One to Watch: Mason Mount

The 19-year-old has four goals to his name this season and was on the scoresheet last week as he played a pivotal role in Derby County’s home win.

Sammy Ameobi missed out last weekend with a knock and will hope to shake it off in time. Ameobi aside, Bolton Wanderers have a fully-fit squad to choose from. Bolton’s change of formation helped them earn a point against Ipswich Town, so their starting XI and system are likely to stay the same.

Ikechi Anya is a long-term casualty, while George Evans and Curtis Davies are also struggling with injuries, although they could return this weekend. The core of Frank Lampard’s team has remained the same recently, but he could choose to tinker with his attack.

Bolton Wanderers vs Derby County Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Derby turn their high of beating Manchester United into another win?

After a promising start to the season, Bolton Wanderers are now five without a win in the English second tier, and the Championship predictions point to another difficult afternoon for Phil Parkinson’s team. Bolton will have been boosted by their draw last week at Ipswich Town, having played the best part of an hour with 10 men. The Trotters showed great character to grind out a point, and they have the chance to build on that in this home fixture against Derby County. However, they start as underdogs at 3/1 with BetBright.

Derby have bounced back well after their defeat to Rotherham, with last week’s 3-1 home win against Brentford pushing them up to sixth in the table, followed by a morale-boosting elimination of Manchester United in the Carabao Cup. Frank Lampard’s team have lost two and won two of their four away games so far in the Championship but will travel to Bolton confident of getting the points. The visitors are unbeaten against their hosts in their last six meetings and the football predictions back them to extend that run. Derby start as 19/20 favourites.

Bolton have picked up the majority of their points so far on the road, so a draw is looking like their best hope in this one. With Derby a little indifferent on their travels, the stalemate is not an outrageous football prediction. It is 9/4 for this one to end all square.

Top of the first goalscorer market are Derby pair Martyn Waghorn at 37/10 and Jack Marriot at 41/10, while Josh Magennis is Bolton’s best offering at 7/1.

Predicted Score: Bolton Wanderers 1 - 2 Derby County
