Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Bolton were struggling in the League One last term due to financial issues, and, as a result, they dropped to the League Two. The Trotters aim to secure a quick return to the English third tier, and they are seen as No. 1 favourites to finish the season atop the standings. Bolton play host to Forest Green in their opener, and we are positive that they will go for a win.
The Green Devils, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from the Carabao Cup loss to Leyton Orient. Forest Green were struggling in pre-season friendlies as well, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the promotion-chasing side. Former Crewe Alexandra attacker Shaun Miller, who joined the club 30 minutes before the Carabao clash against Bradford City (1-2), is likely to make his Bolton debut against Forest Green.
