Bolton vs Millwall – Championship: Two different objectives collide on the fight for the 3 points.
With a clear difficulty on the league table, Bolton is fighting to avoid relegation, and any point is fundamental for them.
After 3 consecutive losses, getting any point became even more urgent. With a record of 6 points conquered on the last 8 matches, they are dangerously close to the relegation zone.
However, they have a good opportunity to win some points here, playing in front of their fans, which is usually where they play better, conquer more points, scores more goals and concedes less goals.
They count with 22 goals scored at home and 25 conceded. It’s not a fantastic record but it is enough to think that they are capable of beating Millwall.
I should highlight that they’ve beaten Aston Villa at home, on their only victory of the last 8 matches.
They will be very motivated, even because on the past few years, Millwall has only won at their stadium once.
On the incessant quest for points that would allow them to reach the Premier League, this Millwall wants to continue the record they have recently, where they count with 15 unbeaten matches, scoring for 12 consecutive matches.
They have beaten Bristol at home, a direct opponent on the race, and they are now even more motivated for what’s left of the season.
They have been scoring consistently, and that has translated itself on the results obtained, with only 2 draws on their last 8 matches, with the other 6 being all wins.
With 20 goals scored and 21 goals conceded, this team has been conceding less on their recent matches and scoring more, they are aware of the difficulty and they have this match against Bolton at the best possible time.
Bolton vs Millwall – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With two teams in different moments of form, since one is fighting to avoid relegation while the other is battling for promotion, one has a high morale thanks to their good results recently while the other is under a lot of pressure and on the brink of descending onto the relegation zone.
I expect the visitors to get a positive result in this match because they can’t lose the promotion train and one slip-up would mean they would lose ground on that race.
