The draw for the second round of the 2016/17 Emirates FA Cup takes place on Monday, with Bolton being allocated ball number 26.

Wanderers progressed through to this stage with a 1-0 victory over Grimsby Town on Saturday and will look to make it into the third round for a 27th consecutive season.

The underlying reason for such a statistic is due to the fact that the Trotters have received a bye straight into round three each year since 1994.

In fact, the last time they failed to reach that stage was in 1989/90, when they were eliminated at the first hurdle by Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.

Bolton's most recent appearance in round two was in 1993/94, when goals from Alan Thompson, Phil Brown and Owen Coyle helped them to a 3-1 win at Lincoln City. That season, Bruce Rioch's side would ultimately go on to reach the quarter-finals.

The latest FA Cup draw, which will be screened live on both BBC Two and BT Sport, will begin at approximately 19:10 BST, with the following draw numbers confirmed:
