Bolton Deals Derby County a Cruel Blow

Legendary commentator Martin Tyler summed it up best in tonight’s Bolton against Derby match when he mentioned how so many late goals happen in Premier League matches. Just minutes after delivering the commentator’s curse, Bolton’s Stelios Giannakopoulos scored the only goal of the match which dealt a cruel, cruel blow to Derby County.

The Rams, without a doubt, deserved a point in this match and were unlucky not to win it especially after hitting the crossbar twice in quick succession. This was a Derby County side that played football, passing the ball on the ground to player’s feet and making intelligent runs. Craig Fagan almost scored early in the match during a one-on-one with Jaaskelainen.

If Derby can continue playing like this and fix their lack of concentration in the final few minutes of matches, the Rams have a fighting chance of narrowing the gulf between them and Fulham and Sunderland.
