Form Labs

Bolton v Hull, Saturday 27th October, 15:00

After such a promising first four matches, Bolton have reverted to the sort of form expected of them before the seasons’ start as they’ve since gone W1-D3-L6 over their last 10 games.

However, it isn’t as bad as it looks at first glance with four of those defeats coming against the current top-nine sides, while the victory came over an impressive Derby outfit.

That poor form has come down to their sub-standard output in the final third of the field, as they failed to open their account in five of their last seven as only Rotherham have scored fewer than them this season.

Their defence has given them some of hope however, as they’ve conceded just one strike or less in four of their last six, with only seventh-placed Forest firing three past them.

Understandably, they fare much better against the weaker sides in the league, going unbeaten from four matches against bottom-six sides, and while they drew three of these, none have been on home turf.

Hull have had an even worse time in the Championship this season as they’ve gone W2-D3-L9, including five defeats from their last seven winless matches.

Moreover, they’ve lost each of their last five on the road, including at bottom-three side Reading, netting just once across these fixtures as both the last two finished 1-0.

Bolton have failed to score more than a single strike in any of their last six at home but they did win two of these by the same scoreline, while both the Tigers’ visits here since 2015 have finished exactly the same.

Bolton 1-0 at 8.50*

Norwich v Brentford, Saturday 27th October, 15:00

The Canaries have come back from behind in each of their last two outings to leave them with six wins from their last eight matches.

Those results have seen them climb from 20th to the playoff spots and they’ll be keen to try and hold that position.

At Carrow Road in this time, they’ve won three of their last four matches, including victories over Wigan, Aston Villa and second-placed Middlesbrough, with only Stoke getting the better of them.

Brentford on the other hand, have recently lost their manager Dean Smith and they’re yet to win a game from two attempts under new man Thomas Frank.

In fact, their only road game under the Danish manager saw a then 22nd placed Preston put four goals past them, and with Norwich in such fine form we expect them to put the visitors to the sword.

Moreover, the Canaries have won three of the five meetings between the two sides across all competitions since the start of the 2016/17 season, losing just once.

Norwich Win at 2.35*

Sheffield United v Wigan, Saturday 27th October, 15:00

Sheffield Utd are currently level with Leeds and Middlesbrough on 26 points and deserve all the plaudits coming their way.

They’ve won four of their last six games as only Frank Lampard’s Derby could get the better of them at Pride Park, while they’ll be bitterly disappointed with their stalemate here against Stoke on Tuesday.

Wigan meanwhile, have relied upon their superb home form this season where 17 of their 20 points have come from, as they’ve lost five on the trot on their travels, despite the only top-half side they faced in this time being Norwich.

Coming up against a relentless Sheffield United side, we don’t fancy their chances.

The Blades have won four of their last six unbeaten outings on home turf and given the visitors have lost their only visit to a top-six side already this term, we’ll be getting behind Chris Wilder’s men to continue this great run.

Sheffield United Win at 1.64*
