After an impressive start, Hull City are facing many difficulties in recent times. The 0-3 loss to Queens Park Rangers in the last match made the home team MKM Stadium fall to 12th place in the rankings. Welcoming Derby County at home is also considered a difficult challenge for Hull City when history is not on their side.
It seemed that the jubilant 4-1 victory at Preston North End on the first day of his military career would help Hull City get the best spirit for the next matches. However, teachers and coaches Nigel Adkins could not maintain their stability when receiving results that were not as expected.
Not only had to receive defeat in the last 2nd round of the English First Division, but before that, the "tigers" had to accept to stop the game in the Carabao Cup this season after letting Wigan pass on the 11m mark. The saddest thing is that in recent matches, Hull City have all had the home advantage of MKM Stadium, but they were unable to take advantage of their opportunities. In the upcoming 3rd round, the opponent of coach Nigel Adkins and his students will be Derby County. Although in terms of form, Hull City is still better, but having had to receive 7 defeats in the previous 10 meetings will be a concern for them.
As for Derby County, their performance in the English First Division this season continues to show many of their difficulties. Obviously, Derby County's current performance compared to last season has not improved much when they have had to receive 1 defeat and only draw 1 after the last 2 rounds.
Looking back at the last season, Wayne Rooney's teachers and students still could not get out of their difficult situations when they also had to rely on the last round to be able to successfully stay in the relegation. In this year's season, Derby County certainly needs to be much more determined to be able to move towards its main goal of relegation in the tournament. The upcoming third round of the Pride Park Stadium home team will have a trip to the field of Hull City, which is not in the best form today. This is clearly a very good opportunity for coach Rooney and his students to hope for the first victory of the season because more or less losing only 2 out of 10 previous meetings will be a great morale. with them.
