IAN Evatt has named his starting XI for Wanderers’ League One clash with Wigan Athletic at the UniBol.

The Whites enter the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough last weekend.

The result saw Evatt's men slip to eighth in the league table, having taken 18 points from their opening 12 fixtures.

Meanwhile, the Latics sit in third place after winning seven of their opening 10 matches.

Wanderers have faced Wigan 47 times in their history, with a record of 15 wins, 13 draws and 17 defeats.

The Whites’ last win in the fixture came in January 2015 in the FA Cup, with Zach Clough scoring the decisive goal.

Leam Richardson’s men won on penalties when the sides met in the Carabao Cup earlier in the season following a goalless draw at the DW Stadium.

Here’s how the sides line-up.

Bolton: Dixon, Brockbank, Santos, Johnston, Gordon, Williams, Sheehan, Bakayoko, Sarcevic, Afolayan, Doyle

Subs: Gilks, Delfouneso, Aimson, Isgrove, Kachunga, Thomason, Baptiste

Wigan: Amos, Power, Whatmough, Watts, Darikwa, Naylor, Cousins, Lang, Keane, McClean, Wyke

Subs: Jones, Tilt, Pearce, Jones, Massey, Edwards, Humphrys
