Bolton will head into the Championship season off the back of a disappointing 0-0 draw with Chester after drawing a blank at the Deva Stadium.

Wanderers begin the 2013/2014 campaign by facing Burnley, who have won four in a row during their impressive pre-season, and Dougie Freedman will have plenty to ponder ahead of the clash.

Chester began brightly and nearly took the lead when Jamie Menagh blasted over the bar - Bolton responding at the other end through an ambitious effort from Oscar Threlkeld.

Six half-time substitutions helped the hosts control much of the second period and they came closest on the hour mark when George Horan headed against the post from a Paul Linwood delivery.

Marc Williams and Alex Titchener then wasted further opportunities to snatch a morale-boosting victory for Chester with Bolton failing to create clear-cut chances of their own.
