Bolton Wanderers face the tough task of home tie against Steve Evans' Leeds United, should they manage to negotiate a tricky replay against non-league Eastleigh FC.

The game, set to take place on the weekend of January 30th, comes as a welcome distraction for Neil Lennon, as the perils of life at the bottom of the Championship continue to take their toll on the Northern Irishman and his side.

The replay against Eastleigh is yet to have a date set, although the only non-league side left in the competition will fancy their chances against our struggling Wanderers' side. The latter will be happy to be on home soil after Saturday's game on an abysmal pitch.

Should Bolton beat Eastleigh, the prospect of Leeds could be a difficult one. Steve Evans' side haven't lost since November 28th and find themselves 13th in the Championship with one eye on the play-offs. Three consecutive league draws against Nottingham Forest, Derby and MK Dons will give them a solid base to build on in the coming weeks.

How will Wanderers fare against Eastleigh in the next couple of weeks? Let us know in the comments below.
