Bolton looked to have overcome a hurdle when earning their first victory in eight matches at Birmingham.
However, it has proven short lived as they were brought straight back down to earth by Norwich last time out in a 4-0 thumping, meaning they’ve now lost six of their last eight outings and Phil Parkinson has some serious regrouping to do.
Leeds In The Title Race
Meanwhile, Leeds have been ticking along nicely as other than a disappointing result of their own with the Canaries and a freak result hosting Hull City (where they dominated the proceedings with 72% of possession and 22 shots to their nine), they’ve won all their other six matches at Elland Road since November.
Marcelo Bielsa’s charges boast an impressive record against the bottom-six sides, winning six of seven unbeaten matches, though they couldn’t put more than two past anyone.
They did however concede just three times across them as they won to nil in each of the three at home, with two finishing 2-0.
Bolton Poor Against Top Six
That compares favourably to the Wanderers’ woeful record of eight straight defeats with the current top-six, as they shipped at least two goals in all but one of these games and failed to register in six, while three resulted in that same 2-0 scoreline.
Not to mention, only the two worst sides on the road this term, Rotherham and Ipswich, have registered fewer goals on their travels than Bolton’s 11 this term, while they have conceded exactly twice in two of their last three trips now at both Bristol City and Sheffield Utd.
Moreover, the Whites hold the third-best defensive record in the league this season on home turf, while they’ve netted twice in two of their last three here, and so we fancy a punt on the win to nil and the correct scoreline.
