Bolton Wanderers vs Preston North End Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

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

Bolton picked up a useful road point at Carrow Road against Norwich in their last match in a tie that ended goalless. Wanderers probably were a little lucky as the Canaries saw most of the ball but they did a good job in limiting the number of chances. Preston will be disappointed they lost touch with the top six following a 1-0 home loss to Ipswich last time out. They can have few complaints about the result as their performance was flat and uninspiring. The reverse fixture came in mid-November at Deepdale finished with both sides failing to find the back of the net. It was the second of their last three head-to-heads to not feature a goal.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bolton look good things here having lost none of their last six at home and just one of their last 12. It is true that Preston are unbeaten in nine on the road but they were poor against Ipswich and you wonder if they can make the running against a side who will happily concede possession. The draw is a real runner so be sure to include that and Wanderers in a double chance bet or a draw no bet if you less cautious. These two are quite careful sides so we might have to wait for a goal if one even comes at all. The recommendation then is to say that the match will have no early goal which is timed at 34:00

Bolton Wanderers Preview

The Trotters have had a mixed set of results of late with two victories, three draws and two defeats from their last seven. They are currently four points above the bottom three and just one of their next six comes against a top eight side. At the Macron Stadium, it is six without defeat for Wanderers and just one in their last 12 in the league. Each of their last seven in front of their own fans has gone under 2.5 goals and seen a combined total of ten. None of the last four Bolton have played in the league have seen both teams score and just two of their last 13. Following the sale of Gary Madine to Cardiff in January their highest scoring player is Sammy Ameboi who has just four goals.

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Josh Vela (ankle), Craig Noone (knee) and Stephen Darby (head) are doubts. Mark Little and Karl Henry will miss the game through suspension.

Preston North End Preview

The Lilywhites saw their seven-game unbeaten run come to an end and are now four without a victory with three draws in this sequence. They are down to ninth and are on the outside looking in to the play-offs. Away from Deepdale, it is now nine without defeat in the Championship though three of their last four have finished all-square. They have managed to net at least once on the road in each of their last five and eight of their last nine. Four of their last five and seven of their last nine at all grounds have seen both teams find the back of the net. Tom Barkhuizen has three goals in his last six and in each of the last three on the road.

Preston North End Team News

Calum Woods (unknown), Sean Maguire (hamstring) and Tom Clarke (knock) are doubts. Darnell Fisher will miss the game through suspension.
