Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Bolton Wanderers Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixtures sees the league leaders play host to the team second from bottom. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Wolves continued their good performances with a 4-1 defeat of Leeds on Wednesday night at Molineux. The goals were shared around the team with one each for Barry Douglas, Ivan Cavaleiro (two in two), Diogo Jota and a Helder Costa penalty. Bolton are also on a good run of form and they drew 2-2 with Reading in midweek at the Macron. The result will have been a disappointment as they lead 2-0 after 23 minutes thanks to a goal each from Reece Burke and Darren Pratley. The last time these side met was in the 2015/16 season with the Trotters taking four points from those meetings. These head-to-heads tend to be high scoring with five of the last seven going over 2.5 goals.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Wolves are the most likely winners of the game but the prices reflect this given how Bolton are not afraid to have a go on the road and six of their last seven on the road have seen both teams score take a home win and both teams to score. In each of their last four games Wolves to be ahead at half-time and then again at full-time would have paid and I like the look of that here once more.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview

It is now four straight victories for Wolves with ten goals netted in these matches and just one conceded. They have now built a four-point gap at the top of the table and I can see this rising with a nice run of games ahead. At Molineux, it is now five straight league victories with 13 goals scored in these fixtures and just four conceded. Leo Bonatini has netted four times in his last three appearances in front of his own fans. No side has scored more goals than the Black Country outfit who have netted 35 times which is four more than their nearest rivals. Their defence is also strong with the third best record in the division.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News

Ruben Neves is a booking away from missing a game. Carl Ikeme (cancer) and Phil Ofosu-Ayeh (hip) continue to be absent

Bolton Wanderers Preview

It is now seven games without defeat for Bolton though they have taken all three points on just two occasions. This run of form has lifted them off the bottom but they are still 23rd and need to starting turning some of the draws into victories. Away from the Macron Stadium, they are without a win this season but each of their last three have ended drawn. Sammy Ameobi has netted in two of the last three matches on his travels. Six of their last seven fixtures have seen both teams find the back of the net and in two of their four last four both have netted more than once. In five of their last six Bolton have conceded in the last 15 minutes.

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Mark Beevers is available again after suspension while Aaraon Wilbraham (hip) is close to a return. Jem Karacan (personal), Chris Taylor (unknown) and Andrew Taylor (back) are expected to miss out.
