Queens Park Rangers sit 17th in the table, a massive 15 points ahead of Bolton. Their current form however, is actually worse than Bolton’s recent run of results.
In their last 12 games, QPR have just one win to their name, whereas Bolton have won two of their last 12. Although, QPR’s one win did come against promotion-chasing Leeds.
Knowing the way things have gone for Bolton though, QPR are likely to record their second win of 2019 on Saturday.
QPR’s biggest goalscoring threat this season has been Luke Freeman. The former Bristol City midfielder has seven league goals to his name this season.
The Trotters meanwhile sit an alarming eight points from safety with just eight games to go. Bolton earned their last eight points over their previous 13 games. With such a short space of time until the end of the season, survival seems impossible.
An unlikely win against QPR would be a welcome result though. But you can’t help but feel that any positive results would just be prolonging the inevitable.
However, an unlikely win got a whole lot more unlikely yesterday with the news that Jason Lowe will be out for the rest of the season. The club’s website confirmed the hard-working midfielder suffered ankle ligament damage in the derby defeat at Wigan and will be out of action for the next 8-10 weeks.
Regardless of the result however, the biggest question mark hovering over Bolton Wanderers currently, is the club’s ownership status. Bolton are supposedly on the verge of being bought out, but is that likely to happen before Saturday’s QPR match?
