Sheffield Wednesday Draw no Bet
Sheffield Wednesday are straining every sinew in their attempts to land a playoff spot this season and the Owls have tasted defeat just once in their last nine League One assignments during a fine late surge. Darren Moore’s in-form side will kick-off Saturday’s test at Bolton as favourites, however, Wanderers have lost just one of their last nine matches at home and that makes backing Wednesday in the draw no bet market a safer option to pursue.
Under 2.5 Goals
Bolton’s fixtures have routinely been low on action over the past month with six of their last seven matches producing under 2.5 goals and some robust defending and lacklustre attacking have combined to keep the score down in the majority of their games. Wanderers have the tools to keep margins slim again when Wednesday visit Greater Manchester, just like they did in the first meeting between the clubs which ended 1-0 in the Owls’ favour in October.
Lee Gregory to Score Anytime
Sheffield Wednesday striker Lee Gregory was the match-winner when the Owls beat Bolton 1-0 six months ago and the 33-year-old has the nous in the penalty area to make a similar impact in this weekend’s return fixture. Gregory scored his second effort in as many games against Wimbledon on Tuesday and he the sharp finisher can strike again on Saturday.
Bolton vs Sheffield Wednesday Match Preview and Team News
Lloyd Isgrove, Andy Tutte, Marlon Fossey and Josh Sheehan are all out injured for Bolton, while midfielder Kieran Lee is considered a doubt. In better news, Declan John, Kyle Dempsey and top scorer Oladipo Afolayan all shook off knocks to play in Wanderer’s 1-1 draw with Portsmouth on Tuesday evening and all three should be available again this weekend.
Sheffield Wednesday have fitness concerns over Josh Windass, Liam Palmer, Tyreece John-Jules and Dennis Adeniran this week. The Owls struck late to beat Wimbledon last weekend, though they were one of the few clubs in League One to enjoy a clear midweek schedule, which should do wonders for the energy levels in their ranks.
