Bolton Wanderers starting XI vs Cheltenham confirmed as Conor Bradley misses out

Ian Evatt has made three changes to his starting XI for Bolton Wanderers' clash with Cheltenham Town, with Conor Bradley missing out on the match.

After being forced to wait 10 days between their last two fixtures, Bolton have no such problem this time as they will swiftly return to action on Tuesday evening to take on Cheltenham. The Whites are on a four-game winning streak in League One after their dominant 2-0 victory over Lincoln on Saturday, with Dion Charles and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson grabbing the goals.

If Evatt's side stretches their run to five wins at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium, they will climb to at least fourth placed and could even jump as high as third — though that would require Sheffield Wednesday to lose to Plymouth Argyle and for there to be a four-goal swing.

In an attempt to pick up another three points Evatt has made three changes to his victorious side with two of them appearing to be enforced. Bradley has been a mainstay at right wing-back since arriving on loan from Liverpool but is not involved at all in the game. Centre-back Will Aimson has taken his place, with Gethin Jones presumably pushing forward to the flanks.

Kieran Lee is also not involved at all after his classy display at the weekend and has been replaced by Kyle Dempsey. There's no word yet on how serious the issues afflicting both players are as of yet but Evatt may provide an update after the match.

Finally, Bodvarsson has also returned to the starting XI after his goal off the bench against the Imps with Elias Kachunga making way. Joining him on the bench is Josh Sheehan as he continues his comeback from serious injury and youngster Owen Beck.

Bolton Wanderers starting XI vs Cheltenham: Trafford; Aimson, Santon, Johnston; Jones, Williams, Thomason, Iredale; Dempsey; Bodvarsson, Charles.

Substitutes: Sadlier, Sheehan. Bakayoko, Morley, Afolayan, Kachunga, Beck.
