Derby came from behind to claim a spirited 3-2 victory over Cheltenham Town last weekend, thanks to goals from Conor Hourihane, Max Bird and Tom Barkhuizen.
The Rams have now won each of their last three League One games, with five victories coming in their previous six outings across all competitions, cementing their status as one of the division’s in-form sides.
When you look at the bigger picture, Derby are currently enjoying 12-game unbeaten streak in the league, having picked up six wins and six draws since losing to promotion-chasing Ipswich Town back in October.
Paul Warne’s men have shone at both ends of the pitch recently, scoring at least three goals in five of their last six League One victories, in addition to keeping seven clean sheets across their previous 12 league outings.
Boasting the second-best defensive record in the division, the East Midlands outfit will be confident of returning to the Championship at the first time of asking after suffering relegation last season.
It is worth noting that Bolton are enjoying an unbeaten run of their own at the moment, having claimed five wins and three draws in their past eight games across all competitions.
After booking their place in the semi-finals of the EFL Trophy with a 1-0 win against Portsmouth, the Whites beat the same opponents 3-0 in the league last time out, courtesy of goals from Dion Charles, Kieran Lee and Eoin Toal.

Thanks to a run of five clean sheets in six outings, Ian Evatt’s side hold the third-best defensive record in the division, having conceded one goal more than Derby this term.
After gaining promotion from League Two in 2021, Bolton finished ninth in their first season back in the third tier, meaning they will fancy their chances of returning to the Championship for the first time since the 2018-19 campaign.
