After suffering three consecutive Championship defeats amid continued off-field issues, the Bolton players will be aware that another loss on Friday will condemn the club to relegation into League One. The Trotters have conceded at least twice in those last three games and have registered just one clean sheet this year. Hosting in-form Aston Villa will be a very difficult task as the visitors have won eight consecutive games and claimed three points against Bristol City last weekend when the 2-1 scoreline did not reflect the superiority of Villa. An away win is tipped.
Off-field events after the game overshadowed the importance of Barnsley’s return to winning ways when they beat Fleetwood 4-2 at Oakwell last weekend. The Tykes did benefit from the dismissal of an opposition player during the second half, but they have now won six League One matches at the venue during 2019 where they are also unbeaten this season in league action. Visitors Shrewsbury will arrive in Yorkshire seeking a third successive away victory but their 2-0 victory at Gillingham last weekend almost ensured that the club will not be relegated. Barnsley could clinch three vital promotion points.
Despite their current lower mid-table in League Two, Crewe have been a decent team at Gresty Road for much of the season where they have won two of their last three matches. Sandwiched in between those victories was a 3-1 home defeat by Cheltenham when they were reduced to ten players for most of the second half. Having beaten bottom team Notts County last weekend, the Railwaymen now host 23rd placed Yeovil with the visitors earning just one point from their last seven fixtures. After scoring just three goals on the road this year, another defeat is likely for Yeovil.
Results elsewhere and a 1-0 win at Harrogate ensured that Boreham Wood retained their National League status last weekend, although they may wish to claim a first win on home soil this year before the season finale. However, visitors Salford are chasing automatic promotion and have won eight of their last nine matches with just one goal conceded since the beginning of March when beating Bromley 2-1. This momentum is expected to be maintained by Salford and they are tipped to win another game.
Two successive losses culminating in a very late 3-2 defeat at Solihull last weekend confirmed the relegation of Havant & Waterlooville from the National League, and they have won just one league fixture since late January. By contrast, a 1-0 home defeat by Dagenham was a first loss for Ebbsfleet since the beginning of March and a blow for their hopes of securing a promotion playoff position. This fixture has now become a must-win game for the Fleet and despite off-field wages issues, they should claim maximum points.
