Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Following a slim 1-1 draw with Morecambe, Bolton will look to return to winning ways when they welcome Plymouth to their University of Bolton Stadium on Matchday 38. The Trotters are seven points behind the playoffs berth, meaning that this has to go down as yet another must-win game for the home side. Iceland international Jon Dadi Bodvarsson is pushing for recall after scoring a late winner in the midweek draw, while all Elias Kachunga, Josh Sheehan, and Lloyd Isgrove are out of contention with injuries. Kiean Lee is a major doubt.
The Pilgrims, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Morecambe and AFC Wimbledon. Plymouth are eager to stay in the playoffs berth, but beating Bolton on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. The likes of Galloway, Cooper, Scarr, and Lewis have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the away side.
Highlighted Player (Gethin Jones):
Born in Perth, Australia on October 13, 1995, Gethin Jones is a professional footballer who plays for Carlisle United in the League Two as a defender. Jones is a product of the Wrexham football school, but he played for Everton at youth level as well.
The pacey right-back made only one appearance for the Toffees as he played against Krasnodar in the Europa League 2013/2014 season. Gethin Jones played for the likes of Plymouth Argyle (loan), Barnsley (loan), Fleetwood Town, and Mansfield Town (loan) as well before joining his current club Carlisle United. Jones is eligible to play for Australia and Wales despite playing for the Wales U17, U19, and U21 teams in the past.
He made his League Two debut with Carlisle United in a 3-2 win over Stevenage on September 14, 2019. Jones’ main position is right-back, but he is used as both right midfielder and left-back as well. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Plymouth):
Nicknamed the Pilgrims, Plymouth are a professional football club that host their rivals at Home Park. The stadium, which can hold up to 18,600 people, was built in 1892 and opened the following year. Plymouth footballers wear dark green jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while light green and white are the dominant colours of their away kit.
The Pilgrims made it to the FA Cup semi-finals in the 1983-84 season, with the team advancing to the Football League Cup semis on two occasions (1964-65, 1973-74). The Pilgrims recorded their biggest win against Millwall on January 16, 1932, with the team beating the Lions 8-1, and they repeated the success in 1994 as they rolled over Hartlepool United in the Second Division.
The club suffered their heaviest defeat against Stoke City (0-9) on December 17, 1960. Fellow Devon teams Exeter City and Torquay United are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals.
