Boasting the most prolific attack in the Championship, Al Hain-Cole expects Moore's Baggies to prove too strong for Parkinson's misfiring outfit

West Bromwich Albion have the chance to close the gap on the automatic promotion places when they travel to the University of Bolton Stadium in Monday’s Championship clash.

The Baggies are six points adrift of the top two with a game in hand, and would move above third-placed Sheffield United with a victory here.

Latest odds

Having won four of their last five away matches in the league, they are 3/4 (1.75) favourites with bet365 to take all three points here.

However, Phil Parkinson’s team pulled off a shock 2-1 victory at the Hawthorns in August’s reverse encounter, and are available at 15/4 (4.75) to pull level on points with 21st-placed Rotherham by coming out on top once again.

The sides shared a 2-2 draw when they last met at this ground in a Premier League meeting in 2012, and you can get odds of 13/5 (3.60) on this one also finish up all square.

Team news

On-loan Norwich winger Yanic Wildschut is a long-term absentee after undergoing ankle surgery, while Everton loanee Joe Williams is also a doubt due to a thigh injury.

Matt Phillips has returned after returning from an ankle injury, although Jake Livermore is suspended as he serves the third game of his four-match ban.

Struggling Bolton

While Darren Moore’s men are battling for promotion, the Trotters are facing a real battle for survival after winning just once in 17 league matches – losing 12.

Having conceded eight goals in their last two fixtures, they could be in for a long 90 minutes against the Championship’s most prolific forward line.

Predictions

Averaging over two goals a game, those 3/4 (1.75) odds seem like solid value on West Brom outscoring a Bolton team that has scored only six times in their last 12 home matches in the league on their way to a fifth away win in six.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
