SUMMARY: Derby County 2-0 Hull City

Not an afternoon to remember for Hull City, as Derby County beat the Tigers for the third time this season - and it was an ex-Tiger in striker Martyn Waghorn that did the damage - as Nigel Adkins' march up the Championship table with his squad came to an abrupt halt.

Ram and blast

City started well, Grosicki struck an upright after Campbell fed in, but the fact remained, the Polish international should really have given the Tigers the lead. Both teams were cancelling each other out, but Derby were becoming more assertive as the half wore on. Then, with a huge suspicion of off-side, Waghorn netted a 41st minute for the Rams - at the second attempt - to break the deadlock and give the hosts a half time lead.

The Tigers worked their way back into the match and almost levelled on the hour mark. Grosicki crossed, but Irvine's glancing header was just wide of the post. The Rams punished City for the profligacy when Waghorn swept in on 71 minutes to double Derby's lead. Irvine then missed a simple volley from close range late in the game - and with that, the game was up for the visitors, who struggled to match their recent winning performances.
