PICK: Blackpool to Win

REASON FOR THIS PREDICTION

hese two sides met in a Premier League clash at Bloomfield Road back in 2011, now they are clashing in the third tier of English football. Their reunion threatens to be a short one, as these two sides are moving in very different directions. Blackpool have playoff ambitions after entering the weekend in sixth, while Bolton are rock bottom of the table.

The hosts are 18 points shy of safety after playing just nine games, as they sit on -9 points. They have picked up just three points so far this term, which suggests that League Two beckons for the side recently relegated from the Championship. Bolton have been in disastrous form in 2019, while it has been a few months to forget on and off the pitch. They head into this one without a win, while the bookies don’t expect that to change.

Blackpool have made a solid start, having paved a path for Bolton down the line. The visitors stood up to their owners, while they are now thriving after winning that battle. The club have moved back into the top six in League One, while they were just three points shy of the top two before the weekend fixtures. Now they are aiming to strengthen their promotion hopes with a victory at the bottom side.

Blackpool have a couple of victories to their name on the road this term, while they’ve impressed in recent weeks. The visitors have won two of their last three games, while they have the second-best away record in the third tier. The Seasiders have lost just once in six trips this term, while they head to a Bolton side who are struggling to compete at this level.

The Trotters have taken just three points from nine matches in the third tier. They head into this one with five defeats in seven matches, while the hosts are really struggling to get goals. They’ve scored just twice all season. That could well be their downfall here, as Blackpool head into this trip with nine goals in six away trips. They’ve scored in five of their six trips, while Bolton have found the net in just 22% of their matches.

We expect Blackpool to have too much for the hosts, as Bolton are showing little sign of turning their form around. Blackpool are worthy favourites heading into this one, as their away form should see them edge out goal-shy Bolton. We’re backing an away win here, while we’re predicting a 1-0 victory for the visitors.
