Bolton Wanderers vs West Bromwich Albion Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Monday evening (19:45) fixture is an important one at both ends of the Championship table as a promotion hopeful travels to a relegation threatened side. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Bolton are stretched their winless run to three in the league losing their second successive Championship game going down 2-1 at Bristol City. Will Buckley had put them ahead but the Robins were good value for their three points.

West Brom are now three without a victory in the league following a 1-1 home draw with Norwich. Dwight Gayle put them ahead and then Tim Kurl kept Norwich in it but the longer the game went the more the Canaries looked like levelling and they did.

The reverse fixture came on the opening day of the season and Wanderers won 2-1 at the Hawthorns. Harvey Barnes netted for Albion while Josh Magennis and Yanic WIldschut bagged for the Trotters.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to see past a West Brom victory here given the gulf in class between both sides through the price itself is of no value. Given that Bolton have failed to net in six of their last eight at home and the Baggies have tightened up at the back taking them to win and no in the both teams to score market appeals.

Five of the last six Wanderers have played have seen them level at the break and three times they have gone on to lose so back the draw in the HT and Albion in the FT market.

Bolton Wanderers Preview

The Trotters have lost five of their last seven and won just one of 17 in the league to sit in 23rd. They are among four sides who are separated by just seven points in the bottom four with the relegated trio likely to come from these.

At the Macorn, the Lancashire outfit have won just one of their last eight and just three times this season. In six of their last eight at their own place they have failed to find the back of the net.

In five of the last six Bolton have played in the Championship they have been level going into the break and gone on to lose three of them. They are the low scorers in the division with just 18 goals netted.

 

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Stephen Ireland (calf) and Gary O’Neil (unknown) are doubts.

West Bromwich Albion Preview

The Baggies have taken just two points from their last three but can take heart from the way they played the first hour against Norwich even with Harvey Barnes back at Leicester. They sit in fourth place just three behind the Blades and the Canaries on 50 points.

Away from the Hawthorns, the Black Country outfit lost last time at Blackburn but had won the four prior to that. The last five they have played on the road have gone over 2.5 goals with four seeing both teams net.

West Brom have tightened up at the back and conceding just four times in their five previous fixtures. You have to go back to November 3rd for the last time that they failed to net at least one goal.

West Bromwich Albion Team News

Jake Livermore will miss the third of a four-game suspension while Boaz Myhill (virus), James Morrison and Matt Phillips (both unknown) are doubts.
