Foot in Both Camps: Bolton Wanderers v Derby County

28 September 2018

Over the years, various players have turned out for both Bolton Wanderers and Derby County. With the impending fixture coming up against the Rams, takes a look at players who played for both sides…

Nicky Hunt

Coming through the youth academy at Bolton, Hunt made his first team debut in 2000/01 as a substitute for Colin Hendry against Sheffield United on the final day of the regular season.

With 143 starts for the club in his nine years at the University of Bolton Stadium, he enjoyed playing in the UEFA Cup for the Whites, in addition to starting in the League Cup Final against Middlesbrough in 2004.

During his time under contract with the Whites, Hunt joined Derby on loan in January 2010, to compete for the right back spot with Paul Connolly.

Coming in on an initial short term loan, Hunt’s stay at Pride Park was extended until the end of that campaign.

Francis Lee


Starting his career with Wanderers in 1960s, Lee spent eight seasons with the club and went onto score 106 goals in 210 games.

He top scored for the Whites in four of those campaigns, with 22 goals coming in 1966/67.

After an accolade-filled tenure with Manchester City, Lee went onto join the Rams in 1974.

He won the First Division title in 1974/75, as well as the Charity shield during his spell in Derbyshire.

John McGovern

After leaving Hartlepool United, the midfielder joined Derby County to link up with former Pools management pair Brian Clough and Peter Taylor.

He was a major figure in the side that won the First Division in 1971/72, with McGovern playing in virtually every game that year.

The former Scotland international went onto have a trophy filled tenure with Nottingham Forest after leaving Derby.

Towards the end of his career, McGovern joined the Whites as player-manager in July 1982. He remained at the club for a further three years.

Andy Todd


Joining from Middlesbrough in August 1995, the centre back made 107 appearances and scored three goals.

He didn’t leave the club without picking up some silverware, as the defender was in the squad that won the 1996/97 First Division.

In July 2007, Todd joined Derby County from Blackburn Rovers for a reported fee of £750,000.

In a two year spell, Todd made just over 30 bows for the Rams.

Jeff Chandler

The Republic of Ireland international made 211 appearances for the Trotters during the 1980s, scoring 48 goals in the process.

Chandler was a pivotal figure when under the guidance of John McGovern, who described the player as “the best player at the club” at that time.

After suffering a serious knee injury in the early part of the 1987/88 season, Chandler left the club to join Cardiff City for a season before retiring from playing.

In between his two stints with Wanderers, Chandler joined Derby County in 1985, making over 40 appearances for the Rams during his two year tenure at the club.

Match Reports

Report: Bolton Wanderers 1-0 Derby County

29 September 2018

Bolton Wanderers took all three points against Derby County at the University of Bolton Stadium this afternoon, with a Craig Noone goal being the difference as the Whites ran out 1-0 victors in the Sky Bet Championship.

Team News

Since his side's last outing against Ipswich Town, manager Phil Parkinson made two changes for the visit of Derby County.

Remi Matthews came in for Ben Alnwick, with David Wheater replacing a suspended Marc Wilson in the starting 11.

First Half

Wanderers had the first chance of the half seven minutes into the clash.

Craig Forsyth’s pass was intercepted by Will Buckley, who only had the keeper to beat but Fikayo Tomori managed to get back in a last gasp challenge to avert the danger.

Ten minutes in however and the Whites took the lead as a long kick forward from Remi Matthews found Buckley, who beat his man and lofted the ball to the back post for Craig Noone to head the ball past Scott Carson.

On the half hour mark and a Harry Wilson cross eventually comes to Mason Bennett, but a super block from Whites’ defender Jack Hobbs blocks any threat the effort had of going in.

Erhun Oztumer began to pull the strings shortly after that, with a run through the centre of the pitch.

With Buckley to his left, he slotted through the winger, who brought it inside and went down under a challenge from Jayden Bogle. The referee waved away any protests for a penalty.

David Nugent had a chance just before the break for the Rams, but his shot from a long distance away was never troubling the Wanderers goal.

A mix up at the back for Frank Lampard’s side deep into stoppage time for the first half allowed Oztumer some space on the edge of the area.

His curled effort narrowly crept past the post of Scott Carson, who was left stranded.

Second Half

On the hour mark in the second period and substitute Jack Marriott had the first real chance.

Picking up the ball in the middle of Wanderers' half, he unleashed a driven shot low to the right of Matthews, but the ball flew wide of the target as the Trotters keeper saw it out of play.

Minutes after and the Whites were back up the other end with an attacking threat of their own.

A Jonathan Grounds freekick goes over the head of striker Josh Magennis, eventually finding Craig Noone.

The wide-man hits it first time, leaving Carson a mere bystander as it goes perilously close to a second for Phil Parkinson’s men.

Will Buckley was proving a complete menace out on the left flank for Wanderers, as he got the better of Richard Keogh and Jayden Bogle and produced an effort down low, with Scott Carson saving well to his left.

From the resulting save, a counter attack was produced as Derby took advantage of an open left side of the field.

It fell to Mason Mount, who jinked to his left and shot from close range, which was blocked superbly well by Joe Williams tracking back.

Fifteen minutes before the end and Joe Williams caught the away side in possession and began running at pace towards the Rams 18-yard box.

With substitute Christian Doidge available to pass to, the midfield loanee opted to shoot and his curled effort aiming for the top right was narrowly off target.

Ten minutes left and County substitute Martyn Waghorn was played through with 8 yards between him and the goal.

As he pulled his leg back to shoot, another Jack Hobbs monster block came in and was followed up by full back Pawel Olkowski, who sent the ball into touch.

Tom Lawrence picked up the ball out on the right wing, producing a ball into the Wanderers penalty area as Frank Lampard’s men continued to search for the equaliser.

The ball was headed away by Hobbs to Craig Bryson, who took range on the half volley but it went into the stands.

Two minutes left of regular time and Derby came as close as they have all half.

Forsyth produced an unbelievable diagonal ball over to an unmarked Mason Mount, who headed goalward from point blank range.

Matthews was more than alert to it, saving well to his right and palming away the certain goal had it not been for his heroics.

Into added time it went and the visitors threw everything but the kitchen sink at Wanderers' goal, but Parkinson’s men stood tall and resolute as they prevented an equaliser and took home the victory.

Full Time

Wanderers XI: Matthews, Lowe, Oztumer (Vela 85'), Buckley, Noone (O’Neil 74'), Hobbs, Olkowski, J. Williams, Magennis (Doidge 74'), Grounds, Wheater (C)

Substitutes: B. Williams, Beevers, Donaldson, Wildschut.
