Form and Tactical Analysis
Fulham sits currently at 10th position. The team is not in the best possible form but still has a good chance to attack the top 6. Cottagers have 18 points which is 4 away from the play-offs. The main problem looks to be their home form. Just 1 victory in 6 games at home is not nearly good enough for a promotion candidate. The team hasn’t kept a clean sheet at home pointing towards a problematic defensive line.
Fulham returned to their usual 4-3-3 formation in the last 2 games. The team looks sharp up front but gets easily hit on the counter.
Bolton took twice more points in their last 2 games than they did since the beginning of the season. Home draw and their first victory got the team 4 points but that doesn’t change the fact that they are rock bottom of the table. 6 points in 13 games promises early drop unless the team improves.
Bolton left behind their defensive approach in recent games. They switched to a 4-2-3-1 formation which showed some good results.
Fulham vs Bolton: Head to head
Fulham leads the race here with 5 victories in the last 10 games. Bolton has 2 along with 3 draws.
At home Cottagers have won 4 and lost 1 against Bolton.
All 5 victories for Fulham came with clean sheets.
Fulham vs Bolton: Prediction
Fulham are the favourites here. They need to improve on that home form if they want to challenge for promotion. Bolton has just 2 points away from home and is the ideal occasion. They have scored just 1 goal in 6 away games. Fulham hasn’t kept a clean sheet at home this season but has a habit of doing so against Bolton.
