Against All Odds: Trotters to stamp on Norwich's promotion dreams

Can Neil Lennon lead Bolton to promotion next season?
Can Neil Lennon lead Bolton to promotion next season?

Backing at odds-on in the Championship is often the quickest way to the poorhouse so with Norwich south of evens for their trip to Bolton, Paul Robinson thinks that they must be opposed.

"Things sound even better if we concentrate on their results at the Macron Stadium as they’ve lost just one of 14 in front of their own fans – winning eight times."

Lay Norwich v Bolton @ 1.845/6

Bolton v Norwich
Saturday April 11, 15:00 BST

It's been another disappointing campaign for Bolton as they should really be challenging for the play-offs at a minimum. Neil Lennon has given fans hope for next season as since his appointment earlier on in the year their form has improved, but they still need to take a few steps forward.

The Trotters are in fairly decent heart at the moment though as it's just one defeat in five and they won 3-0 at Cardiff last time out. Things sound even better if we concentrate on their results at the Macron Stadium as they've lost just one of 14 in front of their own fans - winning eight times.

Norwich are another club who have improved since the appointment of a new manager and victory this afternoon would see them move to within one point of Bournemouth at the top. Finishing in the first two is all that matters though as the play-offs can be a lottery and there are some excellent sides in the top six.

Alex Neil's men have won their last three outings but two of those were at Carrow Road. Prior to that it was one win in four as they were held by Derby and Huddersfield and beaten by Wigan.

There is no denying that the visitors are the better team but this won't be an easy task and the pressure is all on them. That's why, with their price trading at around the 1.845/6 mark, I have to make them my lay of the day.
