Cardiff – Bolton Tips & Predictions For Today, February 13, 2018.
League: England – Championship
Tip: Over 1.5 Goals
Match Result: 2:0 WON!!!
|If Cardiff are to reignite their challenge for an automatic promotion spot, then failure to beat Bolton in this game is simply not an option. Neil Warnock’s men approach this game with good momentum, as they are unbeaten in four Championship matches.|
|With 38 wins out of a possible 77 in the all-time series, Bolton have the upper hand. However, they have experienced mixed fortunes in their three visits to Cardiff City Stadium so far, with a win, a draw and (most recently) a loss.|
|Bolton would move to 33 points with a win, which is significant. Only one team out of the fifteen relegated from the Championship over the last five seasons has gone down, after getting 33 points from 31 games.|
|The visiting Lancastrians have their own agenda – victory would not only secure a league double over Cardiff for the ninth time since 1925, but also put five points between themselves and the drop zone.|
|Cardiff have led at half time on nine occasions this season – and won every time! Bolton should abandon hope if they are trailing at half-time, as they have won just once in their last 13 away games in the Championship.|
|Players to watch: Gary Madine (CAR) takes on his old club and will look to open his account at the third attempt.|
|In the opposition dugout, midfielder and former Bluebird Craig Noone (BOL) makes his first visit to Cardiff as an opposition player.|
|Stat attack: Games between the two sides are never short of goals – only two out of the last eight meetings have seen a total of under 2.5 goals scored.|
|Cardiff are incapable of keeping a clean sheet against Bolton it seems, with none in the last five meetings, four of which have seen Bolton score first.|
