Bolton Wanderers vs Sheffield Wednesday Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixtures sees the bottom of the table side play host to a side looking to end the season in the top six. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Bolton suffered an eighth successive league defeat last time out as they lost 1-0 at Villa Park to Aston Villa. Though it was another loss the Trotters can take some small crumbs of comfort in that they did not look out of their depth against one of the promotion hopefuls. Sheffield Wednesday restored some much-needed pride after losing to local rivals United the weekend earlier when they beat fellow Yorkshire outfit Leeds 3-0. Gary Hooper continued his great form (seven in seven) with a brace while Kieran Lee grabbed the other goal. These two have already met this season which came in the League Cup and it was Bolton who won that one 3-2. Dorian Dervite, Adam Armstrong and Jem Karacan got the goals that day for the home side while Jordan Rhodes grabbed a brace for the Owls.

Betting Tips and Predictions

As ever Bolton should be taken on and I amazed to see the value on offer on Sheffield Wednesday considering these two sides will finish in very different positions. I am recommending the straight match bet against a Bolton side who have lost each of their last eight. Given he has seven in seven and is against such a weak defence Gary Hooper to score at any time in this fixture also looks great value.

Bolton Wanderers Preview

Wanderers fans tend to be split on whether Phil Parkinson is a man making the most of difficult circumstances or a man who despite the difficult circumstances is being exposed as a man out of his depth in the Championship. The truth probably lies somewhere in between but few managers can survive a run of eight straight defeats and two points from their opening 11 games. At home, they have lost each of their five games though they did win that League Cup match against Wednesday. They have shipped 12 goals from these five fixtures which is an average of over two per match. Things are bleak at both ends of the pitch with a league low four goals scored and only Burton (23) have shipped more than the 22 they have conceded. They have been behind at half-time and full-time in each of their five in front of their own fans.

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Josh Vela (ankle), Stephen Darby and Will Buckley (both hamstring) are closing in on returns while Ben Alnwick (neck) and Derik Osede (groin) are unlikely to feature.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

Wednesday have had a solid if unspectacular start to the season winning four times, drawing three and losing four to sit in 12th place. Carlos Carvalhal splits the fans with some appreciative of the two play-off appearances in the last two years and think he deserves more time while others think he has took the Owls as far as he can. On the road, they have taken just five points from their first five fixtures, with no victory from their last three. These games on their travels tend to be low-scoring with a total of just seven goals. Wednesday have netted 15 for the season and conceded 12 both of which have them in the mid-ranges of the goals for and goals against tables. Just 33% of the goals they have scored have come in the first-half and none in the opening 15 minutes.
