MATCHDAY LIVE: Derby County 0 Bolton Wanderers 0

This live event has finished

9:39pm

Phew!

9:39pm

9:37pm

Sammon could have won it for Derby - shot straight at Bogdan from close range.

9:34pm

That's 5-5-0 for those counting.

9:33pm

Juke coming off for Wheater

9:21pm

Danns blasts one from the edge of the box - well held by Camp.

9:15pm

Better football from Whites. Chungy's shot deflected wide for a corner - some good build up.

9:11pm

Forstyth blasts one from distance that had Bogdan worried. Just over the bar.

9:09pm

Chungy for Davies

9:07pm

Jutkiewicz fires left footed from the edge of the box. His shot takes a slight deflection but ends up in Camp's arms.

9:04pm

Chungy getting ready.

8:58pm

Trotter gives ball away with first touch - resulting a right scramble in the Whites' box. Cleared away in the end.

8:57pm

Tactical that one. Moritz hadn't got in the game and Wanderers need a bit more muscle at the moment.

8:56pm

Trotter on for Moritz

8:52pm

He opts to chip one up for Keogh but his effort is well off target.

8:52pm

Medo gives away a free kick on the edge of the box. Well within range for Ward.

8:49pm

8:48pm

Derby back out on the pitch now to the tune of Guns n Roses' Welcome to the Jungle. Nearly all the way through the song by the time Wanderers join them.

8:47pm

7:51pm Tue 11 Mar 14

mbeastall says

Just want to confirm my comments aren't there as a deliberate play to provoke controversy its just what I think about Moritz based on what I've seen. As you say Marc each to their own, let's hope he can prove me wrong as that will only help to help the the team succeed.

8:34pm

Half time it is. Not exactly thrilling stuff from Wanderers but they have defended well. Hasn't quite clicked in possession yet.

8:34pm

8:32pm

Wisdom drags a shot just wide from the edge of the box.

8:28pm

Danns spots a gap and charges through the middle - toe-poking a shot just over the bar.

8:23pm

Another effort from Derby, Martin this time, another save from Bogdan.

8:22pm

Though Derby has scored then - Ward's blast missing the post by inches.

8:21pm

Great defending by Medo to halt a run by Hendricks. Looked like he was through on goal if he missed it.

8:18pm

Moritz smashes a shot from 20 yards that forces Lee Grant into action for the first time. Good effort.

8:11pm

Bryson hits a shot off-balance that goes high into the South Stand.

8:10pm

Ward whips in a free kick and Bogdan comes through a load of players to punch it away. Pressure still on.

8:09pm

Mark Davies scampers round the outside and gets behind Derby for the first time - his cross is cleared, unfortunately.

8:07pm

Wisdom looks a player on the Derby right, though. He's been very good in the eraly stages.

8:06pm

Very little going forward from Bolton so far.

8:03pm

Martin side-footed effort saved by Bogdan. Moments later, keeper makes another good save from him after connecting with Ward's cross. Offside flag was up, though.

8:00pm

Zat Knight getting a cheer from the Wanderers fans as he gets up. Back in play now.

7:59pm

Knight goes down after making a clearance - looks in some pain.

7:57pm

Wanderers defend a good few corners. Looking solid so far.

7:56pm

Knight heads clear. Good defending.

7:55pm

Hutton gives away a free kick in a dangerous position for Derby.

7:53pm

Lot of head tennis going on so far. Ball has hardly touched the ground in the last few mins.

7:52pm

Cross from Forsyth on the left forces Bogdan into a save at his near post.

7:49pm

Nothing much to write so far except for the fact it is impossible to see the numbers on the Derby shirts.

7:46pm

7:44pm

Baptiste lining up at left-back. 

7:43pm

7:42pm

Players out on the pitch.

7:37pm

7:32pm Tue 11 Mar 14

J J J J says

Has he felt any after effects in training or are we not sure? Using him weekly so his injury doesn't come back?

 

Think there was an option not to risk him. Hutton had to get a chance at some point and I wonder whether Baptiste's move to left-back is a tactical one too.

