IT’S the last weekend of the regular season and The Buff is here once more to get you all excited for the play-offs.

Wanderers head to Bristol Rovers for a last game that may (or may not) matter, and by Sunday afternoon we will all know whether the semi-final will be against Sheffield Wednesday or Barnsley. We might even know what day the game will be played on, provided there are no more unnecessary changes.

It has been a big week of headlines in The Bolton News and we have seen Conor Bradley sweep the board at the end-of-year awards.

James Trafford has confirmed he’s definitely off – and we explain why we wish him all the best.

Marc and Henry wonder what surprises are in store in Bolton’s finances this summer and what Big Sam will do at Leeds United after his surprise return to management.

We have your emails, a check up on The Buff’s Fantasy League table and, of course, the preview to beat all previews as Wanderers travel to the Memorial Stadium.

It’s first not last, and not surpassed. It’s The Buff.
