Bolton vs Portsmouth prediction for League One

In this article, you’ll get to see our exclusive Bolton vs Portsmouth predictions for gameweek 26 in League One. We anticipate a tight clash between the two teams with Bolton being the most likely victor.

Bolton to win

With a sensational performance in the last fixture versus Plymouth Argyle, Bolton Wanderers certainly showed they are no pushovers and that the battle for the title in League One is far from over as long as the Trotters are in the race. Portsmouth will set foot at the University of Bolton Stadium with high ambitions but the fact that coach Simon Bassey’s boys had to face Tottenham at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the FA Cup game might prove decisive in the outcome of the clash on Saturday as the visiting team will undoubtedly be tired.

Portsmouth – Under 0.5 goals

Plymouth Argyle are the team with the deadliest attacking trio and even they couldn’t penetrate Bolton’s robust defense. And Portsmouth are certainly far from Plymouth Argyle’s momentum at the moment. Pompey didn’t win a single one of the last five league clashes and it will be surprising if the players could even get anywhere near James Trafford’s penalty area.

Bolton – Over 1.5 goals

Sure, the goalless tie versus Plymouth Argyle was indeed admirable but it’s time for coach Ian Evatt’s boys to start scoring. Just like they bagged three against Barnsley on the 2nd of January. Bolton managed to score two or more goals in four of the last seven games and the Trotters faced some difficult opponents like Barnsley, Manchester United U21 team, Exeter City, and Shrewsbury.

Bolton

The Trotters are currently in 5th place in League One with quite a solid set of points – 41. After 25 league games, Bolton Wanderers recorded 11 victories, eight draws, and six losses which is undoubtedly one hell of a performance from the players that might just be enough to qualify them for the Championship.

Portsmouth

Pompey are one of the struggling League One teams this year. The 2022/23 campaign hasn’t been too kind for the players as they just can’t seem to find the right way to victory with five of the last league events all ending in either draws or losses.
