Last time out, they were beaten 2-0 away at Peterborough, in a game that saw Reece James receive a straight red card in the first half.

Meanwhile, Bolton have had a somewhat surprisingly strong start to their sophomore season in League One. They’re unbeaten so far, picking up wins over Wycombe Wanderers and Morecambe.

When will the game kick off?

The game is set to kick off at 3pm on August 20, with the team line ups being announced an hour prior to this at 2pm.

Radio coverage is expected to start at around 2pm, also.

What channel is it on?

As the game will be taking place at 3pm on a Saturday, it will not be broadcast live on TV - however, that doesn’t mean you can’t watch it live.
