Hull City vs Derby County Match Report


Tigers Unlucky As They Fall To Second Defeat In A Week

Hull City were unlucky as Derby County beat them for the second time in a week at the KCOM Stadium today. It looked as though City could’ve gone on to win after falling behind to a Martyn Waghorn penalty, but a late goal from Florian Jozefoon ended The Tigers’ hopes.

Derby were gifted a goal just 20 minutes into the game as Jozefoon played a through ball into David Nugent who took the ball into his stride. Jordy de Wijs made a poor tackle from behind and made it an easy decision for the ref and he pointed to the spot. Waghorn’s penalty into the bottom right corner sent David Marshall the wrong way to put Derby 1-0 up.

The rest of the first half was poor, with lots of half chances but no real big chances. Markus Henriksen, Fraizer Campbell and Jarrod Bowen had opportunities but nothing came of them with them all missing the target.

Derby had a couple of their own first half chances too. A shot from the edge of the area was parried out by Marshall and David Nugent’s header from the resulting corner came off the top of the bar and City were able to clear.

The second half was all City. First through an over the top through ball that came to Jarrod Bowen but he could only put his shot into the side netting.

Three minutes later the score was level. Evandro’s sublime through ball curved round the covering centre back into the path of Todd Kane. He struck the ball first time from the edge of the area past Derby keeper Scott Carson.

Evandro then had a chance of his own as Campbell pulled the ball back to Evandro in the area. His effort looked as though it was going in but it drifted just wide of the post.

City made three very attacking changes as Nigel Adkins went for the three points against a very open Derby side but it backfired and Derby found space down the left wing. The ball was pulled back from the by-line to Jozefoon who hit the ball first time underneath Marshall to put Derby into what was an undeserving lead.

The Tigers were able to create one more chance before fulltime as the ball fell to the feet of Bowen six yards out but his effort was well blocked near the line to give Derby all three points.

On another day City could’ve easily won this game. Adkins will be very pleased with the way the players reacted to the defeat midweek and with the additions of Tommy Elphick and Chris Martin, City should be able to stay up if they play like that more often than they have so far this season.
