PROPER football is back, and The Buff is making sure you are completely prepared for the trip to Reading.

We go through all the headlines from The Bolton News during the international break, including the great squad numbers debate and whether Dion Charles can smash the 20-goal barrier once again.

Marc and Henry check in with The Buff’s Fantasy Football League and read out some of your emails – from an update on the digital revamp to a Wanderers version of Quantum Leap.

And of course we look ahead to this weekend’s game, which pitches Bolton against crisis club Reading. Marc chats to James Earnshaw of the Reading Chronicle to catch up on exactly what is going wrong down in Berkshire, and we ask what it will mean for Ian Evatt and his side as they look to return to the top of the table.
