Tip Reasoning

  • Bolton have won one of their last five matches
  • Sheffield Wednesday are unbeaten in their last four matches against Bolton
  • Sheffield Wednesday have lost one of their last nine matches

Injuries severely hinder Bolton’s chances

Ricardo Santos, Dapo Afolayan and Kyle Dempsey all picked up hamstring injuries during Bolton’s 1-1 draw at home to Portsmouth on Tuesday and are all doubtful for Saturday’s visit of Sheffield Wednesday. Bolton aren’t in the best form as is, The Trotters have won one of their last five, a run that extends to two wins from seven and those victories came against Crewe and Gillingham, hardly inspiring form. With several key men doubtful Saturday’s game, Bolton face an uphill battle in getting a result against a Wednesday side who will be full of confidence having just broken into the top six.

Owls fancied to sustain play-off push

Sheffield Wednesday and Plymouth are the two sides in League One’s top six that seem to be peaking at just the right time. The Owls have lost one of their last nine and will be buoyed by last weekend’s 92nd minute winner at home to Wimbledon. Sheffield Wednesday are unbeaten in their last four meetings with Saturday’s hosts and can take further encouragement from the 1-0 victory they recorded over Bolton at Hillsborough in October.

Bolton’s strength in depth will be tested on Saturday and I think they will come up short against a bang in form Wednesday side. Sheffield Wednesday in the outright market will form the main selection for this one and it ranks as one of my strongest fancies of the weekend. In the correct score market, I will chance a 2-0 away win.
