Hull City vs Derby County
England – League Cup
Date: Tuesday, 28 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: KCOM Stadium, Hull.

Hull City picked up their maiden victory of the new Championship campaign seven days ago when they bagged three goals past Rotherham United, but they failed to back up such success falling 2-0 to Stoke City at Bet365 Stadium. Can they bounce back from a poor kick off to the new season and claim a confidence-boosting victory over Frank Lampard’s Derby County in the second round of League Cup?

The Rams ended the unpleasant two-loss streak with back-to-back clean sheet wins over Ipswich Town and Preston North End at their Pride Park Stadium and they look determined to challenge the promotional play-offs this term. Mason Mount was the man who inspired the 2-0 victory over the Lilywhites on Saturday with a goal and an assist. He was also one of two goal-scorers in a 0-2 victory over Oldham Athletic in the League Cup first round.

Hull City vs Derby County: Head-to-head

Hull City still have a positive head to head record with Derby County even though they’ve failed to find the back of the net at all in past three meetings with the Rams.

Derby won two and drew one of last three H2H encounters and they will certainly head into this in higher spirits aiming to keep the positive head to head trend going.

It is interesting to note that none of last six head to head games saw goals at both ends.

Hull City vs Derby County: Prediction

Nigel Adkins clearly has troubles with the lack of meticulousness in his team’s defensive line as Hull City conceded at least a goal in all of five league games so far. The Tigers shipped two to both Rotherham United and Stoke City in past two rounds and they could struggle to stop Derby’s attack on the occasion.

If we add that the Rams did not concede a single goal in last three h2H meetings with Hull City, we just have to see the value in backing the visitors not to lose at the 1.48 odds. The away win is priced up at 2.62, while you can have Derby to net two or more goals in the match at the 2.37 odds.
