Man­chester Uni­ted 3 Bol­ton Wan­derers 0, Old Traf­ford, Eng­lish Foot­ball Lea­gue Sec­ond Di­vi­sion, Sep­tember 25, 1974. Sec­ond Di­vi­sion lead­ers Man­chester Uni­ted de­feated Bol­ton Wan­derers 3-0 at ho­me cour­tesy of a goal each from Lou Ma­cari and Stew­art Hou­s­ton, plus an own goal by Don Mc­Al­lister.

Sec­ond Di­vi­sion lead­ers Man­chester Uni­ted had com­fort­ably beaten Bris­tol Rov­ers 2-0 at Old Traf­ford in their pre­vi­ous fix­ture, where­as lowly pla­ced Bol­ton Wan­derers had ma­naged a cred­it­able goal­less draw ag­ainst Sun­der­land at Roker Park. The Reds took the up­per hand ag­ainst The Trot­ters thanks to a vol­ley from mid­fielder Lou Ma­cari in the 40th min­ute of the mid­week en­counter and just two min­utes la­ter Stew­art Hou­s­ton sco­red one of his rare goals when the de­fender sent a pile diver of an ef­fort pa­st away goal­keeper Bar­ry Sid­dal and in­to the back of the net. Bol­ton also had their mo­ments, but the mat­ch was ef­fect­ively put bey­ond their reach as Wan­derers stop­per Don Mc­Al­lister sent the ball in­to his own onion bag five min­utes pa­st the hour ma­rk.
