Sports Mole looks ahead to Derby County's home clash against Bolton Wanderers in the Championship.

Bolton Wanderers will travel down to the East Midlands on Tuesday with a poor record from their trips to Derby County.

They have not beaten the Rams on their own patch in a league contest since September 1981 - a sequence that dates back 10 matches.

Their results away from the Reebok Stadium this season also do not make for pleasant reading. From 48 points, Dougie Freedman's side have only managed to collect 12 - only Bristol City have achieved fewer.

Derby on the other hand have a good home record, having lost just twice. However, they have drawn six times, which is a major reason why they have dropped out of promotion contention of late.

Manager Nigel Clough has been tipped to stick with the same side that drew 0-0 with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday for the visit of Bolton.

In contrast, Freedman could make a handful of alterations to his lineup, with Marvin Sordell, David Wheater and Chris Eagles all in contention to earn recalls.
