For our Bolton vs. Ipswich prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
We have a huge game at the top of League One this weekend as Bolton Wanderers host Ipswich Town.
Bolton Wanderers currently sit 5th in League One with eighteen wins, nine draws and nine losses from thirty-six games.
After an inconsistent first half, The Trotters have been impressive post-World Cup break as they find themselves in a good position to secure a top six finish this season.
They do enter this game amidst a slightly concerning run of form, though, having won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five matches.
Their most recent game saw them held to a 0-0 draw against Morecambe, a poor result given The Shrimps are currently in the relegation zone. The point at Morecambe also followed a 3-1 defeat at Portsmouth so there will be concern that Bolton are about to enter a slump.
Their home form is still extremely strong, however, and they're coming into this game having won each of their last five consecutive home matches.
Bolton are six points clear of Wycombe Wanderers in 7th but have played two games more. They're still in a strong position but they need to ensure they don't enter a sustained run of poor form so a win here is vital, despite how tough it may be.
Ipswich Town currently sit 3rd in League One with nineteen wins, twelve draws and four losses from thirty-five games this season.
The Tractor Boys have had a campaign season by most accounts this season even if there is some frustration at having held 2nd place for the majority of the campaign, only to be usurped by Sheffield Wednesday in recent weeks.
They enter this game amidst a very strong run of form having won their last four games on the bounce without conceding a single goal, with the overall aggregate score totalling 12-0.
Their most recent game saw them put Accrington Stanley to the sword in a 4-0 win. Admittedly, this four-match run has seen them face only relegation contenders but to dispatch them with such aplomb will do wonders for their confidence heading into this huge game.
Ipswich's away form is a huge concern, however, coming into this game having won one, drawn two and lost two of their last five matches on the road.
These two sides drew 1-1 when thyme on they met on the opening day of the season and an identical result would be no surprise here. I win for Ipswich will be tough given Bolton's strong home record but a draw, and even less so a defeat, doesn't do them much good.
