Why Bolton Wanderers' 3pm Saturday clash vs Fleetwood Town is on iFollow & how to watch

Bolton Wanderers will be aiming to climb back into the League One top six this weekend when they take on Fleetwood Town.

Wanderers make the trip to the Fylde Coast this weekend seeking three points against Fleetwood Town. The Whites sit seventh in the table and just outside the play-offs on goal difference in a tight battle in the top half of the standings.

Brown's Fleetwood meanwhile sit 16th in the table and are eight points clear of the drop zone. They are unbeaten in their last four league games and will be aiming to extend that run when they take on Wanderers.

The 3pm kick-off on a Saturday would normally not be allowed to be broadcast on iFollow domestically. It can be shown to an international audience.

The Premier League and Championship have been put on hold during the group stages of the World Cup. The second tier is poised to resume around the weekend of December 10.

However, the next two rounds of League One and League Two fixtures can be shown via the platform domestically. It is because due to the Saturday afternoon closed window (Article 48) not applying during the tournament, meaning that where fans cannot get to a match, then there is still an opportunity to watch EFL teams in action.

It means Wanderers supporters who are not at Highbury tomorrow afternoon can pay £10 to watch the game in full.

EFL chief executive Trevor Birch said: “With EFL fixtures continuing throughout the World Cup, we have a fantastic opportunity to showcase our competition, with supporters able to enjoy more access to watch their Club play, whether at the ground, in the pub or at home.

“While the winter World Cup has brought challenges for domestic leagues, for the EFL it also brings this opportunity to test how the streaming of live matches during traditionally blocked hours is received by fans that wish to watch their team, wherever they may be.”
