Can Leeds pull off a double over Bolton Wanderers for the first time since 1997-98?
#LUFC ran out 3-2 winners in the reverse fixture against #BWFC at the start of the season. Can they get another victory tomorrow night? #EFL #MOT @cougarSigns pic.twitter.com/H0yDMXsWM2— StatZone (@StatZoneSports) March 29, 2018
Leeds and Bolton are two teams headed in opposite directions, with Leeds having won only once in their last five matches while Bolton has only lost once in their last five matches. Leeds are at the point where it doesn’t look like relegation or the playoffs will occur, so the team is seeming to tread water while Bolton are on a mission to stay in the Championship. Leeds will be at home, but given the awfulness of how Leeds have been playing, is that really an advantage at this point?
So can Leeds pull a double over Bolton? Maybe, but is it likely? Not really. We’ll see later today
