Recent respective form guides
Bolton Wanderers's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Trotters have scored 5, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.
West Ham Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, unbeaten in the last six, but with four of them resulting in draws. The games have constituted a decent return of 9 goals for the Hammers, and 4 goals against.
Bolton Wdrs. find themselves struggling down in 14th position in the league having picked up 27 points from their 25 matches. West Ham Utd.'s 33 points from 25 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 8th position.
