The score is 6-0 on aggregate to Derby after two meetings this season, with County claiming a 2-0 victory at the KC Stadium under Paul Clement before a 4-0 triumph at the iPro Stadium under Darren Wassall.

That might suggest that the Rams should be favourites to claim a play-off win over Hull City, although football is a strange game and the Tigers can’t be any worse than they were when getting a thrashing at Pride Park a few weeks ago.

Indeed, Hull warmed up for this clash with a 5-1 tonking of Rotherham, with Steve Bruce delighted to see how fresh his team looked after a long season and this is a shrewd manager who has been in these types of situations many times before.

Most of the City first-team have graced the Premier League and it could be that Mohamed Diame, Jake Livermore and Robert Snodgrass provide too much class in the middle of the park for Derby.

That’s especially when you think that George Thorne has broken his shin which means that the Rams miss arguably their best defensive midfielder capable of breaking up the play and orchestrating attacking moves.

Derby don’t boast a fortress-like record at the iPro this term despite twelve wins and the Rams have failed to keep a clean sheet in the past four matches.

With away teams often faring well in the play-offs, we’re happy to back a Hull City attack spearheaded by Abel Hernandez and set to make a potential return to the Premier League.
