HULL CITY v DERBY COUNTY BETTING PREVIEWHull City romped to a 3-0 away win over Derby County at the iPro on Saturday in an unexpectedly one-sided affair, leaving the Rams praying for an unlikely turnaround. They are unbeaten at home in the Championship since way back in November, though that result did come against Derby, who left Humberside with a 2-0 win. The Tigers have scored at least 2 goals in their last 5 home league matches
With no fresh injuries picked up at the weekend, Bruce will select from the same group of players as the teams meet again, with Eldin Jakupovic is set to continue in goal ahead of Allan McGregor. Abel Hernandez is expected to lead the line in a 4-4-1-1 formation with Mohamed Diamè behind him. Nick Powell remains out injured.
Derby County did a double against Hull City in this regular Championship season by keeping clean sheets but they were extremely poor in the play-offs 1st leg. The Rams have now lost twice in a row and enter this match without a win in four matches. Derby have not won by three or more goals on the road since December 2014
Derby Head Coach Darren Wassall may be tempted to hand a rare start to proven goalscorer Darren Bent alongside Chris Martin and Tom Ince. Bradley Johnson and Johnny Russell were both substituted on Saturday, and Jacob Butterfield and Andreas Weimann could come in respectively. Their key midfielder George Thorne remains out with a broken leg, suffered in the 1-0 defeat against Ipswich Town in the final match day of the regular season.
