Away days: A guide to Wanderers' 2015/16 travels

All the details needed for Bolton supporters looking to follow the Whites during the course of the coming campaign

Following the release of the 2015/16 Sky Bet Championship fixtures on Wednesday morning, takes a look at whereabouts Wanderers will have to travel during the new season.

Having clocked up 6,681.5 miles on the road during the 2014/15 season, Whites supporters will be pleased to know they will only have to travel 6,233.8 miles this time around, largely thanks to AFC Bournemouth, Norwich City and Watford winning promotion as well as Millwall suffering relegation.

While there will be no clashes against local-rivals Blackpool or Wigan Athletic this time around following both clubs' drops to League One, Bolton still have three derbies to look forward to as both Burnley and Preston North End return to the division, while Neil Lennon’s side will once again lock horns with Blackburn Rovers.  

Naturally, these three games are the closest for the Trotters with Deepdale 18.8 miles away (38.9 miles round-trip), Ewood Park 20.5 miles away (39.4 miles round-trip), and Turf Moor 32.5 miles away (63.5 round-trip).

At the other end of the scale, Wanderers’ trip to Brighton & Hove Albion is the further they will have to go, with the American Express Community Stadium 274 miles away from Macron Stadium (548 miles round-trip).  

Clashes with Ipswich Town at Portman Road (245 miles away/491 miles round-trip) and Charlton Athletic at the Valley (236 miles away/472 miles round-trip) are the next furthest away, closely followed by the Whites’ final day trip to Fulham at Craven Cottage (223 miles away/445 miles round-trip).

Bolton supporters will also have 122 miles to travel (244 miles round-trip) for the club’s first away game of the season against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium, as well as 170 miles (339 miles round-trip) for their first ever meeting with MK Dons at Stadium:mk.

Meanwhile, the Trotters will also have to travel 79.6 miles (159 miles round-trip) for their Boxing Day visit to Rotherham United’s New York Stadium.
