Two of English football’s great fallen giants go head-to-head, both determined to get out of the third-tier this year.
Both currently occupy an all-important play-off spot, with Bolton Wanderers currently one place and one point better off.
The Trotters beat Exeter 2-0 last time out, with Conor Bradley and Dion Charles the scorers.
Ian Evatt’s team have lost just two home matches this season, a record they’re seeking to preserve here.
Derby County meantime hammered Forest Green at the weekend; Nathaniel Mendez-Laing breaking the deadlock, before David McGoldrick scored a hat-trick.
The Rams had actually drawn three on the spin beforehand, derailing their promotion push.
Nevertheless, Paul Warne’s team haven’t lost since 21 October, so will travel to the University of Bolton Stadium confident of leaving with a result.
