Bolton have been handed a difficult start to the new season, with two relegated teams first up at the Reebok Stadium.

Following Tuesday's news that Wanderers will begin the new campaign with a trip to Burnley, the rest of the fixture list was revealed at 9am and couldn't be much tougher for Dougie Freedman's side.

After the game at Turf Moor on August 3rd, Bolton will travel to Shrewsbury Town in the first round of the Capital One Cup. The following weekend will see Reading visit the Reebok, before Harry Redknapp's Queens Park Rangers arrive in the North West a fortnight later. A trip to Nottingham Forest is sandwiched between those two home fixtures, before the opening month finishes with a local derby at Blackburn Rovers.

September begins with a short international break, before Bolton return to action at home to Leeds United.

Wanderers travel to Barnsley on Boxing Day, before ending 2013 away at Leicester City on December 29th. They will open 2014 at home to Middlesbrough.

Freedman's side will be busy over Easter weekend, with a trip to Charlton Athletic scheduled for April 19th and a home game against Leicester City to follow just 48 hours later.

The final away game will see Bolton face Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on April 26th, before the regular campaign ends at home to Birmingham City on May 3rd.
