Hull City vs Derby County
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 1 September 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: KCOM Stadium, Hull.
Hull City and Derby County are set to tackle each other for the second time in just four days on Saturday when the Tigers will be looking to fix the dreadful impression from the 0-4 League Cup loss on Tuesday.
It was the third defeat in last four games for Nigel Adkins’ troops who will have a very tough task bouncing back against the in-form Rams here.
The visitors, on the other hand, broke into the top six in the league standing with back-to-back clean sheet wins over Ipswich Town and Preston North End.
Frank Lampard’s men thus made it four clean sheet wins in last five matches across competitions and they head into this in much higher spirits following a demolishing League Cup victory over the same opposition.
Hull City vs Derby County: Head-to-head
- Derby completely dominated this match-up in the most recent history.
- The Tigers did not score a goal in last four meetings with the Rams who won three and drew one in the process.
- Overall, the H2H stats is all level at seven wins apiece coming into teams’ 18th encounter.
Hull City vs Derby County: Prediction
Midfielder Mason Mount has been in good touch lately for the Rams. He bagged a goal in each of last two wins, including the mid-week thumping of Hull City, and he could inspire the new success for the Lampard side here.
Adkins’ troops took just four points in first five games of the season, the 2-3 win over Rotherham united away at AESSEAL New York City Stadium being their lone success of the campaign so far.
We can hardly see the hosts recovering from a devastating cup loss as the value looks to be massive in backing the away win at the 2.55 odds.
The Rams are also worth backing to keep their fifth clean sheet in six games here at the sky-high odds of 3.25.
The value is huge if we know that the Tigers failed to find the back of the net in three of last for outings in all competitions.
