Leeds United vs Bolton Wanderers: Preview, team news, predicted lineups, odds

Leeds United will hope to return to the top of the table on Saturday when they take on Bolton Wanderers in their next Championship game.

Bolton, on the other hand, have struggled for consistency this season, and even a point will be seen as a positive result. The Trotters have won just once against Leeds in the last 10 meetings between the two sides.

Leeds are currently two points behind Norwich City, but do have a game in hand over the Canaries and Sheffield United, who they trail on goal difference.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side ended a two-game winless run in the Championship with a narrow 2-1 win against Swansea City, and will be confident of picking up the three points when they host Bolton.
