Bolton have added two further games to their pre-season schedule, with outings against Sturm Graz and SC Paderborn to be played in Austria.

Wanderers' first-team squad report for pre-season training next week, as early preparations for the 2015/16 campaign begin.

Neil Lennon's side will fly out to Austria on July 6 and will be in non-competitive action just five days later, when they face three-time national champions Sturm Graz at Stadion Kumberg. Kick-off is at 18:00 local time - 17:00 UK time.

Graz are a regular feature on the European stage, including five appearances in the UEFA Champions League. Their most recent game at that level ended in disappointment, as they lost 1-0 over two legs to Icelandic side UBK Kopavogur in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League in 2013.

Following Wanderers' game against Graz, they return to action two days later with a game against twin-town team SC Paderborn. That fixture will be played at the Franz Fekete Stadion in Kapfenberg on July 13, with a local kick-off time of 17:00 - 16:00 UK time.

Paderborn will play in the German equivalent of the Championship next season - 2. Bundesliga - after finishing bottom of the top division in 2014/15, in what was the first campaign in the top flight since their formation in 1907.
