We run the rule over another of the new teams in the Championship for 2017/18, Bolton Wanderers

Team: Bolton Wanderers 

Manager: Phil Parkinson 

Nickname: The Trotters

Stadium: The Macron Stadium 

Capacity: 28723

Miles from Loftus Road (round-trip): 436

Position: 2nd (League One)

2016/17: Phil Parkinson’s side were pretty consistent throughout most of this season and ended the campaign deserved runners up despite Fleetwood pushing them all the way. Known more for their defensive qualities – Bolton conceded fewer goals than any other team during League One this season - they had, in David Wheater and Mark Beevers, a very solid central defensive partnership. 

One to watch: Josh Vela - The 23-year-old can operate in a number of positions and is perhaps Bolton’s most eye-pleasing player but he also chipped in with ten goals this season and Parkinson will be hoping he can make the step up to the next level.
