Bolton were finally mathematically consigned to third tier football next season as they meekly surrendered yet again, this time at Derby.

With around 500 travelling fans preparing for a relegation party, it didn’t take long for Bolton to do what they do best. Johnny Russell hit an effort from 30 yards to once again beat Ben Amos after just 12 minutes.

Tom Ince then settled the match just before the break with a finish on the volley. After half time, two became three as former Bolton player Jacob Butterfield found the net via a deflection. He didn’t celebrate, but scoring a goal at home to Bolton is hardly an achievement.

Mark Davies, coming off the bench, was brought down in the box, allowing Zach Clough to convert a penalty and spark ironic celebrations in the away end, but Russell scored his second from close range to seal a big Derby win.
