The discussion about a spy scandal is still raging in the English football lower house. The trigger was that Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa, before the match against Derby County, a spy, armed with binoculars and wire nippers, sent to the training railing of the Rams, but this stupidly got caught. Bielsa therefore convened an already legendary press conference last Wednesday to explain itself for more than 70 minutes with translators, power points, spreadsheets, excel sheets and video clips. The essence of the whole: Bielsa so far spied on every opponent, although it would provide him no new information, but much more to calm his conscience, to have really done everything in the opponent preparation. To all who find his actions morally reprehensible, Bielsa addressed apologetic words.
Football Betting Prediction Bolton vs West Brom
After all, now determines the Football League, although there are no rules for such operations. Nevertheless, some experts are already demanding a point deduction. This would in turn for Premier League relegated West Bromwich Albion (Table 4, 47 points) interesting. After all, Leeds is a direct competitor to the climb. Opponents Bolton Wanderers (23rd, 22 points) currently has other concerns. Financially, the trotters are in trouble. The salaries for November and December were paid by the Professional Footballers Association but have since been reimbursed. Sporting threatens again the descent into League One. Accordingly, Bolton against West Brom, according to odds of bookmakers, only outsiders on a threesome on Monday night from 20:45 clock (live at Dazn and Sky Sports England). The fans may use the live game for protests against club boss Ken Anderson.
Bolton – Statistics & Current Form
Bolton won just one of the past 17 championship games (four draws, twelve defeats) and since the 4th matchday only drove twelve out of a possible 69 points. So it is hardly surprising that the Trotters are on one of the three relegation places for months. Despite the miserable record Bolton has the opportunity to leave the relegation zone with a win, because the residue on the saving bank is currently only three points. Last season, Bolton jumped the descent on the last day just so off the shovel. Coach Phil Parkinson has yet to perform miracles again this season, so Bolton will not be competing in League One for the second time in the past three years. Bolton is against West Brom, of course, according to our forecast, not a favorite, although the Monday balance sheet of Trotters reads consistently positive.
From the past seven league games that took place on a Monday, Bolton drove 17 of a possible 21 points. In contrast, however, are the devastating numbers of the current season. In 14 championship games the Trotters scored no own goal (league minus). In addition, Bolton is the worst home team this championship season. The Trotters drove in the 13 home games only twelve points and scored at least home league goals (eight). That’s why at Bolton against West Brom our forecast goes away win.
Best scorers in the championship:
- 4 goals: Will Buckley
3 goals: Sammy Ameobi

Expected formation of Bolton:
Alnwick; Grounds, Beevers, Wheater, Olkowski; Murphy, Lowe; Ameobi, Noone, Buckley; Magennis

West Brom – Statistics & Current Form
In August, the two Football League founding members West Bromwich Albion and Bolton Wanderers met for the first time since the first ever season in English football in 1888 on each other. Bolton shocked the Premier League relegated and surprisingly won the Baggies. However, looking at the record of the last five seasons that West Brom did not play in the top English league, West Brom rose four times when the first game of the season was lost. The only time when West Brom won on Matchday 1 did not go up. Accordingly, the failure on Matchday 1 against the Wanderers was possibly a good omen for the mission resurgence. Meanwhile, West Brom has long been on the rise and with a victory on Monday evening could approach the direct promotion space currently up to three points for Norwich City. Thus, at Bolton against West Brom, according to odds, the bookmaker is the guest favorite on a win. Against the Canaries it was enough last week in direct duel despite leadership only to a 1: 1. With that, West Brom scored in each of the past 23 league home games in a row – the best series since November 1993 (25 games).
In general, the offensive qualities of this season are the big trump of baggies. With 55 goals, the squad of coach and Albion legend Darren Moore represents the championship’s best offensive. At the same time it was enough under former defender Moore but only three games without conceding, which is the worst value of the league (along with bottom of the table Ipswich). Striker Dwight Gayle, who scored 14 goals with his last 17 shots, is currently in trouble. The baggies have lost just one defeat in the past eleven championship games (six wins, four draws) but failed to win any of the recent three championship matches (two draws, one bust). Still, we have little doubt that the baggies will win the match on Monday night, so at Bolton against West Brom our prediction is a tip for an away win. After a week of training camps in Dubai, the baggies are freshly refreshed. Matt Phillips is fit again, but ex-international Jake Livermore sits down the last of his four-game suspension. Leihspieler Harvey Barnes (nine goals, seven assists) was ordered back to Leicester prematurely.
Best scorers in the championship:
- 14 goals: Dwight Gayle
13 goals: Jay Rodriguez
9 goals: Harvey Barnes
Expected formation of West Brom:
Johnstone; Gibbs, Dawson, Hegazy, Holgate; Barry, Harper, Brunt; Gayle, Rodriguez, Robson canoe
Coach: Darren Moore
