Bolton Wanderers vs Derby County Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features features two sides in opposite halves of the table.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Bolton picked up just their second point from their last five as they battled out a goalless draw at Ipswich.  It was well-earned as they played most of the game with ten-men following the 34th minute dismissal of Marc Wilson.

Derby continued their recent good run and made it four victories from the last six with an impressive 3-1 defeat of high-flying Brentford thanks to a goal each from Harry Wilson, David Nugent and Mason Mount.  In midweek, they were in League Cup action away at Old Trafford and knocked out the Premier League side on penalties.

The two meetings between these sides were won by the Rams who won 3-0 at their own ground and 2-1 at the Macron.  The Rams have won five of the last six head-to-heads and lost none of nine.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Derby are the most likely winners but given they have already lost at Rotherham and Millwall this season I could not be backing them with any confidence.  I would not though be looking to take them on with a Bolton side badly out of form.

Take the Rams to score over 1.5 goals as three of the four visitors to the Macron have done so this season.  Also, the Rams look capable of scoring their first goal before the suggested time which is 48:00

Bolton Wanderers Preview

The Trotters are now without a win in five and will be grateful for the strong start come the end of the season and the inevitable relegation battle.  They now have four of their next six at their own ground.

At the Macron, they have lost their two previous to Sheff U and QPR though started the season with a defeat of Birmingham and a draw with Bristol City.  The Lancashire outfit are one of six teams to have conceded the most goals at their own ground with a total of seven.

Bolton have scored nine goals this season though just one in the last three with Josh Magennis leading the way with four.  Their defence has conceded 12 times though nine of these have come in the last five.

 

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Sammy Ameobi (ankle) and Jake Turner (broken wrist) will miss the next month.  Marc Wilson will begin a two game suspension.

Derby County Preview

The Rams started the season slow but have taken 13 points from a possible 18 from their last six fixtures.  They are sixth in the table and face three straight against teams not currently in the top ten.

Away from Pride Park, it has been a mixed bag with victories over Hull and Reading and defeats to Rotherham and Millwall.  Three of the four the East Midlands outfit have played on the road have ended 2-1 with them winning two of them.

Derby have the joint-ninth best attacking record in the league with 13 goals scored with Tom Lawrence and Mason Mount having three each.  They have the joint-sixth best defensive record with just ten conceded.

 

Derby County Team News

Curtis Davies (hamstring) and George Evans (knee) are doubts while Marcus Olsson (cruciate) is a long-term absentee.
