Competition: League One

Market: Bolton win

Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has been a real purple patch, Bolton will host a struggling Morecambe on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, although Bolton might now be a real underdog in their bid to claim a play-off spot this season, the Whites are enjoying what has been a real purple patch. Laying down another marker over the weekend and storming their way to a 3-0 romp away at Gillingham, the former Premier League outfit have collected nine points from their last four League One outings. Smelling a golden chance when they return home on Tuesday night, Ian Evatt’s men have managed to prove that their 2-0 loss against MK Dons last month was just a minor blip. Likewise, it should also be highlighted that Bolton have continued to shine with their displays in Horwich. Including a 3-1 win against Lincoln last time out in front of their own supporters, the midweek hosts have won each of their previous six home fixtures on the spin.

As for the visitors, hit with a deserved 2-0 loss away at Plymouth over the weekend, it is fair to say that Morecambe find themselves in the midst of an extended struggle. Despite making the step up to League One last summer, the Shrimps have largely failed to deal with the step-up in class and are in a real battle to avoid the drop this season. Opening Tuesday’s fixtures sat two points adrift of safety, the one-time Bradford boss has seen his side fail to win any of their last eight outings, a run that stems all the way back to January 22nd. Even more worrying, including that 2-0 defeat away at Plymouth a few days ago, Morecambe have lost each of their last four contests away from the Mazuma Stadium. Given the recent gulf in class, we’re backing a home victory here.

Bet: Bolton 4/6 to beat Morecambe in Tuesday’s League One matchup @ 888sport
