Blackburn vs. Bolton Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

Blackburn has been handed a match it should win this week when it hosts 20th placed Bolton at Ewood Park in a bottom-of-the-table Premiership clash. A win in this match would put Blackburn 1 point away from escaping the relegation zone.

Blackburn vs. Bolton Trends Analysis

Blackburn has won six of its last ten matches against Bolton Wanderers, while two vcitories have gone the way of Bolton and two matches have produced draws. Bolton has won at Ewood Park once during this period, last defeating Blackburn at home in 2006.

Bolton’s last visit to Ewood Park produced a 1-0 win for Blackburn.

Blackburn remains mired in the relegation tar pit, with four defeats and one win to show for its last five matches. The fact that these results were recorded against mid-table clubs suggests strongly that Blackburn is destined for a fight for top flight survival as the season progresses.

Blackburn has scored a respectable enough 7 goals in its last five fixtures. This effort up front has been undermined by very poor defence, with 11 goals conceded in the same period.

Bolton’s results make Blackburn’s look impressive in comparison. The club has last five matches in a row, and has lost eight of its last ten fixtures. The only thing that may give the Bolton faithful some encouragement is the fact that the club has achieved two of its three victories this season away from home.

Bolton boasts the most toothless attack in the Premiership this season, with just 2 goals scored in the club’s last five matches. With the strikers failing to make their presence felt, the defence always had their work cut out, but have hardly covered themselves in glory, with 11 goals conceded in the same period of time.

Blackburn vs. Bolton Betting Tips

While both teams have awful defence, Blackburn looks better equipped to exploit the weak defence of their opponents in this match. Throw in home advantage and a strong head-to-head record against Bolton and you’d have to back Blackburn to win this match – or at least draw.

With this in mind our Blackburn vs. Bolton betting tip is to take a lay bet on Bolton at Betfair to earn a return off a draw or the Blackburn win.
