Bolton Wigan Team News Free Bets as Coyle and Martinez feel relegation pressure
Bolton v Wigan 15:00 Sat
The other six-pointer on this weekend of Premier League action sees 18th place Bolton who are odds against with Bet365, play hosts to bottom of the table Wigan Athletic.
Now, while everyone may a love a top of the table clash or a Super Sunday every now and then, it’s matches like these that often get overlooked in attention and can bring the best out of players.
Both sides will be scrapping for their very survival in a fixture that will have a massive hand in deciding which league both sides are playing in next season.
The match will see the Premier League’s second worst away defence of the Latics going up against the league’s worst home defence of the Trotters.
When playing at the Reebok Stadium, Bolton concede an average of 2.08 goals per game and will be striving to keep a clean sheet against Roberto Martinez’s dwindling Wigan.
Martinez would like to feel as if his side have something going forward seeing as their defence seems so poor but in actuality, his Wigan side score a lowly average of 0.83 goals per game when playing away.
Although elite skill and talent may not be on display on Saturday, there is a definite potential for goals in the fixture with both sides so eager to make the second halves of their seasons better than the first.
Roberto Martinez has stayed true to his attacking regime this campaign and has continued to play with three defenders despite leaking goals all season.
Two men looking to take advantage of this formation are January signings Marvin Sordell and Ryo Miyaichi, who could be clear to play tomorrow along with Gary Cahill replacement, Tim Ream, who could also make his debut for Bolton Wanderers after completing a move from New York Red Bulls.
