Bolton Wanderers vs Plymouth Argyle

, KO: 15:00 Apr 2, 2023,
Plymouth Argyle

Bolton Wanderers and Plymouth Argyle put aside their League One squabbles as they square off in the EFL Trophy final on Sunday.

Bolton Wanderers have been near perfect in this year’s EFL Trophy, failing to win just once, during the earlier stages of the competition. They saw off the likes of Barrow and Portsmouth and claimed a 2-0 victory over Accrington to secure a place in Sunday’s clash.

Although they are fifth in League One and still in the mix for a promotion playoff finish, Bolton appear to have lost their way lately. Ian Evatt’s men are winless in their last four matches across all competitions, with two defeats and two draws in that run.

Plymouth Argyle have also had an impressive EFL Trophy campaign and are yet to taste defeat in the competition. They overcame the likes of Charlton Athletic and Bristol Rovers on their way to Sunday’s clash but needed penalties to see off Cheltenham Town in the semi-final.

It has been an all-round dominant campaign for Plymouth Argyle, who remain the team to beat in League One. They are one point clear at the top of the standings and are well on course to secure automatic promotion to the Championship.

A piece of silverware will give Plymouth Argyle confidence for the season run-in and they head into Sunday’s clash in good form. They have won four of their last five matches across all competitions and claimed a 2-0 victory at Accrington Stanley in their previous League One fixture.

How the bookies view it

Bolton Wanderers surprisingly have a slight edge among the bookies and are priced at 32/21 by SBK to claim the win. A victory for Plymouth Argyle is valued at 17/10 with William Hill while a draw is set at odds of 12/5 by BoyleSports.

Head to head

Plymouth Argyle have never lost or conceded a goal against Bolton Wanderers with four wins and a draw from five previous meetings. Both teams have already had their two League One meetings this season with Plymouth claiming a 2-0 victory in the first fixture before playing out a 0-0 draw in January.

Players to watch

Ryan Hardie has been one of the standout players for Plymouth Argyle and is their leading scorer with 13 League One goals this season. The forward has also found the net in the last two EFL Trophy fixtures and is priced at 23/10 by Paddy Power to find the net on Sunday.

Plymouth Argyle are just as solid at the other end of the pitch and are yet to concede a goal in five meetings with Bolton Wanderers. They have also kept clean sheets in their last two matches and could be set for a repeat at 9/4 with bet365.
