Bolton Wanderers travel to Milton Keynes for the first time in their history tonight to face Championship new boys MK Dons.

Any Bolton fans travelling to the game tonight might have troubles getting to the ground, due to how far away it is from all over civilisation, but for anybody who has stayed at home, I'll be bringing you all the action.

The Dons opened their season with a resounding 4-1 away win against Rotherham United and followed that up by beating Leyton Orient 2-1 to progress in the Capital One Cup. In their last game, however, Preston North End beat them 1-0 at home.

Loveable scamp Rob Hall misses out due to the terms of his loan agreement, despite both BBC and Sky reporting that it's through injury - bizarre.

Wellington Silva didn't quite sign in time to be named in tonight's squad, likewise with Francesco Pisano. Both should make their debuts against Nottingham Forest.

Here are the teams:

MK Dons

RB Jordan Spence

CDM Darren Potter
