Crystal Palace vs Bolton: Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips-17th January 2017

Crystal Palace vs Bolton Wanderers
FA Cup – Third Round Replay
Date: Tuesday, 17th January 2017
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 GMT
Venue: Selhurst Park, London.

Just the way we predicted, Bolton Wanderers were able to force a replay by earning a 0-0 draw when they played hosts to Crystal Palace on 7th January. Palace are in some trouble courtesy of a poor form in Premier League and are outside the relegation zone due to a superior goal-difference with Hull City. Bolton on the other hand are promotion candidates in League One, the third tier of English football.

Crystal Palace were thrashed 3-0 in their weekend Premier League trip to West Ham, extending their win-less streak to 8 matches in all competitions. Moreover, they have tasted victory just once in their last 16 competitive matches. And they lost 11 matches during the period, a daunting rate of 68.75% of the games.

Bolton Wanderers are also coming on the back of a defeat; at home against Swindon by a 1-2 margin. And they are now winless in the last three games in all competition, but 2 of those are draws. Their away form could worry the head-coach Phil Parkinson as they were only able to win once in the last 4 outings. The Wanderers are positioned third in League One at a 6 point gap from league leaders Sheffield United.
