History of the Bolton Wanderers v Derby County fixture

Derby County travel to take on Bolton Wanderers at Reebok Stadium on Wednesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rams will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The last time the two teams met at Bolton Wdrs. was back in March 2002, over five years ago, as the visitors ran out cosy 1 - 3 winners in a Premiership match.
