Bolton Wanderers Prediction

Bolton Wanderers grabbed a vital three points towards their survival plan in the Championship on Saturday when they recorded a much needed 2-1 home win over fellow relegation rivals Millwall at the Macron Stadium, and The Trotters hold home advantage once again on Tuesday night when they take on Sheffield Wednesday.

Bolton had previously registered something of a shock result recently when they won 1-0 away at Birmingham City, but three defeats on the trot afterwards to Norwich City, Leeds United and Swansea City meant that Phil Parkinson’s side remained in the bottom three.

The recent home win over Millwall though now gives the hosts fresh hope of staging a great escape, and this victory also ended a miserable five match run without a home win, which included losses against West Brom, Preston North End and Norwich City.

These defeats were against teams that are flying at the moment away from home though, and the visit of a more circumspect and modest Sheffield Wednesday outfit should give Bolton a decent chance of walking away with something here.

Bolton’s home record stands at 4-4-10 12/26 and they’ve lost just three of their last seven at home.


Key-Facts – Bolton Wanderers v Sheffield Wednesday

  • Bolton Wanderers have lost just 3 of their last 7 home matches at the Macron Stadium
  • Sheffield Wednesday have won just 2 of their last 12 away matches
  • Sheffield Wednesday haven’t beaten any side by more than 1 goal to date away from home


Sheffield Wednesday Prediction

Although Sheffield Wednesday extended their unbeaten run in the Championship to nine matches overall, The Owls still remain in the bottom half of the division, sitting in 14th place ahead of what could turn out to be a tricky trip to face Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday night.

This nine-match unbeaten sequence is welcome news to Sheffield Wednesday fans after enduring a period of inconsistency under former manager Jos Luhukay, but whilst Steve Bruce has steadied the ship and tightened his side up at the back, Wednesday have managed just four wins from these last nine matches.

Five draws within this period, three of them away from home, give Bolton Wanderers a chance here, while Sheffield Wednesday’s overall away record stands at an underwhelming 5-5-8 19/29 which includes just two away wins out of their last 12 matches on the road.

Wins at Middlesbrough and Ipswich Town, both by narrow 1-0 margins, have been the highlights during this period, and although The Owls have lost just once in their last seven away matches, they haven’t dominated teams on their travels.

Betting Tips Verdict

This match may be a lot tighter than the odds suggest, and backing Bolton with the handicap here looks a good play.
