WIGAN Athletic’s Championship clash against Bolton in November has been brought forward 24 hours.

The trip to the newly-named Macron Stadium will now take place at Friday, November 7 and will be screened live on Sky TV.

Latics are unbeaten on their last four visits to Bolton, drawing three times - including last term - and winning 2-1 back in 2011/12.

Two other fixtures have been changed since the original list was announced. The home game with Sheffield Wednesday, originally scheduled for Sunday December 28, has moved to Tuesday December 30, kick-off 7.45pm.

Later on in the season, Wigan’s trip to Fulham, originally scheduled for Saturday April 11, is taking place on Friday April 10, kick-off 8pm, to accomodate the Boat Race.
