Hull City take on Derby County for the second time in a week on Saturday. After the 4-0 humiliation in the cup, City will have a lot to prove whereas Frank Lampard’s Derby will want to replicate the performance that saw them into the next round of the Carabao Cup.

Deadline day signings Chris Martin and Tommy Elphick may be thrown straight into the side, more so Martin as Nouha Dicko is a doubt for the game. If Elphick is to play however, it is likely to be off the bench with the pair having had one training session with the squad at most.

Jackson Irvine will also miss out, which is a blow for Nigel Adkins as the Australian has played well in recent games and is currently joint-top goalscorer with Fraizer Campbell. This could mean a first start for David Milinkovic on the left as Todd Kane played midweek as well during a busy schedule of games.

Derby will be without ex-Tiger Curtis Davies so another ex-player in the shape of Fikayo Tomori looks set to play in the defence alongside Richard Keogh, much like mid-week where the pair played well together.

Tom Huddlestone is also back in contention to start after he returned from injury to play in the cup and could go straight into the starting team.

This game is likely to go one of two ways for The Tigers. We will either see a massive response against a team who embarrassed City mid-week or Derby’s quality will show through and they will continue their march for the playoffs in a bid to return to the Premier League.
