The reverse fixture came on August 11th at the Macron Stadium and it ended in a 2-2 draw with Will Buckley and Josh Magennis netting for Wanderers. Andreas Weimann and Jamie Paterson netted for City who fought back from two down to claim a point.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bristol City should win this game but the price on them to do so is restrictive so you will need to find a better angle into the game. Given Bolton have blanked in three of their last four on the road a City win and no in the both teams to score market appeals.

The Trotters have conceded just two of their last 11 in the first-half so back the Robins to score more after the interval than prior to it.

Bristol City Preview

The Robins are eight unbeaten in the league a run that has allowed to move into 11th place in the Championship. They sit four points from the play-offs and just one of their next five is against a team in the top eight.

At Ashton Gate, City are unbeaten in their last four through three of these matches have finished all-square. Just one of their last seven at their own place has gone over 2.5 goals with four of these seven seeing just a solitary strike.

Bristol City moved to strengthen their side by bringing in Kasey Palmer on loan from Chelsea who is expected to play off the striker. They have let a few fringe players leave with Rory Holden joining Rochdale and Cameron Pring to Cheltenham.

 

Bristol City Team News

Nathan Baker (calf) and Marley Watkins (leg) are doubts while Korey Smith and Liam Walsh (both knee) are long-term absentees.

Bolton Wanderers Preview

The Trotters have lost four of their last six but are still in 22nd and just three points behind Rotherham in 21st. They now face three in a row and seven of their next eight against teams in the top 12.

Away from the Macron, the Lancashire outfit have lost four straight conceding 11 times and netting just two. Nine of these 11 goals have come in the second-half and five in the 25 minutes just after the break.

Bolton have huge financial issues which means they are unlikely to bring players in especially given the complaints a number of sides have had about them failing to pay wages or fees for existing deals. It is unclear if they will be forced to sell to raise some funds or whether they will face a points deduction for financial matters.

 

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Andrew Taylor, Stephen Ireland (both calf), Gary O’Neil, Jack Hobbs (both unknown) and Marc Wilson (thigh) are doubts.
