The Bolton Wanderers face Wigan Athletic this weekend in a bid to score three points when both sides lock the horns in League One.

The Wanderers are currently in eighth place in League One, while the Latics are third and just one point off the top spot ahead of the game at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Bolton last beat Wigan in early 2015 in the FA Cup third round thanks to a strike from Zach Clough.

Three goals in 11 minutes from Max Clayton, Craig Davies and Lee Chung-Yong from the penalty spot gave the Wanderers three points at home.
