VOTE: Who are Bolton Wanderers' biggest local rivals?

The Bolton News: Who are Bolton Wanderers' biggest local rivals? Who are Bolton Wanderers' biggest local rivals?

THIS Saturday sees Wanderers host Blackburn Rovers at the Reebok – with Dougie Freedman’s side gunning for revenge after a 4-1 humiliation at Ewood Park earlier this season.

Local passions always run deep in this game, but are Rovers really the side that Wanderers supporters most want to beat?

Geographically, the towns of Blackburn, Bury and Wigan surround Bolton, Burnley have emerged as a rival in recent seasons, particularly since Owen Coyle's controversial move, while the spectre of Manchester United also hangs over us from the Premier League, even if Wanderers don't get to play them very often these days.

But which of these five local teams matters the most?

You have until 4pm today to vote, and you can also tell us what you think in the comments below, or join the debate on our new Bolton Wanderers news Facebook page.

Bolton fans are desperate to have a rival but they are so insignificant to the local teams that nobody will take them on. Try Bury. It's your best bet.

Haha! The fact you have to vote to decide who your local rival is says it all. Nobody cares about you! Personally I reckon it should be Wigan
