Bolton Wanderers vs Leeds United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in different halves of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Bolton looked to be on course for a big point at Carrow Road against leaders Norwich but were undone by a late goal to go down 3-2. Mark Beevers grabbed one and Sammy Ameobi the other in a fixture that also saw him dismissed.

Leeds made it four straight victories with a 2-1 home success over QPR thanks to a Kemar Roofe brace (including one penalty). It was a deserved three points in a game that United dominated but still were made to work for victory.

These two have already met once this season which came at Elland Road in August with Leeds winning that day 2-1. It means the Yorkshire outfit have now won their last five meetings with Bolton.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Leeds are the most likely winners but the prices do not offer a real incentive to back them to win the game. A better way is to try and enhance the odds and I like the visitors to win the game and no in the both teams to score market.  United have kept three clean sheets in their last four and face a Bolton side missing their chief attacking threat in Sammy Ameobi who was dismissed against Norwich at the weekend.

I also like a double on under 2.5 goals and NO in the both teams to score market given how I think Bolton will struggle to score while the Yorkshire are not exactly blowing teams away at the moment.

Bolton Wanderers Preview

The Trotters are now winless in 11 and if it was not for the mess Ipswich are in would be bottom of the table. They sit in 23rd place though they remain just one point away from Millwall in 21st place.

At the Macron Stadium, they are without a victory in five losing four of these though they did draw their last one 1-1 with Wigan. Three of their next four at their own place are against sides in the top ten.

Each of the last two and three of the last four Bolton have played have seen both teams find the back of the net. Just one of their last seven and two of their last 14 have gone over 2.5 goals.

 

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Stephen Ireland (calf) continues his absence while Sammy Ameobi will miss out through suspension.

Leeds United Preview

United have now won four straight conceding just once in the process as they keep the pressure on leaders Norwich. The Yorkshire outfit are one behind the table toppers but crucially are five above the side in third (Sheffield United).

Away from Elland Road, it has been a mixed bag of late with two victories and two defeats in their last four. After this they face a tricky trio of road trips with their next three on their travels coming against top ten opponents.

The last four Leeds league games have produced a total of just seven goals with two of the last three just seeing a single strike. They have kept a clean sheet in three of their last four and three of their last five when just looking at ties they hosted.

 

Leeds United Team News

Liam Cooper (knee), Gaetano Berardi (hamstring), Luke Ayling, Izzy Brown (both knee) and Conor Shaughnessy (muscle) are out.
