Bolton vs Wigan Prediction

The visiting team has the advantage in this fixture. Bolton is currently languishing at the 23rd spot in the table. They have scored just 12 goals so far in their league campaign, which is the least of all the 24 teams.

Wigan will see this match as an opportunity to play as the favorites, which is quite a rare thing for them. Against a team which has recorded just four wins so far in their entire league season, Wigan fans will not be satisfied with anything but the three points.

Wigan will play out this match with their hearts on their sleeves. They will look to improve their goal difference as well. Bolton has scored just one goal in their last five league matches at home, five in the last 10 and six in the last 15. In return for the six goals, in the 15 matches, Bolton conceded 22 goals.

It is highly unlikely that both teams will get on the score sheet for this match.
