Bolton Wanderers vs Swansea City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides looking to bounce back from defeat last time out. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Bolton lost their third straight and stretched their winless run to six with a 2-0 road defeat at Aston Villa last time out. The Lancashire outfit did reasonably well to restrict Villa to limited chances but rarely threatened to net themselves.

Swansea saw their two-game winning run come to an end as they lost 2-1 away at Rotherham. Ollie McBurnie had put them in front but they shot themselves in the foot by giving away two penalties in an eight-minute spell.

These two sides have not met in the league since 2012 so it is hard to read much into the head-to-head record. For what it is worth it is honours even with one win each and a draw from their three meetings this century.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Swansea are favourites to win this game and given Bolton have lost each of their last three and five of their last six at home I can see why. That being said the Welsh side have been poor on the road (five without a win) so neither side can be trusted.

The Trotters have not scored in their last three at home while the Swans have failed to net in four of their last five on the road so no in the both teams to score market looks a sensible approach here.

Wanderers have netted just 18% of their goals in the first thirty minutes while City have netted just 22% and with neither side full of confidence going forward backing the time of the first goal to come after 31:00 appeals.

Bolton Wanderers Preview

The Trotters have lost five of their last six and won just one of their last 11 as they sit down in 20th spot. The expected goals data has them even lower in the table and believes they should be second bottom.

At the Macron Stadium, they have lost each of their last three and five of their previous six making for a difficult home atmosphere. They have failed to net in each of their last three in front of their own fans.

Bolton have been ahead just once going into the break and behind on eight occasions with seven times they were level. Just four of their 11 goals this season have come in the opening half.

 

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Stephen Ireland (fitness), Gary O’Neil (calf) and Sammy Ameobi (ankle) are closing in on returns while Jake Turner (broken wrist) is still a few weeks away from a return.

Swansea City Preview

The Swans have been in an out in the last eight with three victories, two draws and three defeats. They sit in ninth place and will hope to strengthen the squad in January to launch a full promotion push.

Away from the Liberty Stadium, it is five without a victory including back-to-back defeats and losses in three of these five. The Welsh outfit netted at Rotherham which put to an end a run of four without scoring on their travels.

Swansea would be down in 15th if the league was settled at the interval with them having been ahead just four times going into the break. Just six of the 18 goals they have netted have come in the first-half.

Swansea City Team News

Wilfried Bony (fitness), George Byers, Tom Carroll (both groin), Jordi Govea (hamstring) and Jefferson Montero (thigh) are doubts while Luciano Narsingh (also hamstring) is a long-term absentee.
