We make the trip to face Bolton Wanderers on New Year’s Eve, and here is an away guide ahead of our game there.The Macron Stadium…
Boasting an impressive capacity of over 28,000, the Whites’ home is one of the largest in the division, and was only opened just under 20 years ago.
It should take you just under an hour and forty five minutes to get to Bolton’s home, but of course allow plenty of time for your journey.
Getting there by car…
From Glanford Park, take the first left at the roundabout by Tesco’s and the first exit at the next one onto the M181 to Humber Bridge/Doncaster/M180. Keep right upon reaching a fork before following signs for the M180 towards Doncaster.
At the roundabout, you’ll need to take the 3rd exit onto the M18 slip road to the M62. After you’ve merged onto the M18, use the two left lanes to merge onto the M62. Continue onto the M60 and, then at junction 15, use the left to take the M61 exit to M6.
Continue onto the M61, and keep left at the fork, following signs for Preston. At junction 6, use the left two lanes to take the A6027 exit to Horwich. At Horwich Link Interchange, take the 3rd exit onto De Havilland Way. At the roundabout, take the 2nd exit and stay on De Havilland Way, and the ground will be on your left.

The quickest route to Horwich Parkway (which is 200 metres from the Macron Stadium) is to make two changes, the first of which is at Manchester Piccadilly. After arriving at the station, you’ll need to make the short walk to Manchester Victoria, where a direct train to Horwich will be available.
The journey to Manchester Piccadilly should take just under two hours and, if you were to leave Scunthorpe at 10:08, you’d arrive at Piccadilly at 12:03. The train from Victoria is at 12:50, getting you to Horwich for 13:15.
