Saying the game is a must win is a bit over dramatic, but with the sides just above the relegation zone having difficult games, three points will be more than useful.

Vital Quotes:

‘I am not happy with the position in the league. If I said otherwise, a lot of people would be jumping up and down.’

A lot of people are jumping up and down anyway, especially those on the Bolton News website. Shurrup Sammy, eh?

Derby Team News:

Darren Moore may return from injury and Giles Barnes is expected to play some part, as is Ex-Bolton thug Andy Todd.

Player to watch: Kenny Miller

The match may turn into a hoof-a-thon. Miller got on the end of a long punt to despatch Newcastle United and could do the same again if Bolton’s defence goes into the now familiar switch off mode.

Bolton Team News:

Jlloyd Samuel is still injured (yee-hoo!) but Ivan Campo is expected to recover from his broken groin.

Player to watch: Kevin Davies

The most under-rated player in the Premiership. Diouf and Anelka may be spectacular, but it’s the solid skills and endeavour of Davies that Bolton need at the moment.

Match Facts & Stats

Bolton have a poor record against Derby. The last time the two teams played, Derby won 3-1 at the Reebok in a game that seemed to signal the end of Bolton in the Premiership. As it was, Derby were relegated.

Ref Watch:

Rob Styles. Utter tosser, and that’s being charitable.

Next Fixtures:

Chelsea (H)

Arsenal (A)

Piece of piss.
