Derby County vs Bolton Wanderers
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 7 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: iPro Stadium (Derby).
Derby County broke back into the top six in the Championship ladder thanks to a victory over direct promotional rivals Preston North End at Deepdale Stadium. It was Thomas Lawrence who bagged the match-winner early in the second half. The Rams will thus come into Saturday’s affair with Bolton Wanderers high on confidence and we see them as the massive favourites to back up such an impressive win with another three-pointer.
The Trotters will be lucky to save the second class status at the end of the season. They are on a good way to do so, being five points clear off the danger area. Nonetheless, they’ve suffered a disappointing 0-1 defeat fellow strugglers Birmingham City at home on Tuesday evening. It was their second defeat on the bounce. The team has generally been struggling for goals throughout the entire season and they have not netted two or more goals in last 17 games in all competitions.
Gary Rowett’s side should thus get a nice chance to make it back-to-back clean sheets after having their net untouched against a strong Preston side away at Deepdale. The win has thus finally ended a dreadful period for the Rams who have previous been winless in eight straight games in Championship.
