Paul Higham has a 9/25.50 Bet Builder treble in play for the League One play-off semi-final as Bolton hold a healthy lead going into Tuesday's second leg against Barnsley.

That stoppage time third Bolton goal in the first leg on Friday made all the difference as they host Barnsley as 1/80 dead certs to make it to Wembley according to the bookies.

It's not just the 3-1 lead they hold, but the fact the Trotters are unbeaten in their last 10 at home and Barnsley have now gone seven games without a win after a rotten end to the season.

So it looks like Bolton will get revenge for going out to Barnsley at this point last season, but the Tykes will go out swinging and despite not winning have still been scoring.

So it could be eventful...

Leg 1: Both teams to score

All three games this season and the last three meeting at Bolton have seen both teams score, and we'll back that happening again at 4/61.67.

And although Barnsley haven't won in seven, all seven have seen goals at both ends - and plenty of them in fact.

Yes, Bolton could effectively kill the tie by scoring first but strange things happen in the play-offs so Barnsley won't throw in the towel too soon.

Leg 2: Adam Phillips 1+ shot on target

A good price from the shots markets in the 1/12.00 on Barnsley's Adam Phillips to hit the target at least once.

The bet's landed in five of the last seven games Phillips has played in, along with in two of the three games against Bolton this season.

Barnsley have to go for it so expect them to have a go any time they get chance early on.

Leg 3: Paris Maghoma1+ shot on target

And for Bolton, just outside the big favourites we have Paris Maghoma, who is 4/51.80 for 1+ shot on target and is in a super productive run.

The 22-year-old has had a goal or assist in his last three games, along with six shots on target.

And 13 goal attempts in those last three games shows plenty of volume that should mean he can deliver for us again.

Back both teams to score, Phillips & Maghoma 1+ shot on target @ 9/25.50
