Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After sharing the spoils with Salford City at Peninsula Stadium, Cheltenham Town will be aiming to return to winning ways in the League Two when they welcome Bolton at their Whaddon Road. The Robins suffered their last defeat in the league back on November 3, with the team losing to Oldham Athletic, and it is no surprise bookies see them as favourites to win the midweek fixture. In their last home game in the League Two Cheltenham outplayed Exeter 5-3, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Bolton.
The Wanderers, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs in the first half of the season, but given their defensive displays in back-to-back losses to Port Vale (3-6) and Walsall (1-2), home win should definitely be considered. Both Peter Kioso and Arthur Ghahoua are sidelined with injuries for the visitors, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Robins.
Highlighted Player (Chriss Hussey):
Born in Hammersmith, England, Christopher Hussey is an experienced defender who plays for Cheltenham Town in the League Two. After spending his youth career at the likes of Woking and AFC Wimbledon, Hussey continued playing for the Dons at senior level.
He played for a number of English clubs in the past, but, no doubt, the most notable one is Sheffield United. Chris Hussey made seven appearances for the Blades in the League One, but nowadays he is a League Two player. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
It has to be noted that he was called up for the England C team as a standby. Christopher Hussey made his Cheltenham Town debut on August 21, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He scored his first goal with the Robins in a 4-2 loss to Mansfield Town.
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.
