Bolton vs Blackpool
England – League 1
Date: Monday, 7 October 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET

Home advantage has been a myth for Bolton this season. With Blackpool boasting the second-best away record in the League One at the moment, the hosts have no reason to harbor any hopes of a win this weekend.

Bolton vs Blackpool Prediction
Keith Hill’s men have hit rock bottom in the table and the twelve-point reduction on their necks has further dampened the squad’s chances of climbing up the ladder any time soon. The hosts have not tasted success since the start of this season and have garnered no more than three points so far, that too through sharing the spoils.
Blackpool are on a much more positive run of form at the moment and are currently unbeaten in their previous three games in the League One. Their last clash at home saw them take down Lincoln with a 2-1 scoreline prior to which they picked a point off of Accrington in a 1-1 draw.
Furthermore, the visitors have not admitted defeat in any of their recent outings. Taking into account the dismal form that the hosts are on at the moment, even with home advantage intact, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Blackpool at the last blast of the whistle.
Additionally, Bolton are the least offensive team in the cluster as of now and have just two goals to their name, only one of which was at home. Considering that the away side have also scored not more than a goal at the most in each of their previous two trips on the road, you can certainly rule out any hopes of this clash turning into a high scoring one.
