The English football side Manchester United faces more injury woes with manager Alex Ferguson saying defenders Chris Smalling and Phil Jones would undergo late fitness tests before the weekend's Premier League match at home to Bolton Wanderers.

The champions' season has been disrupted by a steady stream of injuries.

United will be seeking to close the gap on leaders Manchester City, who are three points clear at the top, when they host third-from-bottom Bolton overnight.
