Bolton Wanderers take on MK Dons on Saturday, in a game that could see Keith Hill’s side move into positive points for the first time this season with a win.
The Trotters have shown improvement as the season has progressed, and they’ll fancy their chances of adding to MK Dons’ poor run of form coming into this one.
Keith Hill has named his starting XI for the game, where there is a timely return to the squad for Liam Bridcutt who comes straight into the heart of the midfield.
📋 Brids is back! 💪🏾
Liam Bridcutt comes back into the team marking a return from a six-week injury lay-off.

Bridcutt hasn’t featured since October where he broke his collarbone against Blackpool that kept him sidelined, which will have been frustrating for Hill, with the on-loan Nottingham Forest man impressing since arriving earlier this season.
Josh Earl also comes into the starting XI, with young defender Yoan Zouma dropping to the substitutes bench.
Plenty of Bolton fans took to social media to react to Bridcutt’s surprise inclusion.
