Bristol City vs Bolton Match Preview
Bristol City host Bolton for their 4th Round FA Cup clash in great shape after extending their 11-match unbeaten streak with five consecutive wins since late December, now surely hoping to build on it and make their way to the final 16.
Robins have beaten Rotherham (1-0), Stoke (0-2), Huddersfield (1-0 in FA Cup), Wanderers (2-1), and most recently Nottingham Forest (0-1) despite some very narrow contests along the way. They’ve seen goals coming from different directions but Lee Johnson based their success on tough defensive displays, which promises another tough challenge on the day.
Bolton took the lead but still saw a 2-1 loss on their Championship trip to Ashton Gate earlier this month, struggling to bounce back as West Brom (0-2) snatched all three points at Macron Stadium. Their struggles on the road have been overwhelming and could be even more worrying!
Wanderers haven’t earned an away win since August and just four draws in 12 trips hardly look encouraging, as they struggled to score goals on the regular. Bristol will now want to capitalize once again and we see them doing so amid a great streak of their own.
We will thus go for a Home win which feels like buying money for old rope at 1/2 with Ladbrokes, seeing many big hitters lumping. We have seen them in great shape lately and this should prove enough for a ticket to the 5th Round as well.
We’ve seen an unconventional head-to-head clash earlier this month and we don’t see the visitors getting on the scoresheet this time around, which has us going for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 5/6 with K8 too. We’ve seen six of Bristol’s last seven outings end that way and this looks like further evidence for such a bet.
