- Both Teams to Score – Yes @ 8/13 (1.62)
- Anytime Goalscorer – Alfie May (no odds available yet)
These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Cheltenham Double Chance
Bolton pushed their unbeaten run to six games with Monday’s win over Accrington Stanley, though Wanderers head of steam could be capped at Cheltenham on Saturday. Town have won three of their last four matches at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium, while only one side has left that venue with maximum points in the last ten League One tussles hosted there. That immense record suggests Cheltenham are under-priced in the double chance market this weekend.
Both Teams to Score
While we expect Cheltenham to dig a positive result out of Saturday’s skirmish, they are unlikely to keep a clean sheet against a Bolton side that are a reliable force in the final third. Wanderers have notched at least once in all but one of their last nine fixtures in League One, though it’s also worth noting that Cheltenham have scored in 90% of their last ten matches on home soil. With those runs combined, backing both teams to register again could be a savvy ploy on Saturday.
Alfie May to Score Anytime
When Cheltenham and Bolton drew 2-2 back in November, Alfie May managed to bag both of Town’s efforts in Greater Manchester. The 28-year-old has scored an impressive 21 times overall in League One this season and May should be front and centre when the chances present themselves again on Saturday, making him a great option in the anytime goalscorer stakes.
Cheltenham vs Bolton Match Preview and Team News
Matty Blair, Ben Williams and Dan N’Lundulu have all been ruled out for Cheltenham this week, while Charlie Colkett remains a doubt. Town were beaten 3-0 at Lincoln on Monday in a somewhat surprising heavy defeat. Michael Duff’s side are a much more reliable unit on their own patch, however..
Bolton have several injury issues to contend with this week, with Ricardo Santos, Kieran Lee, Lloyd Isgrove, Marlon Fossey and Josh Sheehan among those on the sidelines. Kyle Dempsey and Andy Tutte are both rated as doubtful in midfield too. Wanderers cruised to a 3-1 win over Accrington on Monday without that clutch of absentees.
