📝 Match Preview: Bolton Wanderers (A)

Exeter City are on the road again this weekend, making the trip to face Bolton Wanderers in a 3pm kick-off in EFL Sky Bet League One.

City come into the match on the back of Tuesday night's win over Swindon Town in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy, putting an end to the run of winless matches, and will be looking to build on this at the Toughsheet Community Stadium.

The Grecians come up against one of the form sides in the country in Bolton. Currently sitting third in the table, just a point off top, Bolton have won nine of their last ten matches and will prove a tough test for City.
