PREVIEW: The Rams are on the road again as they travel to Hull

Updated: Oct 28, 2019

Phillip Cocu will be looking for his side to put in a more convincing performance following a dramatic and albeit late win against Wigan midweek.


The Opposition

Hull come into the game in 15th, just one spot below Derby.

New boss, Grant McCann, has typically setup the Tigers in a 4-1-4-1 so far this season with key man Jarrod Bowen typically operating on the right-hand side. Somewhat like Wigan on Wednesday, Hull have been more than happy to let the opposition dictate possession, averaging 43% a game so far this season.


Previous Meetings

The Rams won on both occasions that they faced Hull last season, the first a 2-1 victory at the KCOM stadium thanks to a late Florian Josefzoon winner.

A Martyn Waghorn brace was the difference in the reverse fixture, as Derby ensured the double over Hull last season at Pride Park with a 2-0 victory in February.


Team News

Derby have no notable changes from the current list of long-term absentees, however Chris Martin could come back into the starting eleven following Wednesday night.

Hull are forced into at least one change, as Josh Magennis was sent off in the game against Nottingham Forest in midweek.
