We continue our series of the Football League Championship clubs’ matches of the past this morning with Bolton Wanderers, and six matches from the years between 1954 and 2003. The first match comes from 1954, and sees Bolton travel to the Manor Ground to play Headington United, who were of course to later become Oxford United, on a snow covered pitch in the FA Cup. We then have two matches from the 1970s. First is a home match in the FA Cup against Newcastle United from 1976, and this is followed by a tense last match of the season from a little over twelve months later, against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Burnden Park.
Next up comes a marathon series of matches from the 1989 League Cup against Swindon Town, which required three replays before finally being settled, and then, from four years later, we see the team travel to Anfield to play Liverpool in the FA Cup in a replay after the two sides had drawn their first match. Our final match comes from the 2003/04 season, and sees Bolton travel to Ewood Park to play Blackburn Rovers in the Premier League.
