Birmingham City v Bolton Wanderers Preview, Championship, Saturday October 5th 2013

Although Birmingham City have managed to win a few games and drawn one in the Championship to date it is their win against Premiership side Swansea City in the Capital One Cup at St Andrews Stadium. The game was pretty much end to end with no goals until the hour mark when Birmingham City due Burn and Green hit a goal a piece withing 4 minutes of each other and then a third by Adeyemi before Swansea grabbed a consolation goal in the 90th minute by Wilfried Bony.

Bolton Wanderers are having a terrible time in the Championships as they sit 2nd from bottom with just 5 points from 10 games and it is only recently 3 of those points have been earned with draws to Derby County, Yeovil Town and Blackpool. Now although Birmingham City are only sitting six places above them they have still managed to win a few games themselves and will no doubt be favourites to win this game against a Bolton Wanderers side who are in very poor form.

Birmingham City v Bolton Wanderers Team News

Birmingham City Team News:

Since the signing of Manchester Uniteds young star Jesse Lingard Birmingham City have starting to earn themselves some decent results as the England U21 has bagged 5 goals in just 3 games with 4 of them coming against Sheffield Wednesday. With the City strikers suffering themselves to hit the net it has come as great relief in knowing goals are being scored by other positions within the squad.

Bolton Wanderers Team News:

With only 7 goals being scored in the league so far we can see Bolton Wanderers are struggling when it comes to strikers finding form, as none of these goals have come from anyone playing up the top of the park. Instead relying on Alex Baptiste who has so far notched himself 3 goals in 10 games while playing as part of the back four.

Birmingham City v Bolton Wanderers Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Regardless of what the bookmakers think I do actually think Birmingham City will walk away from this game as convincing winners. So I am going for a Birmingham City 3 – 1 win as they are also at home against a side who have not managed to win a game themselves so far this season.

My other bet is for Jesse Lingard to score a brace and after watching him during preseason for Manchester United the lad is more than capable to be a huge star in the Championship and even be the leagues top scorer by the time his loan spell comes to an end which will surely give David Moyes a headache as the new boss already found it hard to not play him in the first team this year after such a huge impact to the team during their tour.
