Wanderers have eight games still to play in League One, but how does their run-in compare to their promotion rivals?

The Whites currently sit in sixth place and have ensured they are right in the mix heading into the business end of the season.

Ian Evatt’s men can take plenty of encouragement from their 1-1 draw at leaders Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night, with Victor Adeboyejo getting on the scoresheet.

However, there are still several sides battling for a place in the top six and the final weeks of the campaign could be rather interesting.

The Bolton News has complied a list of each side’s remaining fixtures and a prediction for how they will fare in the coming weeks.

The predictions are based on football statistics website FiveThirtyEight’s predicted table, which is calculated using a wide range of data from the season so far.
