Back In Time: Three Memorable Wins Against Derby County

16 January 2020
Ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship trip to Pride Park to face Derby County, we take a look back at three memorable wins against the Rams…

Pride Park Play-Off Delight (2016)
Hull City took a big step towards the Championship play-off final with a convincing 3-0 victory over Derby County in the first leg of their semi-final at Pride Park.

Steve Bruce’s side played the away leg to perfection, seeing off early pressure from the Rams before silencing the home crowd with two goals in the space of ten first half minutes.

Abel Hernández opened the scoring with his 22nd goal of the season, firing a low shot past Scott Carson on the half hour mark.

And it was 2-0 before the break when Moses Odubajo saw his shot from outside the box find the back of the net via the aid of a deflection off Jason Shackell.

A well-drilled defensive showing followed after the break and when Derby sensed one last opportunity to pull a goal back eight minutes into added time as they forced a corner. However, the Rams were left shell-shocked when, following a swift counter-attack, Andy Robertson made it 3-0 to add further gloss to the win.

Away Day Delight Continues (2012)
Hull City continued their impressive away form in the first half of the 2012/13 campaign as they registered a 2-1 win against Derby County.

The home side began the brighter at a misty Pride Park but it was the Tigers who opened the scoring midway through the first half. Skipper Robert Koren was the scorer as he volleyed home in impressive fashion from 15 yards following excellent wing play by Stephen Quinn.

Derby had excelled with the ball at their feet, but their exquisite equaliser came from a set-piece after Jacobs hammered home a meek clearance from Abdoulaye Faye from the edge of the penalty box in first-half injury-time.

Stung by his part in the leveller, the Senegalese international responded in perfect fashion after the break as he nodded in a devilish corner from Manchester United loanee Robbie Brady.

The Rams pushed for a late equaliser but the resolve of Steve Bruce’s side was rewarded with a seventh win from 12 Championship away matches, following previous victories on the road at Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday, Bristol City, Birmingham City, Nottingham Forest and Watford.

Cameron On The Comeback (2011)
Cameron Stewart made an impressive return to action from long-term injury as he was on the scoresheet in a 2-0 win for the Tigers at Pride Park.

With Nick Barmby in caretaker charge following Nigel Pearson’s departure to take the vacant job at Leicester City, the Tigers opened the scoring on 17 minutes. Liam Rosenior embarked on a rampaging run down the right before cutting into the penalty area and teeing up Fryatt, who swivelled and shot into the top corner from 12 yards out.

Aaron Mclean drilled wide when he had a half-chance before Stewart extended the lead with his first senior goal six minutes after the opener. The winger made a mockery of his markers with some great skills before ­lashing a shot past Fielding and into the roof of the net.

The hosts struggled to create any clear chances after the break, with Tomasz Cywka seeing an effort blocked by Jack Hobbs just before the hour mark before Rams substitute Chris Maguire threatened with an overhead kick after the break. However, the Tigers comfortably held on for the three points to ensure a winning start to life in management for Barmby.
