Bolton to Win

Our first Bolton vs Port Vale prediction is for the hosts to grab the win. Considering that Bolton are undefeated in their last 11 home league games (W8 D3) and they were able to win 6 of their last 7 matches in all competition this tip is far from random. To add to that, Port Vale’s away form had been poor for some time – (W1 D1 L4).

Clean Sheet – Bolton

Bolton are currently enjoying a run of 9 consecutive home clean sheets. They have conceded just 8 goals in 17 home league matches played. At the same time, Port Vale were unable to score in 5 of their last 7 away league games. Due to all that with our second Bolton vs Port Vale prediction we pick a clean sheet for the home side.

Bolton to Score First

With our final Bolton vs Port Vale prediction we pick the hosts to score the first goal of this match. Bolton had been in front at halftime in 3 of their last 4 home matches. At the same time, Port Vale are notoriously slow starters. The Valiants have scored just 3 goals in the opening 30 minutes of matches so far. Also, they don’t score their first goal on the road on average until the 60th minute.

Bolton vs Port Vale Lineups and Other News

Bolton

Bolton lost 0-1 on their visit to direct rivals for promotion Wycombe last weekend. This saw a run of 5 consecutive league wins stopped. Bolton’s mood improved immediately though as on Tuesday they beat Accrington 2-0 in an EFL Trophy semi-final. This booked Bolton a final at Wembley later in the year.

The quick turnaround could be an issue for Bolton as they are missing 4 sidelined players and this limits the options for rotation. Among the absentees are the influential defenders Johnstone and Iredale + star playmaker Williams. Also, 3 others are considered doubtful, including aggressive attacking midfielder Dempsey.

Port Vale

The Valiants have achieved just 1 win in the last 9 rounds while losing 6 of the other 8 matches. This prolonged poor run of form ended all promotion hopes.

Returning from injuries Holden and Butterworth could be considered for starting roles in this game. The options in attack are limited though as the 2 main wingers Ojo and Odubeko are doubtful. Also, the team’s second-best goalscorer Wilson (4 goals) is a long-term absentee. Port Vale are also missing the injured main centre-back Jones and in his absence, the Valiants struggled defensively.
