Middlesbrough vs Bolton
England – The Championship
Date: Wednesday 19th September 2018
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough).
Middlesbrough had got off to a positive start and it was only a few weeks ago that Tony Pulis’ side could boast of winning 3 games in a row. But there has been a speed bump in their journey of late which has seen the club draw against Leeds which was a decent result given that they were away from home and that game ended 0-0. But then at the weekend they lost to Norwich by 1-0.
Still the home side are in 4th place and just one point from the top so there isn’t too much to complain about. At the Riverside they have a perfect record so far, played 3 won 3 and they have not conceded a goal in any of those games.
Bolton lost at the weekend at home to QPR by 2-1 and this was seen as a poor result for the team. That latest defeat means they are in 10th place but if they were to win this game then they would be just a point behind that is how close the league is right now. The problem for Bolton is that they come into this game on poor form as they have no wins in their last 3 matches.
Middlesbrough vs Bolton: Head to Head

Middlesbrough vs Bolton: Prediction
Boro have hit a small rough patch but playing Bolton at home should be the perfect tonic to get them back on track and we will opt for the home win even if the price is quite short.
To boost this we will also back the correct score, which will offer us very good value. The home side will surely have too much quality in midfield and up front and Bolton have not played too well this season and do not like coming to this ground.
