Coventry vs Bolton Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The reverse fixture had ended in a goalless draw, and then Coventry were on the road.
  • Since 2016, the teams have fought just thrice, and the last encounter before that year had come back in 1998. From 2016, Bolton hold a 100% unbeaten record.
  • However, of the total 22 h2h encounters so far, Coventry have stood unbeaten in 18.
  • The biggest h2h win belongs to Coventry. A 1-5 road win in the Premier League.

Coventry vs Bolton Prediction

Coventry recorded a 1-2 comeback win on the road the last match-day, against Bristol Rovers. It was their tenth unbeaten game in a row, and showed all the signs of how serious the team was about their Championship ambitions. 

In the meantime, Bolton recorded a 2-0 rare win at home the prior game week, against Tranmere. However, keep note that the guests were a fellow relegation-battler, and as per current form, were the worst team in the road as well.

Bolton have faced complete meltdown this season. They were deducted 12 points by the Federation, and almost experienced an implosion. As of now, they are the dead-last placed team in the table, and are 17 points below the relegation cut-off. Keep note that they have a total of 11 points on the board.

On the other hand, Coventry are unbeaten in their last 11 overall fixtures, and were so in 22 of their previous 24 match-ups. They are also on a run of ten unbeaten home fixtures, and remained invincible in 21 of their previous 22 appearances here.

Importantly, Coventry are just two points off a direct-promotion spot, and just five away from the pinnacle of the table. Taking these observations into account, rightfully count on Coventry to post a commendable win this Saturday.
