Hull vs Derby Predictions

Hull put in a very impressive counter attacking display on Saturday as they unleashed swift attacks on their hosts that Derby just couldn’t deal with. The result was a 3-0 home defeat for Derby thanks to goals from Abel Hernandez and a 98th minute goal from Andy Robertson to go with Derby’s own goal in between.

This will be incredibly difficult for Derby to overturn at the KC Stadium, especially since they come into this game winless in four games and having not won an away game by more than two goals since December 2014.

These three winless matches at the end of the Championship season saw this talented Derby side finish 5th in the Championship table, four points ahead of Sheffield Wednesday and five adrift of Hull above them.

It was a surprise that Hull finished so low considering the first half of the season they had. They were playing excellent football well into the new year, but a downturn in form that eventually led to a six match winless streak and a return of just two wins from 12 games saw them drop away from the automatic promotion spots. However, their 3-0 hammering on Saturday put them a step closer to a swift return to the Premier League, and they will know that when they are in form there isn’t a single side in the Championship that can stop them.

Hull’s win on Saturday was their 5th in their last seven outings in the Championship. The most crucial aspect of it is that it was away from home, because at the KC Stadium they have only lost one Championship game all season, and that was back in November. It was against none other than Derby County though, so who knows what could happen.

Hull do know how to keep it tight at the back, but with just a comfortable lead I think a bit of complacency could sneak in. Derby have already proved that they can penetrate the Hull defence this season, and they have scored in ten of their last 11 away games in all competitions. Hull have only managed to keep two clean sheets in their last seven home matches as well.

With the stakes being so high it’s a given that Derby will be looking for a goal straight from the offset, but I don’t think they can hold a Hull attack at bay for the whole match, especially considering the hosts have scored in each of their last seven home games and won 5-1 last time out. This makes odds of 21/20 for Both Teams to Score look good to me, and I’m going for a 1-1 draw at 11/2 as well.
