Match Preview: Bolton Wanderers v Rotherham United

Will Bolton lose again? Probably.

Bolton Wanderers take on a Rotherham United side with no win in their last 7 games. This poor run of form has left them in 20th on 22 points, one out of reach of Bolton should we win today.

Wanderers are on their worst run of form in the last 30 years with only the one win in 19 games. A loss today and a win for Ipswich Town could leave Bolton bottom of the league going into the New Year.

Team News

I can’t remember if we have played since Stephen Ireland ended his hugely successful Bolton career. Beyond that I am not aware of any fresh absentees.

Aparently someone called Sean Raggett will be back in contention for the visitors who otherwise appear to have no injury concerns.

Match Facts

Bolton have beaten Rotherham on their last three visits to the town. Recent form would indicate that this will be difficult to replicate. Bolton are winless in their last 6 home games managing just one goal from 66 shots, which is a rather impressive 0.015 conversion rate.

On the other side, Rotherham have not been enjoying their travels too much of late with 4 points from their last 5. This does though consititue a better return than their last 30 away games at this level. Small incremental improvements and all that.

Match Odds

Bolton win - 29/20

Draw - 21/10

Rotherham win - 21/10

Under 0.5 goals -13/2

Match Predication

This has dire written all over it. Call me an optimist, 0-0.
