Bolton Wanderers vs Sunderland
English League Championship
Date: Tuesday, 20th February 2018
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Macron Stadium (Bolton).
Bolton lost 2-0 to QPR on the weekend and are coming on the back of consecutive defeats. But they are likely to put that out of their mind because they do pose a decent record at the Macron Stadium. They are unbeaten in the last 5 at home with 3 wins and 2 draws. The fact that boost their morale is that they picked points against the likes of Cardiff, Fulham and Bristol City, the teams sitting inside the promotion play-off zone.
On the other hand, Sunderland are at the risk of getting relegated for a second consecutive season. The team is sitting at the foot of the table with 26 points, needing another 4 to move into safety.
The weekend saw the Black Cats losing 2-0 at home to Brentford and got their win-less run stretched to four games. They lost 3 in the period and the new manager Chris Coleman seem to have his work cut-out. On top of these, Sunderland are one of the worst away sides in the league after picking a humble 8 points from the 16 outings so far.
