have set myself a little goal of getting five or six this season.

"That is my first. Hopefully I will get more."

Knight's main job is at the back, which has been going rather well so far this term despite changing central defensive partners at regular intervals.

"We felt Berbatov was going to be lively so we tried to put a lot of pressure on him as soon as he got the ball and clamp him down," said Knight.

"And although we know Wayne Rooney has not hit the form everyone wants you have to give our defenders credit for keeping it that way.

"He can be on form next week."
