Bolton Wanderers had gone five games in the league without a win. Bolton Wanderers had not won a game against Derby County since 2012.

Bolton Wanderers ran out winners against a Derby County side boasting the likes of Chelsea youngster Mason Mount with an all hands to the pump performance.

Craig Noone scored after only ten minutes to give Bolton the lead after great vision from Remi Matthews and a quality Will Buckley cross.

Derby dominated possession but struggled to create clear cut opportunities. Bolton kept them at bay and when called upon Matthews pulled off a stunning save.

I remember shortly after dropping out of the Premier League on an almost weekly basis reading about how teams had recorded their first wins against us in 10/15/20 years. It was a sign that we were in a downward spiral and those teams were on the up.

Football moves in cycles, and lets hope this is the first of many times that we will be ending these pesky runs without a win.
