A Battle in Buckinghamshire, the Bolon Bout, or the War of the Wanderers.

Whatever you want to call it, this weekend’s fixture between Wycombe Wanderers and Bolton Wanderers is probably the game of the weekend in League One.

Two teams on a great run of form, two sides hoping for promotion, and two managers who are getting the best out of their players at what is a critical part of the season.

It’s Wycombe vs Bolton, and here is everything you need to know.

Current Form and Background on Bolton

This will be the Trotters’ third visit to Adams Park, a stadium where they have yet to score a goal in.

However, with the club smashing in 18 strikes in their last seven games, which includes two back-to-back 5-0 victories, they will arrive to South Buckinghamshire full of confidence.

Since the turn of the year, Ian Evatt’s side have picked up 22 points from a possible 27, whilst keeping seven clean sheets in their last nine games.

Bolton have tasted defeat just three times in the league since October, and currently sit in third, just six points off the automatic promotion places.

However, they have played two games more than Sheffield Wednesday who currently sit in second.

Additionally, their tally of 23 goals conceded in the league this season is the second best in the division.

The side who have shipped in the least amount of goals are Sheffield Wednesday, who have let in just 20.

Current Form and Background on Wycombe

Just like their opponents, Wycombe are also enjoying a fine run of form as they aim to continue this brilliant streak.

The 2-0 victory over Accrington Stanley on February 14 was their fourth in a row, and it was the first time this season that had achieved such a feat.

Incredibly, the last time Wanderers picked up 12 points from 12 was in September/October 2021.
