Bolton v Bristol City Championship, 2nd February 8.00pm
Bolton are still with relegation issues on their mind, hovering just above the Championship drop zone. They have managed to go unbeaten in their last three on home soil though in the second tier. But they will be facing a rejuvenated Bristol City who snapped out of some poor league form with a good win last weekend.

Bolton v Bristol City Betting Tips
Bolton’s season isn’t going too well and they head into the weekend third from bottom in the Championship. However, given their recent form, with three wins in their last six, there is at least some hope of survival from them. It has certainly been much better from the side who collected only two points from their opening eleven league games this season. Low scoring games are a feature of Bolton’s matches though so under 2.5 goals at Betfair is a good place to start. Each to their last seven league matches have fallen below the goal line. Bolton are unbeaten in three home games in the league, taking back to back clean sheet wins over Cardiff and Hull, before playing out a draw with Ipswich in their last home games. So that’s pretty solid and they have lost only one of their last nine on home soil in the Championship (W5D3).
So there has been a huge improvement and they are averaging 1.2 goals per game on home soil this season and they have netted in each of their last three home fixtures. Their last four at the Macron Stadium have all gone under 2.5 goals. The Trotters do have a bit of home form going against the Robins having remained unbeaten in their last four home fixtures against them (W3 D1). However, they lost 2-0 at Ashton Gate against Bristol City earlier this season and they have failed to score in any of their last three against them now home and away. This will be just the sixth contest in the Championship between the two with things even at two wins each and a draw.
Now that the thrills of their epic EFL Cup run is done and dusted, Bristol City have one sole focus for the season, getting their promotion push going again. After a four-match winless streak in which they collected only one point, the Robins got a much-needed win last weekend in taking down QPR at Ashton Gate. That will have been a relief. They haven’t been in bad shape on the road in the Championship, as they have lost just two away games all season, but they are winless in three away from Ashton Gate (D2 L1) and that really all revolves around their Cup run. Looking at the big picture they are going to be hard to beat and they have averaged 1.4 goals per game this season on their travels. Given the lack of output from Bolton, both teams not to score at Betfair is going to appeal for this one. None of Bristol City’s last three games have made it over 2.5 goals. In the correct score market a Bristol City 1-0 is appealing at 6/1* (betting odds take on January 31st at 4:06 p.m.)
Who will win – Bolton v Bristol City Predictions
Bristol City will be looking for some big momentum now and that win over QPR last weekend will have been a big relief for them. They can use that as a stepping stone to push on now and should be able to follow it up with a win over the Trotters.
