Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams are unbeaten in their last four league games
  • Bolton won the reverse fixture 4-1
  • Four of the last five meetings between these teams at this ground have ended all square

Charlton much more resolute under Jackson

Bolton’s 4-1 victory in the reverse fixture at The Valley in September is unlikely to bare much relevance in this one. Charlton are a much-improved side on the one that Bolton thrashed at The Valley earlier in the season.

Johnnie Jackson’s men have been much sounder defensively since switching to five at the back, a formation he has deployed ever since he took over from Nigel Adkins as manger. Charlton will come into this full of confidence, unbeaten in their last four league games and unbeaten on their last five visits to this ground.

January window has been very kind to The Trotters

Bolton kicked off the new year with three consecutive defeats and were at risk of being dragged into a relegation battle. Ian Evatt acted quickly in the January window and the new recruits have proved just what the doctor ordered for a Bolton side who are now unbeaten in their last five matches.

Tough too split with both in good form

Both Bolton and Charlton’s races seem to be run this season. Both are on identical points tallies and the play-off contenders seem to have built up an unassailable gap. Both teams are in very good form of late and each will likely fancy their chances. There hasn’t been much to separate these two sides in recent years. Five of the last seven meetings have ended in draws and the draw percentage increases when these sides meet at this ground, four of the last five meetings at Bolton have ended all-square.

I will side with the draw in this one, its historically a close-run thing between these two sides and with both in such good form, I am having a hard time siding with one over the other. For my correct score prediction, I will go for a 1-1 draw.
