Bolton Wanderers will be looking to get back to winning ways this weekend against MK Dons at the Macron Stadium. Last Saturday's 1-1 draw against Southend United extended the Whites' unbeaten run to six games, and Bolton will hope to make it seven against a struggling MK Dons side. MK, who were relegated from the Championship alongside Wanderers last season, have lost their last two games and are currently 14th in the table.

Team News

Bolton Wanderers

Wanderers' top goalscorer Gary will miss the game with a groin injury, whilst Liam Trotter is also a doubt. Jamie Proctor and Sammy Ameobi could both start in their place.

Zach Clough, Max Clayton and Derik Osede still remained sidelined, but could return to first team action in the next couple of weeks.

MK Dons

Club record signing Kieran Agard could return to the starting line-up after coming back from injury last week. Deadline day signing Jack Hendry could also come into contention for a place in the first XI.

Scott Wootton remains the only long term absentee for MK, after suffering a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament at the end of last month.

What's been Said

League One Manager of the Month Phil Parkinson - "There is a real determination in the camp to keep this run going. We've got to make sure that we give everything that we've got.

MK Dons will have been disappointed not to stay up last year. They've been strong at this level for a number of years.

They've got some dangerous players but so are we. We'll make sure we're aware of their strengths, but also their weaknesses."

Match Odds

Bolton Wanderers 1/1

Draw 5/2

MK Dons 13/5

Match Prediction

I think Wanderers will keep this fantastic run going against an MK Dons side struggling for form. I'll go with Bolton Wanderers 3-1 MK Dons.
