Hull City vs Derby County Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides who just met on Tuesday in the League Cup. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Hull are looking to bounce back from a 2-0 Championship road loss at Stoke on the previous weekend. In midweek, they were dumped out of the League Cup 4-0 by a Derby side they will face here again. Derby made it back-to-back league victories with a 2-0 defeat of Preston with a goal each for Mason Mount and Richard Keogh. Mason Mount was also one of the scorers in their 4-0 League Cup defeat of Hull on Tuesday night with Martyn Waghorn, Florian Jozefzoon and an own-goal completing the scoring. A head-to-head victory in midweek means the Rams are unbeaten in their last four against the Tigers winning three of these. The Humberside have failed to net in any of their last three against the East Midlands outfit.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The visitors are marginal favourites for the game and they might be popular given they beat Hull 4-0 in midweek. I would not read too much into that result as it was the League Cup and changes were made to both side. The Rams have more depth but that does not matter so much in a one-off Championship fixture. Mason Mount netted in midweek and now has three in four appearances on the road in all competitions and looks over-priced here in the first goalscorer market. I expect Hull to make tactical adjustments following their defeat in midweek and they will be set up not to concede early so backing the second 45 minutes to be the highest scoring half makes sense.

Hull City Preview

The Tigers have struggled to start the season taking just four points and winning just one of their opening five. They sit 19th in the Championship table with the expected goals data table having them as low as 23rd. At the KC Stadium, they have lost both in the league and each of the previous four when looking over two seasons. If you add in the League Cup then City have blanked in two of their three at their own ground this season. Hull have struggled for goals netting just five times with Jackson Irvine and Frazier Campbell both grabbing two each. They have conceded nine which gives them the joint-fourth worst defensive record in the division.

Hull City Team News

James Weir (meniscus) and Jackson Irvine (knock) are doubts while Ondrej Mazuch (knee) is a doubt and Evandro is suspended.

Derby County Preview

It has been a reasonable start to management life for Frank Lampard who has three victories and two defeats from his opening five fixtures. The Rams sit in sixth place in the league table though the expected goals data feels they should be 13th. Away from Pride Park, they have won three of four if you add in their appearances in the League Cup. Mason Mount has found the back of the net in three of his four starts when on the road. Derby have seen four of their five Championship fixtures feature exactly two or three goals scored. The East Midlands outfit have been leading going into the interval just once this season.

Derby County Team News

Curtis Davies (hamstring), Harry Wilson (groin) and Jayden Bogle (ankle) are doubts while George Evans (knee) and Marcus Olsson (cruciate) are long-term absentees. The Rams must also decide who from the impressive midweek performance deserves to retain their spot.
