BLACKBURN VS BOLTON (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 22.04.2019

Scoring two goals in each of their last three games, Blackburn Rovers are looking for four consecutive wins after beating QPR last time out. Yet although they’ve claimed back-to-back home victories just twice this season, Rovers have conceded the second-fewest goals in the ten-game home form table (W5, L5 – GF:12 GA:6).
However, they have lost five of the previous six home games in which they conceded, with each defeat ending 1-0. In fact the ‘Riversiders’ have lost 85.71% of their Championship home games where they failed to score, with 61.9% of their games at Ewood Park featuring under 2.5 goals (W9, D6, L6).
Despite recently ducking administration, Bolton’s club record 27 Championship defeats this term, as well as only four away wins, means the division’s second-highest conceders (74) will be wandering in League One next season.
Bolton have managed just three away shutouts so far, losing 42.86% of their awaydays to-nil. Furthermore, a 4-0 hammering at Derby in their last away trip saw the ‘Trotters’ concede two or more goals for the 27th time this season in all competitions.
Nevertheless, these teams’ last four H2Hs have seen under 1.5 goals with Bolton retaining the better historical record (W70, D38, L63). Victorious in just 27.38% of their 84 visits to Blackburn, which of these north-west rivals will have the last say of 2018/19?
Players to watch: As well as scoring in the 1-0 reverse fixture, 14-goal Bradley Dack (BLA) has three goals from his last six games. Meanwhile, Callum Connolly netted Bolton’s last goal (own goals excluded) five games ago.
Stat attack: Their last three matchups produced 22 yellow cards and one dismissal.
Blackburn have scored 78.57% of their home league goals during the second half.
Bolton’s average of 0.76 goals scored per Championship away fixture is the division’s second lowest.
