Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Sincil Park will host Tuesday’s football game between Lincoln City and Bolton Wanderers, the two teams who sit in the bottom of the League One standings. Situation in the Bolton dressing room is, undisputedly, much worse as they have collected only seven points from possible 66 (deduction included). The Trotters have several games in hand, but they are still 17 points behind the “safe zone” in the League One standings.
Bolton experienced all sorts of problems at the back in back-to-back losses to the likes of Burton Albion (3-4) and Rochdale (0-2), meaning that they are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Bolton. The Trotters are on a four-game winless run in the League One ahead of the trip to Lincolnshire, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Lincoln’s party at Sincil Bank. The hosts will not have a better chance than this to get back on course, therefore, home win should be considered.

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.
