History of the Hull City v Derby County fixture

Derby County travel to take on Hull City at The KC Stadium on Saturday afternoon, having the edge over their hosts in previous meetings. The visitors have won 2 of the 21 previous games, with the hosts winning just 9.

The last time the two teams met at Hull City was well over fifteen years ago, back in March 1987, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Second Division match.
