Wanderers’ hopes of making a late play-off push were dented against Burton last night, but how do the bookies rate their chances?
Ian Evatt’s men suffered a 3-1 loss against the Brewers following a disastrous opening 18 minutes at the Pirelli Stadium.
Dion Charles’ late goal proved to be nothing more than a consolation as the Whites’ seven-game unbeaten run came to an end.
The result leaves Wanderers 10th in the League One table - eight points behind sixth-placed Plymouth, who have played two games fewer.
According to Sky Bet’s latest odds, Bolton are expected to finish mid-table and are priced at 8/1 to make the top six.
The bookies predict that Sheffield Wednesday, Ipswich and Portsmouth are all more likely to break into the play-off places than the Whites.
However, Wanderers are expected to finish above the likes of Charlton, Accrington and Burton come the end of April.
Of course, Evatt’s men went on a remarkable run in the second half of last season to finish third in League Two and clinch automatic promotion.
