Competition: League Two
Market: Eoin Doyle to score anytime
Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport
Knowing that three points on Friday lunchtime can briefly push them into the top-three, Bolton will host relegation worriers Colchester.
Starting with the hosts, picking up what could turn out to be a crucial 1-0 win away at Forest Green last weekend, Bolton find themselves enjoying a glittering run of form. Knowing that victory on Friday can push them into the automatic spots, The Trotters are unbeaten in each of their last 12 League Two contests, collecting a hugely impressive 32 points. Once again bagging the winner against their promotion rivals last week, it is well worth keeping an eye out for the red-hot Eoin Doyle. Playing a vital role in Bolton’s charge for a third-tier return this year, the former Swindon striker has now found the net in back-to-back appearances and has racked up 16 League Two strikes this season. Also getting himself on the scoresheet in six of Bolton’s last eight home fixtures, Doyle should be confident of extending on that run this week.
As for the visitors, while Bolton might find the mood in their camp at a real high, the same cannot be said for a struggling Colchester. With many in their camp still looking over their shoulder at the drop zone, the Essex outfit are enduring a nightmare run of form. Only continuing to freefall down the League Two table, The U’s were last seen getting hit with a 2-1 defeat against Bradford on home soil. Without a win in their last seven straight contests and showing a host of issues at both ends of the pitch, Colchester have also remarkably recorded just a single victory across any competition since way back on December 8th. Also yet to score a single strike on their travels since opening up 2021 and with just a single away win to their name this season, there is no doubt that Friday’s guests face an overwhelming test on paper this week.
