The very best of luck to the team, manager and all the fans that made the long trip. Will be rooting for you. UTIAD

2:42pm

Midfielder Harry Arter has limped off from the warm-up here... Doesn't look good.

2:41pm

View from the dugout: Eddie Howe

“I have watched their past two games and they performed very well. They were unfortunate not to get any points from those two games and that is the type of division it is. From the performances I have seen, I would say they are in a false position.

“They have some very good individuals and a good manager. They have an experienced squad and a lot of players have played in the Premier League.

"At the start of the season, Bolton would have hoped to be competing for the top six but, for whatever reason, it hasn’t quite worked out for them.

2:33pm

Only about 20 mins from kick-off but the ground here at the Reebok is virtually empty...
