Bolton Team News:

Nicky Hunt is a doubt with a foot injury.

Player to watch: El Hadji Diouf

The last league game for Gobby chops before he departs for the African Cup of Nations. He'll want to leave on a high note.

Derby will play the long ball. Miller is a danger if he gets on the end of one.

I am going tonight but not expecting much from Bolton. Still made no sense of Megson's choice of team to play Sunderland to be honest. If Bolton lose tonight I think we are heading for the championship and deservedly so. I blame Gartside for poor management and poor choices of manager. Including Megson.

Well you guys certainly needed that goal didnt ya - a real get out of jail free card - Up to 14th considering the rest of the results - I'm not sure that on it's own will be enough to spark a revivial but at least it's a start - Derby are all but down reall then Fulham I reckon so as long as Megson can grind out a few more victories (as boring as they may be) I reckon you'll be ok 14 Bolton 21 -9 20 15 Middlesbrough 21 -17 20 16 Birmingham 21 -10 19 17 Wigan 21 -16 17 18 Sunderland 21 -20 17 19 Fulham 21 -15 15 20 Derby 21 -36 7
