Bolton Wanderers vs Brentford Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game features two sides in the relegation zone who are desperate for three points. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Bolton were in action in the League Cup in midweek where they were playing host to West Ham and they lost 3-0. In the league, they lost their fifth straight going down 2-0 at Portman Road to Ipswich. Brentford were also playing in the League Cup in midweek in a game against Norwich which ended in a 3-1 defeat with a late consolation goal from Josh Clarke. In the Championship, they drew 1-1 at home to Reading in a game that saw them take an early lead through Josh Clarke but they conceded a penalty that allowed the Royals to draw level and escape with a point. It was the 2015/16 season that these sides last met and in that campaign the Bees took four points from these matches, winning in London and drawing in Lancashire. Lasse Vibe is rated doubtful here but it is worth noting he got a brace in their last meeting.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Brentford will not get a better opportunity to break their league winning duck but a price at around evens offers no appeal considering they have not won in the Championship this season. Under 2.5 goals makes sense here because both teams are struggling for league goals with Bolton having netted just four times in the entire season and the Bees just once on their travels. This also seems good reason to play the no in the both teams to score market.

Bolton Wanderers Preview

Just two points from eight games means that the Trotters are bottom of the table and with finances constrained it is going to be a struggle to get out from that spot. They have lost each of their last five in the Championship netting just once in these games. At home, it is four defeats from four this season with three goals scored and nine conceded. Three of their four at their own ground have gone over 2.5 goals though the last one did not. 75% of the goals the Lancashire side have scored have come in the second-half and specifically in the final 30 minutes. The average time of the first goal conceded is the 24th minute.

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Josh Vela (ankle), Sammy Ameobi (ankle) and Stephen Darby (hamstring) are listed day-to-day while Will Buckley (hamstring) and Derik Osede (groin) are doubts.

Brentford Preview

It feels like the story of every week to say Brentford played well and did not win but that is why they sit third bottom of the table and have four points from eight games. They have drawn three of their last four in the league and four of their last six. On the road, they do have a League Cup win at QPR but in the league, it is three defeats one draw from four. They have netted just once in their Championship travels while shipping a total of five goals so these tend to be low-scoring games. Neal Maupay is the only Bees player to have netted more than one league goal this season. 43% of the goals that they have scored this season have come in the final 15 minutes of a tie.

Brentford Team News

Lasse Vibe (foot) and Henrik Dalsgaard (knock) are doubts while Lewis MacLeod (cruciate) is a long-term absentee.
