Top Derby County vs Bolton prediction, tips, and League One odds

Pride Park has hosted plenty of historical clashes in the past. What’s one more? The Derby County vs Bolton game on Saturday is going to be one for the history books as both managers strive to get a much-needed win.

Bolton – Under 0.5 goals

The Trotters couldn’t score against Derby County in the last two games. The last one was even a goalless draw in which Bolton barely had two shots on target. It will take quite the performance from coach Ian Evatt’s boys to even get near Joe Wildsmith’s penalty area let alone score.

Derby County have the 2nd-most solid defense and with only 19 goals conceded in 25 games, they sure are favorites to keep a clean sheet versus Bolton.

Derby County to win

Paul Warne is definitely a manager who knows a thing or two about handling the Trotters. With three victories, two draws, and only one loss in six matches, he has the confidence to go up against Bolton as a favorite to win this match.

Furthermore, Bolton don’t have either the home-field advantage or the head-to-head one. After all, the Rams are brutal in the direct games versus Bolton as they won six of the last 10 events, three ended in draws, and Bolton emerged victoriously only once – on the 29th of September, 2018.

David McGoldrick to score

This isn’t going to be your run-of-the-mill League One game as we have an in-form David McGoldrick leading the charge for Derby County on Saturday. He’s a true English football legend and at the age of 35, he’s still as lethal in the penalty area as he always was. With eight goals and two assists this season, he’ll definitely want to further boost his tally and show that age is just a number.

Derby County vs Bolton: match preview and team news

Our brief match preview will help you make the best possible Derby County vs Bolton bet.

Derby County

The Rams have one huge card to play in the game against Bolton on Saturday. And it’s called Pride Park Stadium. After all, Derby County enjoys the highest average attendance in the league at 26,919 fans per game. This is certainly a frightening number and it’s no wonder we have the Rams in 4th place with not a single loss in the last five games.

Bolton

The Trotters’ performance has been second to none. With three losses and two draws in the last five league games, coach Ian Evatt’s boys look like they’ll give Derby County a run for their money on Saturday. They can’t let their foot off the gas as a loss against the Rams will drastically reduce the chances for promotion.
