In the Premier League the old adage is that what makes a side is whether they can do it on a Tuesday night in Stoke. In League One, it's more the case of whether they can do it on a Wednesday night at Bristol Rovers. So, over to you Bolton Wanderers.

Bolton go into tonight's clash at the Memorial Ground in the lofty position of second in the league and boasting a 100% record, albeit having only played two games. Boss Phil Parkinson names an unchanged starting lineup, with Zach Clough stil only fit enough for a place on the bench, which means we again go with the world's narrowest midfield and two up front in the form of Gary Madine Goal Machine and Jamie Proctor.

Bristol Rovers are on an amazing 10-match home winning streak and, if they win again this evening, will smash a record that has stood since 1935. So let's hope tonight is the night for that run to end with an away victory. They make five changes, and seem to be setting up in the classic, tried and tested Championship Manager 00/01 3-5-2 Attacking formation. The only thing I know about their team is that Stuart Sinclair has the best beard in football - fact. And apparently striker Matty Taylor (no, not that one) has apparently scored a lot of goals.

We'll bring you all the action from Bristol in the Comments section below, so feel free to get involved and let us know your thoughts on all things Wanderers.
