Bolton are given a price of 3.75 for the win but the result appears improbable with their current run of form. Bolton made a quick start off the blocks with three wins from their opening four matches but their run has since been poor with just one victory in the 12 games thereafter. Moreover, they have struggled in their home patch unlike the previous campaign and Swansea have fared much better on both sides of the field. Our preview fancies Swansea to end their woes on the road.

More of the same can be anticipated this weekend with Swansea picking up clean sheets in nearly 50% of their games this term. Our total goals prediction fancies less than 2.5 goals.
