Both Teams to Score
Third-placed Bolton welcomes tenth placed Carlisle, on February 20th 2021. Our first prediction for this fixture is backing both teams to find the net. In the reverse fixture played on 26th December 2020, the two teams drew 3-3 in a euphoric fixture that saw then Bolton midfielder, Peter Kioso pick a red card in the penultimate. Kioso has since moved to League One side, Northampton Town. Bolton has only kept one clean sheet in four of their last home fixture. The visitors have also scored in three of their last league games.

Match Review: Bolton’s Quest for Direct Promotion Continues
This fixture will be about team ambitions, and our fixture preview has more.
Bolton is third on the table and every win counts with four games to play. The hosts hope for a win after an inspiring comeback from 3-0 down in the reverse fixture to clinch a 3-3 draw at Carlisle. Bolton has not lost the last 10 home fixtures. We expect the hosts to give this game all they have to win.
After three straight victories from 30th March to 6th April, the Carlisle hasn’t won a game in their last three games. They travel to Horwich, England on Tuesday after three consecutive draws. Two barren draws in the last two games could be a sign of dwindling form. However, we expect the visitors to score having found the net in four of their last five away games.
