Bolton v Preston Match Preview
Bolton have taken just one point from their last six and four from the last ten and are down in 23rd place. Their major issue is a lack of goals having blanked in four of their last six and with no player who has scored more than four this season.
At the University of Bolton Stadium, Wanderers have lost just one of their last four but won just one of ten. Just one of the last eight have gone over 2.5 goals with seven of the last 11 going under 1.5 goals.
Preston have taken eight points from their last four fixtures and sit in 18th with 12 points between them and the relegation places. They have kept clean sheets in their last two and conceded just two in their last four.
Away from Deepdale, North-End have won their last two matches and four of the previous seven. Alan Browne and Brad Potts have both found the back of the net in each of their last two on the road.
Preston are the most likely winners of the match given their form and that of Bolton though I would not be rushing to back a side in 18th place at the current odds on offer. I think finding a way to side with North-End in other markets makes the most sense.
I like the visitors to score over 1.5 team goals as they have six from their last two on the road which includes four at QPR. Alan Browne and Brad Potts have two in their last two on their travels and both appeal though it is the latter at the bigger odds who gets the selection.
