Bristol City vs Bolton Wanderers Match Preview
Bolton scored five goals in 33 minutes to turn around their FA Cup tie last weekend and could be good value to gain another positive result at Ashton Gate.
The cash-strapped Trotters are again in all sorts of trouble off the pitch but their team, and in particular striker Josh Magennis, should have gained confidence from their win over Walsall.
Trailing 1-0 at the break, Bolton eventually ran out 5-2 winners with Northern Ireland marksman Magennis bagging a hat-trick to end a personal 19-match goal drought dating back to mid-September!
Admittedly we are going against the grain in backing Phil Parkinson’s side to avoid defeat away to Bristol City, who knocked Premier League club Huddersfield out of the FA Cup.
The Robins are unbeaten in nine and in touch for a Championship play-off place, which may help to boost under-fire manager Lee Johnson’s popularity rating with the club’s supporters.
However, consistency is not City’s strong suit. They have shown this season that they are equally capable of going on unproductive spells as much as stringing a few wins together, as they have since the weekend between Christmas and New Year.
Something clearly clicked for Bolton in that second half against Walsall, albeit they were at home to a team from a division lower, and they may just be able to build on that performance.
