Is This The Perfect Time to Play Derby For Bolton?

Bolton fans will be hoping Derby’s midweek cup tie will play into the hands of Phil Parkinson’s team, having not won in the Championship since the end of August.

Bolton have faced a tough few weeks, following a close shave with administration.

Wanderers fans will be hoping not to face a similar season to last year, and after a great start to the 2018/19 campaign, things looked on the up.

After a winless streak of five games throughout September, the rot needs to stop – and this weekends game against Frank Lampard’s Derby could be the perfect match to do so.

However, the Rams will certainly be buoyed up following thier midweek penalty win over Man United in the Carabao Cup. Certainly, playing back to back games with a similar team within four days and then the long penalty shootout, could have a tired effect on the players and the Trotters have to capitalise early on.

Bolton Boss Phil Parkinson will be looking for a big game performance from his team following some less than impressive displays at the Universty of Bolton Stadium in recent times.

Bolton fans do you think you can turnover Derby this weekend?
