Bolton Wanderers vs Shrewsbury Town

, KO: 19:45 Apr 16, 2024, Toughsheet Community Stadium
Shrewsbury Town

Bolton Wanderers continue their push for automatic promotion as they host Shrewsbury Town in a midweek League One fixture. Given their solid home record in recent weeks, Bolton should be too strong for Shrewsbury, who are struggling at the moment.

Bolton Wanderers head into Tuesday’s clash off the back of a 1-1 draw with leaders Portsmouth last time out in League One. They fell behind early in the contest but struck back through Aaron Collins before the break to settle for a share of the spoils.

That result means Bolton Wanderers are now unbeaten in eight of their last nine matches, although that run is split into four wins and as many draws. Ian Evatt’s men remain in the hunt for automatic promotion as they sit four points behind second placed Derby County with three matches left to play.

Bolton Wanderers have a solid home record as they are unbeaten in their last eight home matches, claiming five wins in that run. However, they often struggle to keep things tight at the back having conceded in five of the last seven in that run.

Shrewsbury Town were beaten in their previous League One fixture as they fell 2-0 at home to Wycombe Wanderers. They held their own for much of the encounter but fell apart after defender Tommy Flanagan was sent off midway through the second half.

It has been a rough period for Shrewsbury Town, who are winless in their last four matches. They continue to slip closer to the relegation zone and are now just six points above the bottom four.

One positive for Shrewsbury Town is that they appear to fare better on their travels having gone unbeaten in five of their last eight away matches. However, they were beaten 3-1 by Portsmouth in their previous fixture on the road.
