Bet UK’s Bolton Wanderers Away Day Guide
Swansea travel to Bolton for the first time in 6 years on Saturday 10th November. The sides last met in April 2012, with 2 early goals enough to settle the game as a 1-1 draw. Bolton were relegated that year, before being relegated again in 2016. Bolton gained promotion at the first attempt and have remained in the Championship since.
Bolton’s strong start to the season has been overshadowed by their recent form. Wanderer’s were 3rd after 5 games, but 1 win in their next 7 games was enough to send them deep into the bottom half of the table. At the moment, relegation doesn’t seem to be too much of a worry, but the Championship can very quickly drag teams into the bottom 3. If you are making the trip up to the University of Bolton Stadium, then Bet UK’s Bolton Away Day Guide has all you need to know.
