‘Gets better and better’, ‘Absolutely everwhere’ – Many Derby County fans react to display from key man in Hull win



A number of Derby County supporters have been reacting to the influential performance of midfielder Max Bird during their 1-0 win away to Hull City on Wednesday night.

Derby delivered a strong performance against Hull and were able to remain a solid unit with Phil Jagielka impressing on his debut for the club.

Sam Baldock was also able to score the only goal of the contest on his first appearance for the Rams in the Championship to help them to a crucial three points.

Bird was another player to standout for the Rams at Hull and the midfielder delivered an excellent display where he did all of the jobs that were asked of him by Rooney.

The 20-year-old was involved heavily in Derby’s build-up play and he had 56 touches of the ball and also managed to produce one key pass as he looked to make things happen for the Rams going forwards. While Bird was also able to make one tackle and make an important block as well during the 90 minutes.
