Last four matches: Charlton (h) W1-0, Scunthorpe (h) L0-1, AFC Wimbledon (a) W3-0, Rochdale (a) D1-1

One to watch: Ched Evans was jokingly presented with a Bolton shirt by his team-mates after a potential deadline-day move was blocked. But he bounced back from any disappointment by netting the winner against Charlton - his 13th goal of the season.

Referee: Staffordshire’s Ollie Yates infuriated David Hopkin at Valley Parade in September when he missed Bristol Rovers defender Tony Craig handling on the line to deny Eoin Doyle.

Odds: City 7/5; Fleetwood 9/5; draw 9/4

Last time sides met: City were beaten 2-1 at Fleetwood in early September - the last game that Michael Collins was in charge before being sacked after six games.
