Bywater keeps Derby in it

Derby keeper Stephen Bywater was the hero after a late double save denied Bolton all 3 points. Bywater parried Christian Wilhelmsson’s drive before recovering to tip Nicolas Anelka’s follow-up against the underside of the crossbar with just 11 minutes left.

The Rams had taken a 19th-minute lead through Kenny Miller’s low drive before Anelka equalised in the 32nd minute with a shot from the edge of the box which took a wicked deflection off Claude Davies.

The two underfire bosses would've probably been happy with this 1-1 draw, however, the pressure on Sammy Lee shows no sign of decreasing until Bolton start hitting form.
