Bristol City 3/5 to beat Bolton in Saturday’s Championship matchup

Competition: Championship

Market: Bristol City win

Odds: 3/5 @ Bet 365

With the chance to really make up ground on the playoff positions, Bristol City will welcome relegation contenders Bolton to Ashton Gate on Saturday.

Starting with Lee Johnson’s Bristol City side, after picking up a 1-0 win over Huddersfield last weekend and booking their spot in the fourth round of the FA Cup, spirits are at a season-high around Ashton Gate. Now winning their last three matches on the bounce and with the opportunity to jump up to seventh in the Championship table, Johnson will also be boosted by his sides recent stability at the back. The Robins have now gone over 300 minutes without conceding a goal and are unbeaten in their last nine outings, a run that stems back to the end of November.

As for the visitors, in stark contrast to Saturday’s hosts, Bolton still remain firmly at the heart of a relegation battle this season. With a string of off-field issues, Bolton now sit three points adrift of safety in the Championship. Now managing to pick up just one league win since the 29th of September, it will be their form in the final third giving Phil Parkinson the biggest headache. The Trotters have now scored in just one of their last six league matches and hold the worst defensive record in England’s second-tier. Now losing their last four away matches on the bounce, we’re backing another tricky afternoon for Bolton.
