Bolton Wanderers vs Barnsley Predictions


Considering the fact that Bolton Wanderers are so well organized in the backline, I predict a low-scoring contest in which at least team will keep a clean sheet.

  • Bolton Wanderers have seen under 2.5 goals in 10 of their last 12 matches.
  • Bolton Wanderers have seen BTTS No in 14 of their last 16 home matches.
  • Bolton Wanderers have seen under 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 7 home matches against Barnsley.

Head to Head


In 24 matches between these two teams, Bolton Wanderers have won eight times, there have been 12 draws and Barnsley have won four games.

Bolton won their last meeting 3-0 in February of this year.

Bolton Wanderers Form


Bolton finished in fifth place on the table, five points behind Barnsley, which qualified them for a position in the playoffs. In 46 games, they were able to amass 81 points.

Bolton come into this match after back-to-back wins over Fleetwood and Bristol Roves. 

In their last game, they secured a 3-2 away win over Bristol Rovers with Shola Shoretire, Dan N'Lundulu and Aaron Morley scoring goals.

In their past ten matches, the Trotters have only suffered one defeat.
 

Barnsley Form


As a result of their fourth-place finish in the standings with 86 points, Barnsley were able to clinch a spot in the playoffs.

The Tykes are heading into this semi-final first leg having not won any of their previous three matches.

Peterborough, who required the victory to also get a berth in the playoffs, defeated them in their most recent last weekend.

Verdict

Bolton have seen under 2.5 goals in their recent matches, so I’m tipping them to get the same result here. BTTS No has also been a familiar theme at the University of Bolton Stadium of late too.
