            Derby County host Bolton Wanderers at Pride Park this Saturday in League One. Both teams are in the thick of the battle for automatic promotion whilst also being within touching distance of top of the table Portsmouth.

            Derby took the lead against Barnsley through a goal from Sonny Bradley in the 18th minute, but Adam Phillips equalised before the halftime whistle. Phillips grabbed a second in the second half to give Barnsley the 2 - 1 win and all three points. It was another 2 - 1 loss for Derby the next time out, this time against Charlton. The Rams once again took the lead in the first half, with Eiran Cashin on the scoresheet. However, a penalty from Alfie May and a late goal from Karoy Anderson gave Charlton the 2 - 1 win.

            The Rams bounced back against Port Vale. An own goal from Kacper Lopata in the fifth minute gave Derby the lead and Dwight Gayle doubled the lead before halftime.

Gayle, Tom Barkhuizen and Martyn Waghorn all scored in the second half to secure the 3 - 0 win.

            The last time out for Derby was against Reading. The opening stages of the second half saw Galye open the scoring for Derby and Sam Smith equalising just three minutes later, but Andy Yiadom would be sent off for Reading before the hour mark. Conor Hourihane then converted his penalty to give Derby the 2 - 1 win.
