ARE you up for the cup? Well, you will be after listening to this week’s episode of The Buff.

Marc and Henry return for another hour (and a bit) of Bolton Wanderers headlines, analysis and general gossip to get you in the mood for this week’s football feast.

Ian Evatt’s side face Solihull Moors in the FA Cup first round, then face a trip to Shrewsbury Town in the league on Tuesday as they look to extend a three-game winning run.

The Bolton boss has NEVER won a game in the competition, so we assess whether he can break his duck this Saturday.

As ever, we read your emails – from reminiscing over reserve team football to swapping bodies with David Wheater on a promotion bender. You’ll have to listen for that to make sense.

And our popular new segment, Who Are You? Is back with the letter C, bringing you some mind-expanding facts on players you might have forgotten played for Bolton. This week we have some crackers, too!

First not last, it's the Buff Podcast!
