Bolton vs Sheffield Wednesday Match Preview

Bolton boosted their survival hopes with a 2-1 home success over Millwall at the weekend that ended a three-game losing run. They are still second bottom but the gap to safety is now just five points.

At the University of Bolton Stadium, the Trotters have won just one of their last five and two of 13. The 12 goals that they have scored at their own place is the lowest of any side in the division.

Sheffield Wednesday battled out a point at Derby last time out to stretch their unbeaten run to nine matches. A tendency to draw is somewhat of a problem as they seek a late march to the top six with five of the last seven finishing all-square.

Away from Hillsborough, the Owls are unbeaten in four with the last three ending in draws and the last two in score draws. Dominic Iorfa has netted in each of his last two appearances on the road.

The visitors are strong favourites to win the game and while Wednesday seem the side most likely to come out on top a tendency to draw too many (five of their last seven) means I would look elsewhere for the value.

Over 2.5 goals would go against the trends somewhat for these sides but it has happened in the last three at this ground and with both sides needing to win we could get an unexpected goal feast here.

Both sides have scored over 60% of their goals after the break and as stated before both will be looking to win so back most goals to come in the second 45 minutes.
