Derby County boss Steve McClaren insists that Dougie Freedman is the right man in charge of Bolton Wanderers despite their poor start to the season.

Derby County boss Steve McClaren has backed under-fire Dougie Freedman to turn Bolton Wanderers's season around.

The Trotters fell to their sixth defeat of the campaign as they lost 2-0 to McClaren's side, with Chris Martin notching a brace at the Macron Stadium.

McClaren told Sky Sports News: "This is management and it can be cruel at times.

"You live and die by results. But Bolton were unlucky at Wolves last week, were terrific at Chelsea in midweek and today we played very well.

"When the pressure is on you need a performance from your players. We have all been in that situation and we all feel for each other. I will have a beer with Dougie and hope performances and results improve because he has good players."

Derby are sixth in the Championship following their win.
