Hull City v Bolton Wanderers betting tips – Sorry Wanderers set for another defeat
Hull City can pile the pressure on struggling Bolton at the KC Stadium on Saturday
December 11th, 2015
Hull City may have slipped from title contention following back-to-back defeats to Derby County and Leeds United but they are still enjoying a decent enough season. Manager Steve Bruce is still confident of steering his side back to the Premier League at the first time of asking, although the Tigers trail Championship leaders Brighton & Hove Albion by six points and a win is desperately needed.
Step forward Bolton Wanderers. The Trotters should provide little in the way of serious opposition for the home side on Saturday, given that they are sitting firmly at the foot of the table with just 12 points to their name. Their one and only victory since the start of the season was a 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers in early September and it will be a huge ask to expect them to get anything from their trip to Hull.
Indeed, the Tigers have the third best attack and third best defence in the Championship, although the supporters are beginning to grow a little concerned about the side’s promotion prospects.
Let’s be realistic though. Hull have been in tremendous form this season and despite suffering a setback, they remain very much in contention for promotion back to the top flight. The side have also been struggling with injuries of late, however several key players will be returning in the weeks ahead.
Nevertheless, the threat which Bolton pose shouldn’t be taken lightly. The Trotters are having a torrid time of things this season and will be desperate to climb away from the bottom of the table, although their biggest task at the moment may well be just remaining in existence. Indeed, the problems both on-field and off-field at Wanderers has led to suggestions that boss Neil Lennon may decide to quit the Lancashire side. Unsurprisingly, Bolton are outsiders to win at 7/1 with BetVictor.
All of this will be music to the ears of Steve Bruce, who will be desperate for his side to return towards the top of the table. A six point gap is far from insurmountable and three points at home tomorrow would help their cause no end, while keeping the pressure very much on the Championship leaders. With Bolton managing a mere two points from their nine games away from home this season, coupled with Hull losing just once at the KC Stadium, we firmly believe that the visitors will be sent packing with their tails between their legs. Back the Tigers to win on Saturday at 1/2 with Paddy Power.