7:35pm

Not one of Derby's greatest orators, let's put it that way. His interview lasted 20 seconds and contained the word "fantastic" four times.

7:34pm

Horacio Carbonari being introduced on the pitch. They used to call him The Bazooka, apparently.

7:30pm

Wheater only got a kick on the ankle. He said he was fine on Saturday so it surprises me a bit that he's out.

7:30pm

7:30pm Tue 11 Mar 14

J J J J says

Agree Moritz has the quality but feel he dropped the wrong player, to put him in, Danns has worked extremely hard for the team of late and maybe he could have come in for Danns. Unfortunate for Wheater and his injury looked like he was getting to his good games like when he was in the PL but the fear of a worse injury keeps him out, do we know how bad the injury is?

7:30pm

7:29pm

Lovely set up here at Derby, except for the fact the press bench is set too far away from the fixed seats (at least for people without freakishly long arms).

I'll be spending most of the night perched on the edge of the seat like I am about to dive into a swimming pool.

7:27pm

7:22pm

I don't endorse that last message by the way - but each to their own. Personally think Moritz is a good player.

7:21pm

7:17pm Tue 11 Mar 14

mbeastall says

Don't quite get the fuss and hype about Moritz. He strikes me as the sort of player who thinks he's better than what he is and this is backed up by his arrogant, cocky and lazy attitude on the pitch.
I wonder if he'd be a Wanderers player if he hadn't have played for Palace.

tokyodave says

Switch to 4-4-2 has been behind recent revival, needs to shove Moritz up there. Looking forward to 4-3-3 when Beckford returns...when will he be back? Well overdue...

7:20pm

I really am that cool.

7:20pm

Match also sponsored tonight by Graham Penny Auctions - a name I know only too well having watched every episode of Homes Under the Hammer. Ever.

7:19pm

Announcer has his intonation all wrong. Now reading the teams out and all the players sound like questions.

Bogdan? Hutton? Knight? etc

7:18pm

Quite a bizarre announcement on the tannoy. Think it was to introduce "Rammy" the Derby mascot. 

7:16pm

In fairness the coat isn't that big - it's roughly the same size as me.

7:16pm

It was gorgeous weather on the way down to Derby today. Temperature has certainly dropped now. Knew it was a good idea bringing my big coat.

Would agree with that tweet. Dougie damned if he does, damned if he doesn't sometimes.

7:08pm

7:05pm

7:05pm

As for the formation switch, we'll see how deep Moritz/Medo/Spearing plays. I think they played a similar team at Leicester but Moritz played much further forward alongside Beckford. Reckon that was 4-4-2.

7:04pm

7:03pm Tue 11 Mar 14

J J J J says

bit baffled by dropping wheater, guessing this means 4-2-3-1, would have stayed 4-4-2 regardless

7:03pm

There have been a few rumours knocking around that he wants to go out on loan - must ask about that after the game!

7:01pm

Eagles has an eye infection, so he's not on the bench, but it's Lonergan's absence that I'm most interested in.

7:01pm

Wheater took a knock on the ankle on Saturday. DF and Wheats said he'd be OK on Saturday but my guess is that they are not willing to risk it. I'm looking forward to seeing Hutton.

7:00pm

We'll start with Mason - I think that one is tactical. Moritz will play from deeper and I doubt anyone will dispute that he deserves a shot.

If it ain't broke don't fix it , why change a winning team! Another Dougie disaster looming this evening now , listen to the fans DF two up front works it's been proved ! Only reason DF went with the two was thanks to Ian holloways boring comments.

Dougies downfall in the past has been trying to be too clever with team selection,as we aren't currently in Europe he doesn't need to keep making unforced errors.

Why drop a goal a game striker in mason? I understand that DF wants to strengthen his defence against an attacking side like Derby, but Moritz doesn't contribute much defensively.

Why does Freedman drop in form players change a winning formation of two strikers up front and at the end of the game takes his lone striker makes no sense and yes a draw against Derby is good but we might have had a win which is even better!
