Shrewsbury Town vs Bolton Wanderers Tips and Prediction
Under the leadership of manager Steve Cotterill, Shrewsbury has had a respectable 2022–23 season thus far, earning 26 points from 20 games in League One.
The Shrews have won two games in a row across all competitions, and they’ll be aiming to improve on that this weekend when they face Bolton at home.
Last time out, goals from Luke Leahy and Tom Bayliss helped Shrewsbury defeat Lincoln City 2-0 and move up to 13th position in the standings.
Shrewsbury recently advanced to the third round of the FA Cup after defeating Peterborough United 3-1 in the previous round.
Depending on other outcomes in the division on Saturday, a victory over Bolton may propel Shrewsbury as high as eighth in the league standings.
With Ian Evatt in charge, Bolton has been in strong form this year and currently sits fifth in League One as they target a promotion to the Championship.
The Wanderers have gone unbeaten in their previous four games across all competitions, but three of those games did not end with a clean sheet, which is a problem that needs to be fixed.
Dion Charles’ equalizer in the 94th minute helped Bolton earn a 1-1 draw against Bristol Rovers in their most recent game, much to the relief of their fans. Bolton will be expecting to improve on their road performance when they travel to Shrewsbury on Saturday with only three victories in nine efforts on the road in League One this season.
If Bolton wins, they may overtake Barnsley, another team vying for promotion, and move up to fourth in the standings.
We anticipate both teams to generate a lot of opportunities in a game with a lot on the line as they try to gain the upper hand.
Bolton will narrowly prevail in this situation and continue to make progress toward being promoted from League One.
