Bolton Wanderers v Swansea City Match Preview

Bolton Wanderers v Swansea City Match Preview

Swansea City travel up to Bolton as they look to bounce back from a 2-1 defeat to Rotherham. After 2 wins on the bounce, the Swans suffered a late defeat but still remain within touching distance of the play off spots. Bolton on the other hand, are without a win in 6 and sit just 1 point outside the relegation zone. Despite a positive start to the season which put Wanderers in 3rd after 5 games, Phil Parkinson’s men are in serious danger of dropping back into League 1.

Jack Grealish opened the scoring after just 4 minutes, rounding Ben Alnwick in goal before slipping the ball into an empty net. Jack Hobbs nearly grabbed an equaliser, but it was James Chester who would increase Villa’s lead after the break.The centre half headed in at the back post, after already having a goal disallowed, to send Wanderers home with nothing. The defeat leaves Bolton both winless and goalless in their last 3 games, and in 20th place with 16 points.

Last Time Out In The Championship

Swansea conceded 2 penalties in the last 15 minutes in their 2-1 defeat at Rotherham. Swansea took an early lead through Oli McBurnie as the Scotsman continued his recent fine form. Daniel James played the striker in from the left, giving him an easy finish over the Rotherham keeper. Bersant Celina should have doubled Swansea’s lead but couldn’t find a way past Marek Rodak after beating the offside trap. The equaliser would come after Kristoffer Nordfelt was harshly judged to have fouled Jamie Proctor, with Ryan Manning dispatching the penalty. Just 8 minutes later, Rotherham had another penalty as Leroy Fer handled in the area. Manning scored again to secure 3 points, leaving Swansea in 9th on 23 points.

Bolton and Swansea don’t have an extensive head to head record. In fact, the 2 sides have only faced each other 3 times in the last 25 years, and they were all within 6 months during the 2011/12 season. In that 6 month stint, results were shared evenly, with a draw and a win for each side. The last time the sides met was also at Bolton, with the match finishing 1-1. 2 goals after 15 minutes from Scott Sinclair and Chris Eagles settled the game as neither side threatened a winner. The result left Bolton in the relegation zone as their drop down the divisions began.

Swansea To Win To Nil

Swansea might have lost their last game, but they have been dominant in their last 3 matches and should beat a Bolton side that just cannot score.
