Bolton Wanderers Prediction – Can Bolton get off the mark?

Bolton Wanderers have only played 9 matches to date in this season’s League One but they sit bottom of the third tier with a points tally of -9 but they’ll be thankful for small mercies that they are still operating, unlike their Lancashire counterparts, Bury, who were expelled from the Football League a while ago.

The hosts have gained just 3 points so far in what is likely to be an extremely tough season for The Trotters who may well already be gearing themselves up for relegation down to League Two as they look to consolidate their future on and off the pitch.

Operating with a ‘skeleton staff’ for the first few weeks of the season, it’s a credit to Bolton that they took points off Coventry City 0-0, Oxford United 0-0 and a 1-1 draw with Sunderland, but it’s a worry that the hosts have scored just 1 goal in their first 4 home matches of the season, along with failing to win any of their first 9 matches of the campaign.

Bolton will try and pick up points wherever they can but they’ll be up against a strong Blackpool outfit who have had their own problems in recent years but are currently flying high in League One in 5th place.

Blackpool Prediction – Can Blackpool move up to 3rd spot?

5th placed Blackpool will make the relatively short trip to Bolton on Monday night where the visitors will be searching all three points off their Lancashire rivals as they seek to move up into 3rd place on the League One ladder.

Blackpool have enjoyed a successful start to this new League One campaign having shaken off the financial restraints of the former owners of the club, and The Seasiders are no doubt looking ahead to a much brighter future now that their off-field problems have eased.

The results are also starting to show as Simon Grayson’s men have lost just 2 of their first 11 matches of this new term, and bring a 3-match unbeaten run into this local derby on Monday night, having recorded wins against Doncaster Rovers and Lincoln City as well as a point against Accrington Stanley.

With just 1 defeat out of their last 6 matches away from home, Blackpool look a tough team to beat on their travels, and with forwards Gnanduillet (5 goals) and Delfouneso (2 goals) up front, they could cause Bolton real problems here.


Key-Facts – Bolton v Blackpool

  • Bolton have failed to win any of their first 9 matches of this League One season
  • Blackpool have lost just 2 of their first 11 matches in League One
  • Blackpool have lost just 1 of their last 6 away matches in League One


Betting Tips Verdict

Bolton’s lack of firepower up front could hold them back in this one against a strong and confident Blackpool outfit.
