Bristol City Prediction

Bristol City have emerged as one of the form teams in the Championship at the moment as Lee Johnson’s men have recorded five wins on the trot in all competitions and will no doubt be confident of maintaining their winning streak when they play host to Championship strugglers, Bolton Wanderers at Ashton Gate on Friday night.

Wins over Rotherham United, Stoke City, tonight’s opponents Bolton Wanderers and Nottingham Forest in the Championship have been complemented by a 3rd round FA Cup win over Premier League Huddersfield Town, and indeed, The Robins are unbeaten in their last 11 matches in all competitions.

The Robins are also unbeaten in their last six matches at home too, so the hosts will be eyeing off a place in the 5th round if the likes of forwards Diedhiou (8 goals) and Weimann (5 goals) can fire them up here.


Key-Facts – Bristol City v Bolton Wanderers

  • Bristol City have won their last 5 matches on the trot
  • Bristol City are unbeaten in their last 11 matches in all competitions
  • Bolton are without an away win from their last 12 matches


Bolton Wanderers Prediction

This will be the second away match on the trot that Bolton Wanderers will have had to make their way down to the west country to face Friday night’s opponents, Bristol City, having lost 2-1 in the Championship last time on their travels.

It’s been a wretched season for Bolton who have really struggled in their Championship campaign this term as The Trotters sit second from bottom of the second tier with a relegation battle on their hands in this second half of the season.

Bolton’s only respite during the difficult bread-and-butter of the Championship was a 3rd round FA Cup win over League One side Walsall with Bolton running amok in a 5-2 win at the Macron Stadium which brought a rare win for the home faithful.

However, switch to Bolton’s results away from home and you’ll find the visitors have suffered five defeats on the trot amidst an overall sequence of 12 away matches without a win as the visitors’ situation under manager Phil Parkinson is starting to look very bleak indeed.

Betting Tips Verdict

Bristol City are on a roll right now and should account for an out of form and beleaguered Bolton Wanderers outfit.
