Match preview: Bolton v Wednesday

12 March 2019

Wednesday will be looking to go ten games unbeaten in the Sky Bet Championship this evening with a trip to Bolton.

The Owls have lost just one in 14 league games and found a new resilience under manager Steve Bruce.

His side head to the University of Bolton Stadium unbeaten in nine, a run which includes four wins, five draws and six clean sheets.

Bolton, meanwhile, are fighting for Championship survival and gave their hopes of avoiding the drop a lift on Saturday with a 2-1 win over relegation rivals Millwall.

But the Trotters have lost seven of their last ten league outings and are five points adrift of safety.

Phil Parkinson’s side have won four of their 18 home league games this season.

Sheffield Wednesday haven't completed a league double over Bolton since the 1982/83 season.

Here is’s match preview:
