Bolton vs Millwall
Date: Saturday, 9 March 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Macron Stadium (Bolton).
Bolton Wanderers are going through a turbulent period coming into a highly-important 36th round fixture against fellow strugglers Millwall. The match should have allegedly been postponed after Bolton chairmain Ken Anderson refused to pay salaries to team’s staff. The latest news reveals the payments were made and the match should kick off as planned on Saturday afternoon at Macron Stadium.
Nevertheless, we have to question the morale and atmosphere in Bolton’s dressing room. The team lost three in a row in the league and sit second from bottom with slim chances of avoiding the relegation at the end of the season. The Trotters are as many as seven points shy of the safe zone and the clash with relegation strugglers Millwall might be their last train to catch in the battle for survival.

Bolton vs Millwall: Prediction
Millwall are also struggling badly coming into this fixture. They’ve put their survival hopes in jeopardize after losing three consecutive league outings. The latest of failures came seven days ago when Neil Harris’ men fell 1-3 at home to leaders Norwich City.
However, the visitors can see this fixture as a huge opportunity to rebound from recent defeats and pick up salvation points by taking advantage of the situation in Bolton’s dressing room. We will go with the away win at 1.90 as the main betting option, while you can alternatively back the Under 2.5 goals FT at quite attractive 1.61 odds since none of past eight head to head affairs produced more than two goals.
