Bolton Wanderers vs Bristol City
England – Championship
Date: Friday, 2 February 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Macron Stadium (Bolton).
Bristol City’s Championship campaign paid the price of the League Cup successes as playing multiple fronts has certainly affected their league displays of late. Nonetheless, the Robins have managed to return on the winning ways now that they’ve suffered the Carabao Cup elimination to Manchester City losing both legs only narrowly by a single-goal margin.
Lee Johnson’s men defeated Queens Park Rangers 2-0 last weekend to bounce back and keep ground on the likes of Derby County and Cardiff City in the battle for the second position which leads directly to the elite next year. Kit will be interesting to see if the Robins will be able to back up the fine display from the match with the Hoops at Macron Stadium where they should come into the game as favourites given Bolton’s most recent spell of form.
The hosts have lost three and drawn one of last four matches (including the friendly against German Magdeburg) proving out to be fairly easy to break down. The Trotters are thus only one point above the drop zone line at this stage and they will also be desperate for the result and upset against the promotional candidates here.
Bolton Wanderers vs Bristol City: Head-to-head
Bristol City have been super inspired in the last couple of meetings with the Wanderers netting eight and conceding no goals in back-to-back wins.
Overall, the Robins have won 12 of 21 H2H encounters with the Trotters.
None of last three H2H meetings saw both teams on the scoresheet.
Bolton Wanderers vs Bristol City: Prediction
Bristol City will have a nice opportunity to back up the fine performance from the last weekend’s win over QPR and we doubt Lee Johnson’s side will fail to take advantage of Bolton’s form here.
Since the Trotters have found it tough to score in the most recent set of H2H matches against the Robins, we’ll go with the visitors to keep a clean sheet as well at the odds of 2.62.
