Manager Phillip Cocu has made three changes to the side which beat Wigan Athletic on Wednesday night for this afternoon’s trip to the KCOM Stadium to face Hull City (3pm kick-off).
A late winner from Graeme Shinnie ensured the Rams took all three points on Wednesday. Chris Martin provided the assist for his strike, and he returns to the starting line up this afternoon to replace Martyn Waghorn who reverts to the substitute’s bench.
Martin joins skipper Curtis Davies, who is fit to play despite a facial injury sustained in midweek, in starting against his former club whilst there is also a start for Max Lowe who has replaced Scott Malone at left back.
Kieran Dowell returns to the starting line-up for the first time since the defeat against Brentford at the end of August.
Youngsters Max Bird and Morgan Whittaker are named amongst the substitutes.
Here are the teams in full:
Hull City: Long, Lichaj (C) De Wijs, Burke, Toral, Grosicki, Bowler, Bowen, Elder, Irvine, Silva Lopes.
Substitutes: Ingram, Tafazolli, Stewart, Eaves, Honeyman, Kingsley, Pennington.
Derby County: Roos, Shinnie, Bielik, Dowell, Lawrence, Clarke, Martin, Holmes, Lowe, Davies (C), Bogle.
Substitutes: Hamer, Wisdom, Waghorn, Marriott, Bird, Malone, Whittaker.
