Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Cheltenham Town and Bolton go head to head at Whaddon Road on day 45 of the new League One campaign. The Robins experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Lincoln, but the defeat did not hurt them too much as they are stuck in the middle of the table. All Freestone, Bonds, and Sercombe are pushing for a start as head coach Michael Duff should opt to make changes to the team that suffered the loss on Monday.
The Trotters missed out on a playoffs place as well, but their display in a 3-1 win over Accrington is surely giving fans a reason for optimism. Considering that both sides will be with guards down in Saturday’s clash, punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Iceland international Jon Dadi Bodvarsson should be recalled to Bolton’s starting line-up after finding the net against the Accy Stanley.
Highlighted Player (Chris Hussey):
Born in Hammersmith, England, Christopher Hussey is an experienced defender who plays for Cheltenham Town in the League Two. After spending his youth career at the likes of Woking and AFC Wimbledon, Hussey continued playing for the Dons at senior level.
He played for a number of English clubs in the past, but, no doubt, the most notable one is Sheffield United. Chris Hussey made seven appearances for the Blades in the League One, but nowadays he is a League Two player. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
It has to be noted that he was called up for the England C team as a standby. Christopher Hussey made his Cheltenham Town debut on August 21, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He scored his first goal with the Robins in a 4-2 loss to Mansfield Town.
Highlighted Team (Bolton):
Bolton Wanderers were formed as Christ Church Football Club back in 1874 and three years later they adopted their current name. The Trotters currently compete in the Championship and they play their home games at Macron Stadium, which was opened in 1997.
Speaking of the club’s trophies, Bolton Wanderers won the FA Cup on four occasions (1923, 1926, 1929 and 1958), but they have yet to win the Premier League title. The Trotters were producing splendid displays in the 2003/2004 Premier League campaign, with the team finishing the season in eighth position in the standings, which is regarded as the club’s best result in the English top flight.
Bolton did well to reach the UEFA Cup knockout stages in the 2007/2008 season; the English outfit eliminated Atletico Madrid in the two-legged tie, but Sporting Lisbon eventually proved to be a big catch for the Trotters.
Nigeria international Jay-Jay Okocha is one of the most notable footballers who played for Bolton and he scored 14 goals in 124 appearances in the league for the club. Bury are considered the club’s fiercest rivals.
