Bolton vs Sheffield Wednesday
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 12th March 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Macron Stadium (Bolton).
Wednesday is going through a good stretch of games, which has improved their chances of a top-seven finish at the end of the season. Their consistency has been a hallmark these last few months, with a sole loss coming in their last 11 match-days, and that too against Chelsea in the FA Cup.
This Tuesday, they are pitted against Bolton, the 23rd team in a league of 24. Bolton also holds the distinction of having scored the least number of goals overall, as well as at home.
They are already five points off the safety line, and with the dreaded consistency level of theirs (the last time they went two games unbeaten in a row was 15 match-days back), relegation is a major possibility.
Bolton vs Sheffield Wednesday Head-to-head (h2h)
- Sheffield found the back of the net in the last five games in a row.
- Wednesday remained unbeaten in both their encounters in 2018.
- Three of the last six matches at this venue saw the hosts failing to score.
- Four of the last six ties at the stadium had the visitors avoiding a loss.
Bolton vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction
Bolton lost three of their last four games and was winless in a mammoth 29 of their last 34 matches. At home, the team has just three wins in their last 14 ties. Meanwhile, Sheffield is unbeaten in their last eight fixtures and remained unvanquished in 15 of their last 17. On the road, they are on an unbeaten run of four match-ups.
To top it off, Bolton is the team that has scored the least number of goals in the competition, as well as in front of their home crowd. And finally, Wednesday stood unbeaten in both of these teams’ meetings last year.
Reading these facts along with the observation that Sheffield will be eager to see through that their momentum is ongoing, and with ten rounds remaining, will want to get to the playoff positions, a win for them is quite expected. And with Bolton’s frontline misfiring so much, it’s quite guaranteed that the first goal will come via Sheffield.
