Having not scored in three games and having not won in seven, Bolton Wanderers will be looking to get back on track this weekend against Oxford United at the Macron. Oxford, who were promoted from League Two last season, are four points off Bolton in 16th place. This will be the first time the two teams have played each other since the 1998/1999 season, when both games ended in draws.
