Derby County vs Bolton Wanderers Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

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

Derby put to an end an eight-game winless run on Easter Monday and kept alive their play-off hopes with a 1-0 victory at Preston.  Tom Lawrence got the only goal of the game mind you County were very fortunate as North-End were the dominant team.

Bolton suffered their second successive defeat on Tuesday night going down 1-0 at home to Birmingham.  Wanderers saw more of the ball but could not find a way past their well-drilled opponents.

The reverse fixture came in mid-August in Lancashire and it was the Rams who won 2-1 on that occasion with a David Nugent brace.  Gary Madine got the consolation for the Trotters who are without a win in their last eight against Derby.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Derby are strong favourites to win the game though I would not to be siding with a team at these prices who have won just one of their last six at their own ground.  Bolton though have won just once on the road all season so I could not be backing them either.

Given that the Rams have failed to score their first goal in each of their last three I think the Trotters look worth a little interest to be the first team to net especially at the prices on offer.    This also leads to a similar style bet where you can back Wanderers to net a goal in the first-half.

Derby County Preview

The Rams picked up three points at the right time as they looked in danger of slipping out of the play-off picture.  They are in fifth place two points above the chasing pack and with a game in hand.

At the iPro Stadium, they have lost their last two and won just one of their previous six in front of their own fans.  Each of their last four at their own ground have seen both teams find the back of the net.

In 18 of their 39 league matches Derby have been ahead going into the break and if the league was based on just the first 45 minutes they would be in second place.  23 of the 39 the East Midlands outfit have played this season have seen exactly two or three goals.

 

Derby County Team News

Bradley Johnson (foot), Marcus Olsson (back), Kyle McAllister, (groin) and Jonathan Mitchell (finger) are doubts while Sam Winnall (cruciate) is out for the season.  

 

Bolton Wanderers Preview

Five points from their last five games and the struggles of the sides beneath them has allowed Wanderers to keep themselves out of the bottom three.  They are currently fifth from bottom five points above Barnsley who do have a game in hand.

Away from the Macron Stadium, they are without a victory in their last seven though three of their last four have ended all-square.  Adam Le Fondre has netted in two of the last three on his travels.

Just one of the last five Bolton have played in the Championship and two of their last 19 have gone over 2.5 goals.  53% of their goals have come in the second 15-minute period of each half.

 

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Stephen Darby (head) and Darren Pratley (unknown) are doubts.
