Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Barrow and Bolton, the two bottom-table sides, take on each other at Holker Street in what is expected to be a close encounter. The newcomers do not seem to be competitive at this level, with the team collecting only three points from possible 18. Barrow had no more than one shot on target in a 1-0 loss to Harrogate, and seeing that Lewis Hardcastle is likely to miss the match with injury, home win should not be considered.
The Trotters made a slow start to the season as well, and, as a result, they are sitting in the danger zone ahead of the trip to Cumbria. Both teams are eager to grab something from the midweek clash, and seeing that they seem to be evenly matched at the moment, share of spoils is on the horizon. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be experienced attacker Delfouneso, who scored his second goal of the season in a 2-1 loss to Oldham.
Highlighted Player (Antoni Sarcevic):
Antoni Sarcevic is a professional footballer who plays for Plymouth Argyle in the League Two. Born in Manchester, England on March 13, 1992, Sarcevic wears the number 7 shirt with the Pilgrims, and his preferred foot is right. The 185-cm tall footballer started his youth career at Manchester City, but he did not see any game action with the Citizens at senior level.
Antoni Sarcevic played for the likes of Woodley Sports, Crewe Alexandra, Chester, Fleetwood Town, and Shrewsbury Town before joining Plymouth Argyle . He made his debut with the Pilgrims on January 31, 2017, in a 2-1 defeat to Yeovil Town, while scoring his first goal for the club in a 1-0 victory over Cambridge United on February 4, 2017.
Antoni Sarcevic’s primary position is central midfield, but he is capable of performing well as both attacking and defensive midfielder as well. Sarcevic has dual citizenship as his father is of Serbian descent.
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.
