Fleetwood vs Bolton Wanderers Tips and Prediction
This season, Bolton has become one of the EFL’s most erratic teams, blending both long winning streaks and unsuccessful spells in equal measure.
Bolton still has a strong chance of finishing in the top six of League One, despite the disappointment of their FA Cup loss to Barnsley.
This is true even though they have only won twice in their past seven games, victories over inferior opponents Accrington Stanley and Burton Albion. Last Saturday, Ian Evatt’s team was also held at home by an ineffective Cambridge United team.
Positively, a clean sheet was maintained after Bolton allowed six goals in three league games. However, the team needs to find a means to consistently score more goals after barely scoring one goal per game in the third tier.
With only six goals from eight away games, Bolton will only inspire their hosts, who also need to find another gear, as they go to the North-West coast.
Although Fleetwood is currently eight points clear of the relegation zone, Scott Brown will still be conflicted at the fact that 10 of his 18 league games as manager have ended in stalemates.
Fleetwood can be happy with their current position of 16th after finishing in the 20th rank during 2021–22, but a string of victories would put them in the running for the playoffs.
The Cods have gone five games without losing in all competitions, and their most recent point came last Saturday when they scored a 94th-minute equalizer at Bristol Rovers.
Fleetwood’s win-draw-loss record on the road is now exactly the same as it was at Highbury, thus they will need to improve on their two victories and five draws in their home stadium.
Bolton is the slight favorite to win on Saturday after losing both of their previous two games. However, we cannot discount the number of draws that Fleetwood record, which is another point of concern for us. A draw here is what we see.
