Gillingham to Win or Draw

Bolton enters this fixture after tasting defeat to MK Dons on the road. However, they have won three of their last five fixtures. We expect the latter fate for the visitors at the Priestfield Stadium as Gillingham make their great escape from relegation. The Gills earned an away victory to Lincoln and will be confident against the Wanderers. The hosts enjoy a favourable history against their rivals, whom they beat 5-0 in the last iteration of this fixture.

Under 2.5 Goals

Bolton has been in good scoring form with 11 goals in their last five outings. We expect a reality check for the Wanderers as the Gills like to keep it low profile. Despite their poor status, they are thrifty at giving away goals. Eight of their last nine fixtures concluded with Under 2.5 total goals and we expect the same outcome for this league fixture.

Both Teams to Score: No

While Bolton has scored 11 goals, they have also conceded 8 in the process. On the other hand, the Gills have kept action to a minimum with four scored and three conceded. They will be the dominant team in home conditions and should force the issue as they see fit. Seven of their last ten competitive fixtures have only seen one side trouble the scorers. Expect only one side to get on the scoreboard as BTTS will not come to fruition in this meeting.

Gillingham vs Bolton Fixture Preview


After a season of mediocrity, the Gills have started to get out of their slumber. They have earned two wins and two draws from their last five fixtures, pushing to get out of the relegation slots. A win over the Wanderers sees them potentially move out of the danger zone provided other results go their way. They have the home advantage on their side but have an in-form opposition to tackle with.

Bolton Wanderers

Ian Evatt designed Bolton Wanderers’ return to League One action. The 40-year-old will want to solidify his managerial credentials with a playoff push in the current campaign. The Wanderers are in prime form with three wins from their last five outings. However, with two defeats in their last two away fixtures, there are genuine concerns if Bolton can close the gap between themselves and the playoff slots.
