Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wycombe and Bolton, the two Wanderers, face each other at Adams Park in the opening match of the 2019/2020 Championship season. Wycombe Wanderers finished the 2018/2019 League One season in 17th position in the standings, only three points clear of bottom four, but it has to be noted that they were unbeaten in pre-season. Gareth Ainsworth’s troops aim to take advantage of the fact that Bolton are in serious financial trouble and given the away team’s poor form in pre-season, home win should be considered.
The situation at University of Bolton Stadium is alarming ahead of the opening match of the season and seeing that the Trotters are considered one of the main contenders to drop to the League Two, we are tempted to put our money on Wycombe, who produce fine performances in front of home fans.
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.
