Bolton Wanderers will look to get back to winning ways when promotion-chasing Wycombe visit the UniBol on Saturday.

From likely line-ups, to key men and the referee, all you need to know ahead of the game can be found below.


Wanderers (4-3-3): Matthews, Emmanuel, Nsiala, Edwards, Fleming, Lowe, L Murphy, Hamilton, Politic, D Murphy, O’Grady.

Wycombe (4-3-3): Allsop, McCarthy, Stewart, Jombati, Jacobson, Pattison, Gape, Freeman, Wheeler, Samuel, Parker.


Gareth Ainsworth ­- The longest-serving manager in the EFL and Premier League at nearly seven-and-a-half years, Ainsworth led Wycombe out of League Two and to a rather improbable promotion push, which began with a 2-0 victory against Bolton on the opening day of the season. Momentum has stalled recently with three wins in 11.

At the back: Anthony Stewart – Centre-back who has been with the Chairboys for most of their journey up the league. Solid and quick.

In the middle: Dominic Gape – Been a regular at the heart of the Wycombe midfield for a few years now and knits things together well.

Up front: Adebayo Akinfenwa – Hulking striker who has become a cult figure in football but proved a handful on the opening day of the season.


“Hopefully I’ll be one of those good managers who get up to 500 or 600 games! But I’m proud of my time here. I think we have put the club back on the map.

“I’ve seen shirts in the town centre, I’ve seen stuff in the local press, I’ve seen stuff in shop windows that I never saw 10 years ago, maybe even 25 years ago when there was a big hoo-ha about the club getting into the Football League.” – Gareth Ainsworth on reaching 400 games in charge of Wycombe

Graham Salisbury – Lancashire referee who has given out 77 yellow cards and one red in his 25 games this season. His last encounter with Wanderers came six years ago in a 1-0 home defeat to Burnley in the Championship.


There has only been one competitive fixture between the two clubs, which ended in a 2-0 win for Wycombe on the opening day of this season at Adams Park. Paul Smyth and Fred Onyedimna scored the goals.

Wycombe have lost their last five games away from Adams Park, last picking up a point in a goalless draw with Ipswich on November 26.

Wanderers have picked up more points (19) at home this season than Southend, Tranmere and Rochdale.


Since 1678 the people of Wycombe have ceremonially weighed their mayor before and after their term of service. The Town Crier announces after the second weigh whether they have gained or lost weight.
