Away Bristol City

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Lois Diony is a very talented striker and has a point to prove to those who doubt him, so I can see him and Bristol City scoring three or more goals in this one at 7/2.

2 We fancy:

Don’t be surprised if Bristol City carry on in their winning form this weekend with a solid 2-1 away win, priced at 8/1.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Bolton have only scored three goals once this season, but a Bolton 3-0 win is our long shot at 45/1.

Bolton Wanderers' Last Six:

Bolton’s last six: Won: 2 Drawn: 1 Lost: 3

Phil Parkinson’s side is relatively injury free going into this Friday Night Football game, with only Josh Vela out with an ankle injury. Apart from the injury to Vela, it’s likely that Bolton will keep the same side out that got a 1-1 draw against Ipswich last weekend.

Bristol City's Last Six:

Bristol City’s last six: Won: 1 Drawn: 1 Lost: 4

For The Robins, it looks likely that Jens Hegeler, Eros Pisano and Famara Diedhiou will miss out, but new signing from Saint Etienne Lois Diony is likely to make his debut following his loan move. If Diony gets in his stride, Bristol’s injury worries may be put to one side.

Bolton Wanderers vs Bristol City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Bolton host Bristol City just a point clear of the Championship’s bottom three

On paper, this looks like a fairly routine victory for the visitors but since their heroics against Manchester United in the Carabao Cup, Bristol City have only picked up eight points from seven games, with the only two victories coming home and away against QPR. Looking at the form sheet, a 1-1 draw at 11/2 looks likely.

However, Bolton could pose a threat to Lee Johnson’s side this Friday, seeing as they’ve picked up 10 points from their last six Championship games. Two of the wins in that run ended 1-0, so a 1-0 Bolton win at 9/1 could be good value.

That being said, Bristol City did get back to winning ways this past weekend at home to QPR, so a repeat of their 2-0 win at 17/2 in front of the Sky Sports cameras could be the way to go this week.

Predicted Score: Bolton Wanderers 0 - 2 Bristol City
