Bolton Wanderers begin the 2020/21 season in the Carabao Cup.
The competition will provide the first competitive fixture for the Trotters under new boss Ian Evatt.
It will also be the first time since Bolton have kicked a ball in anger in a competitive fixture since mid-March when they played Burton Albion in a 2-2 draw at the Pirelli Stadium in League One.
Games have been postponed in League One and Two since then due to the coronavirus pandemic, except for the play-offs last season.
Matches in the 2020/21 campaign will kick off behind closed doors initially, with hopes that fans will be allowed to attend matches in limited numbers and observing social distancing measures in the weeks to come.
But before Wanderers begin their quest for promotion from League Two, they begin their season in the Carabao Cup first round.
Here, we’ve put together what you need to know about the game and how to watch it.

The result was decided on penalties with the Bantams emerging with a 4-3 victory in the shootout.
