Bolton Wanderers vs Crystal Palace Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Bolton Wanderers will be aiming to continue their good run of form and to progress in the FA Cup when they welcome Crystal Palace to the Macron Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Bolton Wanderers fought back from one-goal down twice to earn a point from their 2-2 away draw at Coventry last time out in League One. Zach Clough scored from the spot in the 67th minute for Phil Parkinson’s team, while Max Clayton netted the equaliser in the stoppage time. On the contrary, Crystal Palace were beaten 1-2 at home by Swansea in the Premier League on Tuesday, with Wilfried Zaha scoring the consolation goal for Sam Allardyce’s men. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Bolton Wanderers Preview

Bolton Wanderers were unable to extend their winning streak in League One to three games on Monday, as they only managed a 2-2 draw on the road at Coventry. Their form over the past two months has been decent, as they have only lost once in their last nine games across all competitions. The Trotters find themselves in second position in the League One table with 50 points to their name after 25 rounds, just three points off the current leaders Sheffield United. Bolton Wanderers have been impeccable at the Macron Stadium over the past two months, winning their last ten home fixtures in all competitions. They looked excellent at both ends of the field during this run, scoring 21 goals and conceding just 5 in the process. The Trotters have already registered two victories in the FA Cup this season, beating Grimsby 1-0 in the first round and Sheffield United 3-2 in the second round. Their recent form in the FA Cup has seen Bolton losing just once in their last five games in the competition. Zach Clough is a player to watch here, as the 21-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 8 goals in his 21 league appearances.

Crystal Palace Preview

Coach Sam Allardyce spent nine years with Bolton Wanderers as a player and eight more as the manager, so he will be greeted like a hero at the Macron Stadium this weekend. Alan Pardew was sacked just before Christmas, which means that Allardyce was in charge for Palace’s last three league fixtures, but he only managed a point in this term. The Glaziers have only won once in their last 14 games in the Premier League and are currently on a six-game winless streak. Crystal Palace find themselves in 17th place in the standings with just one point clear of the relegation zone. Crystal Palace have struggled to keep the ball out of the net throughout this Premier League campaign, as they hold one of the most leakiest defences in the division with 37 goals conceded in 20 league fixtures. At the other end of the pitch, the Glaziers managed a decent tally of 30 goals, including eight from their top scorer Christian Benteke. However, Crystal Palace will be looking to replicate last years FA Cup’s performances when they managed to reach the Final. They beat Southampton, Stoke, Tottenham, Reading and Watford, but suffered a 1-2 defeat in extra time at the hands of Manchester United in the final round. Crystal Palace are winless in their last seven away games in the Premier League, but they did well to beat Bolton Wanderers 0-1 in their most recent trip to the Macron Stadium.

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Mark Davies, Darren Pratley and Mark Howard are all missing through injury ahead of this game.

Crystal Palace Team News

Steve Mandanda, Pape Ndiaye Souare, Jonathan Benteke and Connor Wickham are all out through injury, while Scott Dann and James McArthur are both doubts. The good news is that Loic Remy is back in training following his thigh injury.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Bolton Wanderers should have a great chance here, as Crystal Palace are without several attacking players for this match. Christian Benteke is out through injury, while Wilfried Zaha and Bakary Sako are missing due to International duties at the African Cup of Nations. Furthermore, Bolton have won their last ten home fixtures in all competitions, while Crystal Palace are winless in the last seven away games. This having been said, I’m backing Bolton Wanderers to secure at least a draw, but I’m also expecting Crystal Palace to get on the scoresheet.
