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.

Bolton vs Sunderland: Head-to-head

Sunderland have a good h2h record against Bolton having won in 6 of their last 11 meetings, drawn 3 and lost just once.

However, Bolton have started pulling things back and they are unbeaten in the most recent 4 with a win and three draws.

The reverse of the current fixture was a thriller that ended all square on 3-3 score-line.

Bolton’s scoring record in recent encounters is impressive having netted at least twice in their last 4 h2h meetings.

Bolton vs Sunderland: Predictions

Bolton can be considered as the clear favorites to win this fixture. They look like a confident bunch in front of their home ground having lost just one Championship game during the last 11 at the Macron Stadium.

On the contrary, Sunderland are a team on low confidence, which is a situation created by their position at the foot of the table and the current win-less run of 4 games.

Back a home win for 2.40 odds here, which might come by the slight margin.
