Bolton Wanderers v Wigan Athletic tips – Trotters have to be backed at 2/1
Neil Lennon’s Bolton have won their last two home matches in convincing fashion
November 7th, 2014
Bolton might still be in the Championship relegation zone although supporters are confident that won’t be for much longer after Tuesday’s excellent 3-0 victory against Cardiff City.
Wanderers are certainly enjoying a new lease of life since Neil Lennon took charge, with the former Celtic boss overseeing three wins in five matches, with the Macron Stadium looking like becoming a potential fortress now that Dougie Freedman has left the Lancashire club.
It is a surprise to find Bolton available at odds of 2/1 with Sky Bet, with Liam Feeney grabbing a brace in the midweek encounter and the former Millwall and Bournemouth midfielder looks like taking his opportunity now that Lennon has taken charge.
Wigan are 19th in the table and there is no valid reason why they should be favourites to win the game, with Uwe Rosler struggling to make the same impact as last term when he steered the Latics to an FA Cup semi-final as well as the play-offs.
The visitors have won just one of their last eleven games and while that was victory away to a high-flying Derby County team, Tuesday’s 1-0 reverse at Brighton means that Rosler is under pressure coming into Friday’s match.
