The fixture list is out and boy, are there some tasty dates for Bolton fans to look ahead to. The Bolton faithful will hear plenty of "Judas" chants directed at Owen Coyle on opening day and while the obvious exciting clashes are there, we're looking forward to quite a few others.
Hit the jump to see the dates that we're champing at the bit for:
Saturday, August 18 - Burnley Away
Owen Coyle returns to the club that he brought up to the Premiership. Bolton can expect a hostile environment and what will surely be a tense opening day as our Championship whites take the field for the first time in the league.
Tuesday, September 18 - Birmingham City Away
Birmingham City 2-3 Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup quarterfinal was one of the few highlights for Bolton Wanderers fans in 2011. It was Chung-Yong Lee's header at the death that took Bolton to Wembley in what was an extremely memorable and exciting result
Saturday, October 6 - Millwall Away
Millwall and hostile are two words that go hand-in-hand. Bolton did well to beat the Lions in last year's FA Cup an will look forward to another 3 points at the new Den.
Tuesday, November 6 - Leicester City Home
The Foxes are favorites to win the Championship according to a number of bookies. Here's hoping that Bolton seriously dent their title hopes with a glorious win at the Reebok.
Tuesday, January 1 - Leeds Away
What's a better way to start 2013 than taking three points from Neil Warnock's boys at Elland Road?
Saturday, May 4 - Blackpool Home
The final day of the season. If all goes well, Bolton will already be Champions of the Championship by then but if not, a win on the final day would be grand. Lifting the trophy at the Reebok would be even better.
Obviously, there are a number of exciting dates as Bolton have a long season with at least 50 games ahead of them. What are you looking forward to?
