Bolton vs Aston Villa Match Preview
Bolton suffered a third consecutive defeat last time out suffering a comprehensive 4-0 loss at Derby. They can have few complaints about the result as Wanderers seem to have accepted their fate of relegation. They are second bottom and at best can reach 44 points which will take a strange set of results to be good enough to keep them up.
At the University of Bolton Stadium, the Trotters have lost their last three and six of the previous eight. They have failed to score in three of their last five in front of their own fans and netted just three from these five. Their 13 home goals this season is the lowest of any side in the Championship.
Aston Villa are flying at the moment and a 2-1 home victory over Bristol City on Saturday was vital for their play-off hopes. It moved them four clear of Bristol City in sixth (though they do have a game in hand) and also marked an eighth successive league victory. The Midlands outfit will have marked the next two fixtures as one to take maximum points from as they end the season against Leeds and Norwich.
Away from Villa Park, Villa have won each of their last four and are unbeaten in five. Both teams to score, over 2.5 goals and a Villa victory has happened in each of their last three on the road. John McGinn has three from his last four on the road while Jack Grealish has two in four and Albert Adomah two in five.
Aston Villa should have few problems winning this game though you need to find a way to enhance the price. Derby ripped apart Bolton at the weekend and the visitors can do the same here so back them giving away a 1.5 goal start on the Asian Handicap. In addition, the Midlands side are scoring for fun while the Lancashire outfit appear to have thrown in the towel so back Villa to be ahead at half-time and again at the end.
