Bolton Wanderers vs Nottingham Forest
English League Championship
Date: Wednesday, 24th October 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Macron Stadium (Bolton).
Bolton Wanderers hosts Nottingham forest in the hope of breaking their poor run of results.
Bolton are sliding down the table fast. The team moved to 6 points above the table and sits on 18th place. They picked just 6 points in their last 9 games and with this tempo they can quickly drop to the relegation zone. Wanderers are finding it tough to score and have just 2 goals in 6 games. They were not the most potent scorers even at the start of the season but now things have gone worse.
Last round Bolton earned a point away at Rotherham. Following a goalless first half the team had a chance to open the score from the penalty spot. Magennis missed it and the only logical thing happened then – Bolton conceded as Vaulks gave Rotherham the lead. Still Wanderers managed to get back level as Doidge scored 5 minutes before the end.
Aitor Karanka’s side looks better and improved from last season but there is still a lot of work to be done. Nottingham is not far from the playoff spots and will have its chance. The team needs to limit the slip ups against sides in the lower part of the table.
7 games unbeaten run came to an end last round for Nottingham. Not only that but the defeat against Norwich came at home. Forest have nobody to blame but themselves. They opened the score early as Grabban scored but they play from there on wasn’t impressive. They let Norwich control the game and eventually let their visitors to make a complete turnaround and win the game.

Bolton vs Nottingham Forest Predictions
Bolton are digging down towards the bottom of the table. The team sis having hard times scoring and Aitor Karanka will make it even harder for them to score. Nottingham are the ambitious side and are favourites here to get the points. The team hardly keeps a clean sheet away and Bolton may score despite their poor run.
