Bolton Wanderers will look to get back to winning ways when promotion-chasing Wycombe visit the UniBol on Saturday.

From likely line-ups, to key men and the referee, all you need to know ahead of the game can be found below.

LIKELY LINE-UPS

Wanderers (4-3-3): Matthews, Emmanuel, Nsiala, Edwards, Fleming, Lowe, L Murphy, Hamilton, Politic, D Murphy, O’Grady.

Wycombe (4-3-3): Allsop, McCarthy, Stewart, Jombati, Jacobson, Pattison, Gape, Freeman, Wheeler, Samuel, Parker.

OPPOSITION MANAGER

Gareth Ainsworth ­- The longest-serving manager in the EFL and Premier League at nearly seven-and-a-half years, Ainsworth led Wycombe out of League Two and to a rather improbable promotion push, which began with a 2-0 victory against Bolton on the opening day of the season. Momentum has stalled recently with three wins in 11.

WHO MAKES THEM TICK?

At the back: Anthony Stewart – Centre-back who has been with the Chairboys for most of their journey up the league. Solid and quick.

In the middle: Dominic Gape – Been a regular at the heart of the Wycombe midfield for a few years now and knits things together well.

Up front: Adebayo Akinfenwa – Hulking striker who has become a cult figure in football but proved a handful on the opening day of the season.

THEY SAID IT

“Hopefully I’ll be one of those good managers who get up to 500 or 600 games! But I’m proud of my time here. I think we have put the club back on the map.

“I’ve seen shirts in the town centre, I’ve seen stuff in the local press, I’ve seen stuff in shop windows that I never saw 10 years ago, maybe even 25 years ago when there was a big hoo-ha about the club getting into the Football League.” – Gareth Ainsworth on reaching 400 games in charge of Wycombe
