Barnsley vs Bolton Wanderers Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture is a huge one at the bottom of the table as it features fourth and third bottom doing battle.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Barnsley saw their two-game unbeaten run come to an end on Tuesday night as they went down 1-0 at Ipswich.  The Tykes were probably second best though they maybe had hoped they had done enough to earn a point.

Bolton lost their fourth successive game as they suffered a 2-0 home loss to Millwall during the week.  The Trotters were second-best though the scoreline was probably a little harsh on them.

The reverse fixture came in early December and Bolton won on that occasion 3-1 with a brace from Gary Madine and one from Mark Little.  Tom Bradshaw (penalty) netted for the Yorkshire who have lost each of their last four meetings.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Barnsley are the favourites for this game though they have shown slightly more form in the last few matches it is hard to make a case for them at the prices though nor could I side with a Bolton team who have won just once on the road all season.

Despite their poor scoring record on the road I think Wanderers can score here and I like both teams to score which has happened in six of the last eight and eight of the last 11 for the Tykes.  

Darren Pratley played just off the striker in midweek and at these prices looks good value to score during this fixture.

Barnsley Preview

The Tykes have taken just five points from their last seven fixtures which has not been enough to keep them out of the bottom three given the form shown by Birmingham.  This is a massive game as they face a Bolton side just two points above them.

At Oakwell, they have won just one of their last 12 though this did come in their previous game here.  The 30 goals they have shipped at their own ground gives them the joint-third worst home defensive record in the division.

Six of the last eight and eight of the last 11 that Barnsley have played have seen both teams find the back of the net.  Oliver McBurnie needs to bounce back to form after just one goal in his last four and two in his last six.

 

Barnsley Team News

Mamadou Thiam (unknown) and Matt Mills (ankle) are doubts. Nick Townsend (hand) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Bolton Wanderers Preview

A run of four straight defeats and just one victory from their last nine has dragged the Trotters back into after seemingly looking to have dragged themselves clear.  They are two points ahead of Barnsley though they have a game in hand.

Away from the iPro Stadium, they are without a victory in eight and have won a league low one road fixture all season.  They have netted just 12 times on their travels this season which is four lower than any side in the division.

A lack of regular goalscorer has been their undoing this season with Gary Madine their top scorer with ten but he left in January and Adam Le Fondre next with five.  They have failed to net in their last three and just five times in total from their last eight.

 

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Jan Kirchoff ((hamstring) and Stephen Darby (head) are doubts.
