Bolton Wanderers vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

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

Bolton are still in relegation trouble following their 2-2 road draw with Barnsley in their last fixture.  An 82nd minute Adam Le Fondre penalty and a Craig Noone 85th minute goal put them on course for all three points only to be denied in injury-time.

Wolves registered their third straight league victory last weekend as they comfortably saw off Birmingham 2-0.  Diogo Jota and Benik Afobe got the goals in a game that saw the Blues play the final 38 minutes with ten men.

The reverse fixture came late November and it was a game the Black Country won 5-1 thanks to a brace from Ivan Cavaleiro and one each from Diogo Jota, Leo Bonatini and Willy Boly.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

I presume the prices on offer reflect the fact that this is a must win game for Bolton while Wolves are already promoted.  These two sides could be two leagues apart next season and the gulf in class means the visitors look a great bet here.

The Trotters are going to need to try and win the game while the Black Country side can try pick them off on the break and with that being the case then I think backing over 2.5 goals looks the play.

Bolton Wanderers Preview

Just one point from their last five means that the Trotters are in trouble at the bottom and sit in 20th place.  They are just two points above the drop zone and have played a game more than Barnsley in 22nd.

At the Macron Stadium, they have lost their last two and three of their last four with the sole victory coming over Aston Villa.  Only one of their last 11 in front of their own fans have gone over 2.5 goals.

Adam Le Fondre has found the back of the net four times in his last eight domestic appearances.  Each of their last four and six of their last eight meetings with Wolves have gone over 2.5 goals.

 

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Jan Kirchoff ((hamstring) and Stephen Darby (head) are doubts.

 

Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview

Six victories and one draw from their last seven fixtures means that Wolves have secured their place in the Championship.  They also need one more point to be certain of going up as Champions though a superior goal-difference means they should do it anyway.

Away from Molienux, they have won their last two and three of their last four with a divisional high 13 road wins this season.  The Black Country outfit have the second-best road attack in the league and the best road defence.

Diogo Jota has 16 goals in the Championship this season including four in his previous six appearances.  Wolves have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three and on 22 occasions this season.

 

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News

Ivan Cavaleiro (hamstring), Bright Enobakhare (knock), Joe Mason (stomach) and Phil Ofosu-Ayeh (ankle) are doubts.  Carl Ikeme is a long-term absentee as he continues his fight against Leukemia.
