There’s no denying that Norwich currently laud it over their next Championship visitors in the table, but with a hungry new coach at their helm and improving form behind them, Bolton can expose the Canaries’ growing Carrow Road malaise.
What could be better than a Friday night in with two of the Championship’s biggest names battling it out live on the Goggle Box?
Making some money off the proceedings of course:
Bolton to beat Norwich @ 19/4
Whatever Norwich were doing so well in August and September, they’ve ceased doing in October, during a run of five winless games.
Namely the goals have dried up, as the Canaries have only managed two during this lean spell, losing 1-0 on separate occasions and also drawing 0-0 at Sheffield Wednesday last time out.
It’s their home form which will be most troubling to Neil Adams as the men in green-and-yellow last recorded three points at Carrow Road on August 19th.
All this means new Trotters boss Neil Lennon should be smelling blood, especially after overseeing his second win in his opening three games in charge when beating Brentford 3-1 at the Reebok.
Draw/Bolton @ 10/1
Norwich have been level or losing in each of their last 11 games in all competitions, drawing nine of those at the break, rendering this bet a potential corker.
More goals in the second half @ 1/1
As mentioned above, Norwich have a real problem with scoring goals in the opening 45 minutes.
This punt would have hit the jackpot in four of the Canaries’ last half-dozen outings, while the last time their fans were able to celebrate a first-half strike was on the last day of August.
Meanwhile, five of the last six Bolton goals arrived after the midpoint, including three after the hour against the Bees.
