Bolton Wanderers are in midweek action when they make the short journey to take on Greater Manchester rivals Salford City.

The Whites travel to the Peninsula Stadium to take on the Ammies for a 7pm kick-off.

The clash had originally been due to take place in early February, but was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch on that occasion and rearranged.

Wanderers take on a Salford side now on their third manager of the season in the form of Gary Bowyer, who has taken over from Richie Wellens, who in turn replaced Graham Alexander earlier in the campaign.

The Ammies are ninth in the table heading into the encounter, three points from the play-offs and have won their last two games in succession.

Wanderers are currently in the top three after coming from behind to beat Harrogate Town over the weekend and are five points from the division's summit.

Ahead of the away day, Wanderers manager Ian Evatt will be speaking to the media at a pre-match press conference held via Zoom.
