Charlton vs Bolton Prediction, Tips & Stats

Bolton Wanderers are up into fifth after a midweek victory over Forest Green Rovers on Tuesday with Ian Evatt's men set to head on the road to The Valley this weekend where Charlton Athletic are eyeing up the top half.

Bolton only edged past Forest Green by a narrow 1-0 scoreline after having just three shots on target. On the other hand, Dion Charles' red card after 28 minutes did force Wanderers to play with 10 men for most of the game, and this came just 18 minutes after Charles scored the game's only goal too.

Evatt's side are now in fifth but have to deal with the fact they've played more games than everyone else in the division besides first and third. Bolton's 28 games have seen them win 13 games and lose seven but net 35 times and let in 22 goals. At the same time, Barnsley in sixth have three games in hand over them and just a four-point gap to deal with, so Bolton are likely to lose their spot in fifth soon. Nevertheless, a chance in the playoffs is no doubt on the cards if their form can continue.

Charlton head into this one after beating another promotion hopeful, Barnsley. The club saw Tyreece Campbell net another goal, before Jesurun Rak-Sakyi scored a goal in the second half at The Valley that day. Charlton remain in 15th with a gap of 10 points on the bottom three in the table.

Charlton team news

Ryan Inniss and Clare were booked in the 2-0 win over Barnsley last weekend and they will carry on in the back four alongside Ness and Kane. Payne, Dobson and Fraser should all stay in the midfield three, but Payne is seemingly having to face a late fitness test. Eoghan O'Connell should start now alongside Macauley Bonne. Albie Morgan and Jayden Stockley didn't get any minutes in the win over Barnsley and should start here too. Corey Blackett-Taylor continues to work from the bench for Charlton and he and Aaron Henry are likely to get minutes from this position again.

Bolton team news

Dion Charles scored after six minutes for Bolton against Forest Green before he was sent off in the 28th minute. He now misses this game and Kieran Lee could come into the side instead. MJ Williams and George Johnston are both back for the club as well, while Shola Shoretire started on his debut on loan from Manchester United on Tuesday against Forest Green and he could play here. Kachunga should remain up top now because of Charles' suspension. The back three of Jones, Santos and Toal is likely to carry on here as well with no new injuries to deal with.
