Derby County – Hull City
Derby County meets Hull City in a match for the 6th round of the English Championship.
Derby: The home team was beaten by Sheffield United last time out, a game which they didn’t help their own cause thanks to some very poor defensive errors. After 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, the home team is in the 12th position, having won 7 points so far. They look to be creating chances on a consistent basis, something that bodes well going forward. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 4 of the last 5 matches. However, their offence has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 4 of the last 5 matches for this competition.
Hull: On the other side, the away team bounced back from successive defeats to beat Bolton 4-0, a game in which they created good chances. They are currently in the 8th position of the league, with 7 points won, after 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses. Their offence has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 5 matches for this competition. Therefore, one thing is certain, the visitors tend to play open and attractive football.
Conclusion: All in all, with both teams inconsistent, and Hull’s attack-minded strategy, the best option is to go for a lot of goals. As both teams have plenty of attacking talent, they should hit the net.
