The points and the performance against Blackburn alleviated pressure on Roy Hodgson last weekend but one win is not a cure-all. A trip to Bolton, unbeaten in four league games at home this season, represents a truer test of Liverpool's improvement. The visitors have won just one of their last 13 away league games while Hodgson's individual record is even worse. He has not presided over a league win away from home since Fulham beat Portsmouth on the opening day of last season. Johan Elmander is in rich form for Owen Coyle's side, although all five of his goals have come on Bolton's travels. Andy Hunter
