Bolton vs Ipswich
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 6th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Macron Stadium (Bolton).
Two of the bottom-most teams take on each other in this relegation battle. Just 21 points are left to play for, and Ipswich is really the more aggrieved one. They are at least 13 points off safety, and all season they have made just 24 points from 39 matches. They are more than sure to get the boot to League One and is extremely demotivated.
Bolton needs to make up five points to avoid playing in the lower division next season. They might not get a better chance than this to go after their objective. They are at home and are taking on easily the worst team in the competition. It’s a rare occurrence in the Championship, where Bolton is the favorite.
Bolton vs Ipswich Head-to-head (h2h)
- It’s been seven years since an away team recorded a win.

- Three of the last five meetings saw the hosts of the day recording two or more goals.
- Only once has Bolton failed to record a goal in front of the home crowd.
Bolton vs Ipswich Prediction
Ipswich is the worst team in the league, period. They remain the only team yet to score 25 points, while everyone else has crossed 30. They have recorded just three wins from their 39 league games so far, and just one on the road from 19 attempts.
On top of that, it’s been seven years since a road team took three points in an h2h encounter. Ipswich is also on a streak of 14 winless matches on the road and lost eight of their last eleven.
In addition, Bolton considers this game their safest option to make some progress to get themselves off from the exit list, and considering their nearest competitors have tough games this weekend, we can rely on them to avoid a loss at all cost, and most probably the team will be taking the three points on offer.
Also, Ipswich failed to score in nine of their last fourteen away ties, and road teams failed in that regard as well in seven of the last ten h2h encounters. Additionally, taking into account the seriousness with which Bolton approaches this game, expect a clean sheet from the side.
