Hull City v Derby County: Stats, predicted line-ups and more…

The midweek EFL Cup clash between Hull City and Derby County will be re-staged this weekend in the Championship.

Derby travelled to the KCOM Stadium in midweek to beat Hull 4-0, with goals from Florian Jozefzoon, Martyn Waghorn and Mason Mount, as well as an own goal from 18-year-old Brandon Fleming.

With 19th place Hull looking for revenge and sixth-placed Derby looking to add to their momentum, FLW provides you with a stat pack ahead of tomorrow’s clash.

Hull are expected to play the same line-up that lost at Stoke City last weekend, although there will be one enforced change.

Evandro was sent off in that game, with Jon Toral his likely replacement.

Derby may be forced into a change with Tom Lawrence an injury doubt so Harry Wilson could return after missing four games out injured.

Frank Lampard might also choose to start Florian Jozefzoon ahead of Mason Bennett after the Dutchman netted in midweek.

Dave Nugent will be hoping to keep his place, but Waghorn’s goal in midweek could give Lampard a selection dilemma.

Derby have edged the recent meetings between the two sides, winning four and drawing one of their last six matches.

Lawrence has scored three league goals this season but in his absence, Derby’s main man will be Mount, who has two league goals and four in all competitions.

Nigel Adkin’s men could be without one of their leading scorers, with Jackson Irvine missing the last two games with a thigh strain, although Frazier Campbell – who also has two goals – will be raring to go.

In terms of the stats from this season, Derby are taking more shots per game and making more tackles per match.

But the two teams after level after four games when looking at aerial duel success rate and dribbles per game statistics.
