Bolton travel to Cheltenham tomorrow night hoping to make it into the last 16 of the EFL Trophy. Well, hope, is it even a priority?
Anyway, to progress, Bolton need to win, either in 90 minutes or on penalties. Expect rotation within the uaual confines of the Trophy’s rules.

Player to watch: Max Clayton
