THE play-off semi-finals are upon us – and The Bolton News wants to make sure you are just as match-ready as Ian Evatt and his players.

Inside today’s print version of the paper is a 16-page souvenir pull-out with exclusive interviews, analysis and opinion on Wanderers’ season so far, and the upcoming two-legged game against Barnsley.

There are also three pages of preview on the game itself, the latest team news, plus the manager’s rallying call to his squad to make their opportunity count.

If you can’t get to a newsagent then why not read the whole paper online by becoming a subscriber?

For £5 you get five months of unlimited articles, video, podcasts and lots of other Wanderers content that you simply can’t get anywhere else.

We’ll be at the game tonight with our free Matchday Live service and be bringing you Evatt’s view straight after the game along with regular favourites like player ratings, opposition reaction and the Buff Podcast.
