Could do with Liverpool wearing them out a bit tonight, as they've perked up a bit since Lennon came in.

I predict a tight game, but a 2-1 win will do quite nicely please!

Can see it being a lot tighter than the away game was. Whilst we played very well that day I do think Freedman set you up awfully that day against us. Something I think he even admitted after the game he got massively wrong. There's no doubt Lennon has made you tougher to beat and from what I've seen of you in the two FA cup games there's plenty of threat too.

First of 5 games I'm missing this month, probably start with a win as per. With Bournemouth away on Tuesday night I think it's imperative we get some points on the board from this one.

Freedmans tactics played in to your hands, but you are a good side, so can only see a 2-0 home win myself

Don't know to be honest, last week and half been expensive with 1 home and 3 aways, lucky if 800 to 1000 come

One change to the team that beat Cardiff last week.

Tom Ince comes in for Simon Dawkins who drops to the bench. Lingard also on the subs bench. Still no Albentosa, hamstrings still tight.

Come on Derby!

Finished 4-1, braces for both Ince and Hendrick. Ince hitting the post late on to deny him his hattrick on debut.

Obviously I didn't see the game but sounds like Hughes was class again. Please confirm game go'ers!

Great result.
Roll on Tuesday, massive night.

I think at half time 2-0 was not derserved to be fair, it was an even game and Bolton did have some chances, but a great Ince free kick and and good build up move for Hendrick changed it.

Second half start was perfect, before we just decided to slow down and sit back a bit, letting Bolton have a very slight hope. Turned a bit scrappy, before the final 25 mins we started to go forward again and could have scored a few. Good game, and while Bolton's forwards looked good their defence wasn't so good.

Ince had a poor first half up to the free kick, and was more involved after. Hughes wasn't as good as in previous games I don't think, but was still a class player. Bolton's wingers caused us some problems, need to be careful with that especially with Bournemouth next.

Overall a good win though :)

Couldn't disagree with you more to be honest. Ince was class from the first minute to the last.
Bolton had two banks of 4 and 5 and sat there and didn't offer anything. As soon as we went two up, they had to change their style of play and this allowed us to control the game even more. Sloppy goal to concede, but we could and probably should have gone for their throats and got more.

All-in-all, a very good performance.

I'm not saying Ince was bad, but for the first half mainly he wasn't really in the game so much, but that's not to say he did badly but he didn't get much chance.

I thought Bolton had some decent attacking movement, a lot down the flanks anyway. But different people see different opinions, so fair enough.

Ince's free kick was near on perfection. All round good performance today, and takes us to 8 wins in 9.

Bring on Bournemouth!
