Bolton vs Tranmere Match Preview
Tranmere travel to Bolton for their Matchday 31 clash on Saturday afternoon, just days after their mid-week clash against Sunderland, as they turn full attention to League One and look to plot an escape from the relegation zone – now sitting 21st with a six-point gap to MK Dons and three games in hand.
Rovers made it to 4th Round in FA Cup as they shocked Watford (2-1) in front of the home fans but they’ve seen a much more convincing Man United (0-6) last week, struggling to cope and seeing their fifth loss in nine games – with just three draws also on the records.
Bolton will now hope to capitalize on such a tough schedule on the rivals’ end but they’ve only ended a four-match losing streak of their own on Tuesday. They held off Bristol Rovers (1-1) at this ground as Daryl Murphy found the late equalizer, showing off as a tough side to outgun here.
Wanderers’ League One survival looks increasingly unlikely and Keith Hill will be desperate for pick-me-ups. His men earned 16 points in 14 home games so far and we hope to see a great challenge here, which feels very important if they’re to close the gap in an attempt to escape the rock-bottom.
We do see this one as a great contest in the making and we’ll now stick our necks out for Bolton to secure their fourth Home win this term, which comes at 31/20 with William Hill and looks like the best approach with Tranmere’s woes taken in the concern.
Still, they could be forced into an exciting game as they often are. We’ve been used to seeing goals at this ground and with that in mind, we’re now also going for Over 2.5 Goals FT which seems like a solid approach to the fixture at 21/20 with BetVictor.
