Derby vs Bolton Prediction & Match Preview

Derby vs Bolton
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 13th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Pride Park (Derby).

Derby met with an unexpected setback this week as they lost against the low-lying Blackburn, while their closest competitor Middlesbrough recorded a win.

Middlesbrough had been going through a very bad patch, and a win was really not anticipated of them. Anyhow, things are not out of hand yet. Derby does have a game in hand, and they are taking on the relegation-threatened Bolton this weekend.

Bolton has half-accepted life in the League One as reality. They are behind the cut-off by nine points and have just 15 more points to play for. They have conceded the second-most number of goals while scoring the least. In fact, the team remains the only one yet to touch the 30-goal mark.

Derby vs Bolton Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Five of the last six wins belong to Derby.

  • Bolton last won at this venue back in 1999.
  • Derby won the last three straight encounters at this stadium and scored three or more goals in each.

Derby vs Bolton Prediction

To ensure playoffs, Derby needs to be nothing but outstanding in their remaining six matches. Their trump card will be the extra match in hand, and the team will try to make the most out of it. This week, they are at home, against a side that is almost eliminated from the competition.

Bolton has no will left to fight for and possesses one of the worst defenses in the tournament. Offensively, they really are the worst of the lot. On top of that, being on the road under this high-pressure situation will definitely be counterproductive for them.

Derby registered five of the last six h2h wins and won the last three meetings at this venue, and that too by scoring three or more goals. Bolton, who lost ten of their last twelve away ties, and was winless in 17 of their last 19, is surely expected to lose by a big margin in this game.
