A 3-1 defeat away to Burton Albion in their latest league contest ended Bolton’s impressive unbeaten run after Ian Evatt’s side conceded three goals in the opening 18 minutes against the Brewers.
Joe Powell’s opener was quickly followed by a John Brayford brace to give the hosts complete control, with the only positive for Bolton being a Dion Charles consolation goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
Although one unbeaten run has come to an end, Bolton will look to extend their undefeated home streak to five games on Saturday after collecting four consecutive home victories.
The Trotters scored 12 goals in those four home matches, while they only conceded once in that period, which will instill confidence in the hosts ahead of Saturday’s contest.
However, Evatt will be concerned by the fact that his side have conceded the most goals (13) in the opening 15 minutes in League One this season.
A 12-game winless run has seen Wimbledon dragged into a relegation battle, with the Dons just one point clear of the drop zone.

Luke McCormick gave the Dons the lead from the penalty spot in the 25th minute, but an Alex Pritchard effort ten minutes later proved to be the final goal of the encounter, with both managers having to settle for a point apiece.
With five of their last six league games taking place at home, Wimbledon will now head on the road for consecutive away fixtures and after picking up two points from their previous five away league matches, the Dons require an improvement on the road if they are to move away from danger.
A concern for Robinson will be the fact that Wimbledon have conceded 17 away goals in the second half this season, and they will need to remain focused for the full 90 minutes to pick up a positive result on Saturday
