Bolton Wanderers and Tottenham will be fighting it out for crucial Premier League points and Champions League qualification on Wednesday evening when they meet at the Reebok Stadium, as Bet365 offer free bets and attractive odds of evens on Harry Redknapp’s Spurs side to take all three points back to White Hart Lane.
Wanderers need the points to aid their relegation battle, while Tottenham are looking to finish the season strongly and book their place in the top four of the Premier League.
Focusing on Bolton to begin with, this is the game in hand that everyone has been talking about for them. As things stand, Owen Coyle’s men are in the bottom three but only on goal difference.
They have played a game less than their relegation rivals though and victory on Wednesday evening would see them go three points above the drop zone with two games remaining. A point in their final two matches would then be enough to secure Premier League survival.
Given the fact that Bolton have been in and around the relegation zone for the majority of the season, this would be a fantastic achievement. It is all about one final push for Wanderers and this clash against Spurs is extremely important for them.
As for Tottenham, they secured a much needed victory at home to Blackburn Rovers last time out and they need more of the same on Wednesday. Prior to this win, they had won just one of their previous nine league games and they can’t afford another run like this.
Instead, they need back to back victories to consolidate their position in the top four. After the slump they have had, this is now the priority to ensure they have something to show for their progress this season.
One thing that could affect the mentality of the players on Wednesday is the fact that their manager Harry Redknapp appears to have missed out on the England job with the FA speaking to West Brom boss Roy Hodgson about the position.
Tottenham would love to mark this news with three crucial points, completing the double over Bolton in the process after they defeated them 3-0 back in December.
One thing for sure is that this will be a competitive contest and there is no way that it will have an end of season feel. The points are crucial for both teams and there are plenty of other team’s fans watching on with interest.
It gets underway at 8pm on Wednesday evening.
