‘Not convinced’ – Blackpool vs Bolton Wanderers prediction: The72

The72’s writers offer their Blackpool vs Bolton Wanderers prediction ahead of their League One clash on Saturday afternoon.

The72’s writers offer their Blackpool vs Bolton Wanderers prediction ahead of their League One clash on Saturday afternoon.

Blackpool head into this weekend’s encounter with Bolton Wanderers following a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Peterborough United in the EFL Trophy semi-final.

The Seasiders were outclassed at Bloomfield Road as Malik Mothersille’s opener was followed by a Harrison Burrows brace to send the Posh to Wembley. The result is bound to have left a sour taste in Blackpool’s mouth.

Bolton Wanderers, on the other hand, were in League One action and recorded an important 2-1 victory away from home over Cambridge United.

Ian Evatt’s side had initially trailed at the Abbey Stadium through an Eoin Toal own goal in the first half, but Paris Maghoma and Carlos Gomes struck in the second half to secure a big three points in the third tier promotion race. Victory on Tuesday saw Bolton remain third in the League One table, but they drew level on points with 2nd place Derby County with a game in hand.

Here, a handful of our writers make their predictions for the game…

 

Jacob Hackett

Blackpool will not only be gutted by the result but by their performance against Peterborough during midweek. It was a huge opportunity missed to head to Wembley and it could easily have knocked some of the stuffing out of them.

“It will be a massive test of character to see how they respond back on home soil against promotion hopefuls this weekend.

“The Whites will take great confidence from their recent victory and will certainly look to take advantage of the Seasiders’ low morale to boost their goals of achieving a top two spot.

“I think Bolton might have a little too much for Blackpool on this occasion, so I’m going for an away victory.”

Blackpool vs Bolton Wanderers prediction: 0-2

Who is this?

 

James Ray

“After a tough loss in the week, Blackpool will be determined to bounce back this weekend. However, with Bolton Wanderers up next and Bloomfield Road, I’m not sure I see the hosts getting anything from this one.

“Only poor form from those above has kept the Tangerines in the play-off fight, but I’m not convinced of their chances in the top six fight or in this one.

“I’m going for a Bolton win.”
