Preview: Five talking points ahead of Bolton Wanderers v Leeds United

As Wanderers prepare to welcome Leeds United to Macron Stadium for their opening game of the 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship campaign, highlights five talking points ahead of Sunday's encounter.

1. New Season

After over three months, competitive football returns to Macron Stadium and it sees Wanderers back in the Sky Bet Championship!

Leeds are the first visitors to BL6 in the new campaign, with the Elland Road outfit making the short journey over the Pennines for Sunday's 4.30pm televised kick-off.

And with the world watching on, the Trotters have the perfect opportunity to make their mark from the outset this term.

2. New Faces

It's certainly been a busy week at Macron Stadium, with four new faces coming through the door since Monday.

There's been a trio of loan acquisitions in the form of Reece Burke, Josh Cullen and Antonee Robinson, while experienced frontman Aaron Wilbraham also agreed terms with the Whites.

Could the quartet make their bows in Sunday's opener? Only time will tell...

3. Bumper Crowd

Following on from impressive season ticket sales during the summer break, we're expecting a bumper crowd of over 20,000 inside Macron Stadium this Sunday.

Tickets are still available however to supporters with a previous booking history and can be purchased HERE.
