Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Bolton and Salford City go head to head at University of Bolton Stadium in the opening match of day 12 of the 2020/21 League One campaign. The Trotters aim to bounce back from the FA Cup loss to Crewe, and a win over Salford will see them move away from the danger zone. You should bear in mind, though, that Bolton have registered no more than one win at home ground in the 2020/21 League Two campaign.
The Lions, on the other hand, aim to climb to the playoffs berth, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Friday’s football game. Considering that Salford City were more than unfortunate not to grab something from the game against Cambridge United, missing a number of clear-cut chances to score, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the promotion-chasing team.
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 (Salford):
Founded during the Second World War (1940) as Salford Central, the League Two side play their home games at Moor Lane. The stadium, which was opened in 1978 and renovated in 2019, can hold up to 5,108 spectators. The Lions wear red jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and black are the dominant colours of their away kit.
Salford City secured promotion to the League 2 at the end of the 2018/19 as they defeated Flyde 3-0 in the National League play-offs final. The match was played at Wembley Stadium, with Touray, Pergianni, and Dieseruvwe scoring for the Lions.
In the 1977/78 season Salford City won their first Manchester Premier Cup trophy, with the team repeating the success the following year. Bury are seen as the club’s main rivals, but their rivalry with the likes of Oldham and Rochdale is pretty big as well.
