WANDERERS look to sign off for the international break with a home win that could take them into fourth place in the table.

Ian Evatt's side moved fifth with victory at MK Dons in midweek but come up against recently relegated Peterborough United, who are widely tipped to make a serious bid to return to the Championship at the first time of asking.


Wanderers have Jon Dadi Bodvarsson back available after a hamstring injury and picked up no new injury problems after their game in midweek.

Lloyd Isgrove is still recovering from a foot problem but Ian Evatt should otherwise have a full squad from whcih to select.


Grant McCann's Peterborough United dropped out of the Championship last season after finishing in 22nd position but have retained the vast majority of their squad and are considered one of the favourites for promotion.

Jamaica international Jonson Clarke-Harris has hit 45 goals in the past two seasons and forms a formidable front line alongside Jack Marriott.

Peterborough have put more crosses into the penalty box than any other side in League One and also have the most possession regains in the attacking third of the pitch.


In 12 previous meetings with Posh, Wanderers have managed seven wins, one draw and four defeats.

Peterborough United have never won in Bolton having played here on six occasions, the last being in 2017 when goals from Jem Karacan, David Wheater and Adam Le Fondre sealed automatic promotion for Phil Parkinson's side.

The Bolton Wanderers Supporters’ Trust will be laying a wreath outside the Remembrance window ahead of the game and encourage other fans to visit and lay any tributes of their own, as well as joining in applause in the 70th minute of the match in acknowledgement of The Queen’s reign.

Supporters are asked to arrive at the ground early – and please be seated by 2.50pm – and music played before the match will be reflective of the national mood.

A picture of The Queen will be displayed on the big screen and LED boards around the pitch will also reflect the dates of her life.

Before kick-off, and with the players of both teams standing around the centre circle, club chaplain Phil Mason will lead a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II before a minute’s silence and prayers.

The national anthem ‘God Save The King’ will then be sung, led by international opera singer Sean Ruane and accompanied by members of the Bolton-based Lancashire Artillery Volunteers Band, under the direction of Sgt Swales.

Players, coaching staff and match officials will all wear black armbands and a commemorative matchday programme to mark the day and the life and service of Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II will be available to buy.
