Macron Stadium

Tuesday 8th March

KO: 20:00

After Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Leeds United, Bolton return to the Macron to take on Ipswich Town. Ipswich, who are 9th in the Championship table, will look to make it three wins in a row to help their Play-Off push, while Bolton will be looking to avoid a fourth defeat in a row for the first time this season.

The match will also mark the 70th anniversary since the Burnden Park disaster, when 33 Bolton fans sadly lost their lives. Bolton will wear their Macron-manufactured commemorative kit, which thanks to ROK Mobile does not carry any sponsorship branding as a mark of respect for those who died in the disaster.

There will also be a special commemorative matchday programme produced for the game, whilst in the run up to kick off Joanna Forest will sing Abide With Me ahead of a period of silence.
