Bolton are to face Watford in a behind-closed-doors pre-season friendly at the Hornets' London Colney training ground on July 12.

Wanderers' first-team squad is due to return from an overseas training camp in Portugal over the weekend, before stepping out for their first summer friendly at Longridge Town on Tuesday evening.

Ian Evatt's side will slowly step up their intensity, minutes on the field and quality of opposition, and had been due to meet Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park on the same date as the Watford fixture - only to cancel those plans last month following negative feedback from supporters of both clubs, in protestation against ongoing ownership issues the Latics find themselves in.

The Trotters will instead face Rob Edwards' side, who will begin the new EFL campaign amongst the favourites to achieve promotion to the Premier League, having dropped out of the top-flight last season.
