Wanderers have a chance to quickly bounce back from their defeat at Blackpool when they head to Wigan.

Ian Evatt’s men were beaten 4-1 at Bloomfield Road despite taking the lead through George Thomason’s strike. Skipper Ricardo Santos was sent off during the second half after he was judged to have fouled Kyle Joseph in the box.

The Whites remain third in the League One table, behind second-place Derby on goal difference heading into the business end of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Wigan drew 1-1 against Cheltenham at the weekend, with Liverpool loanee Luke Chambers cancelling out Matty Taylor’s opener.

The Latics, who started the campaign with an eight-point deduction, now find themselves 13rd in the table.

When and where is the game being played?

The fixture takes place at the DW Stadium on Tuesday, February 27 (7.45pm).

The points were shared when Bolton last headed to Wigan in April 2022, with Jon Dadi Bodvarsson cancelling out James McClean’s opener.
