Sky Sports pundit predicts Hull City v Derby County outcome

Ian Holloway

Hull City and Derby County will face each other in the Championship playoff on Tuesday evening.

Former Queens Park Rangers and Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has predicted on Skysports.com that Hull City will win against Derby County on Tuesday evening.

Hull will take on Derby at home in the second leg of the Championship semi-final playoff.

The Tigers won the first leg of the tie 3-0 away from home at the iPro Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Steve Bruce’s side will head into the game against the Rams as favourites, and Holloway expects them to win it 2-0 to go through to the Championship playoff final with ease.

“Hull were magnificent on Saturday,” the former Leicester City boss predicted on Skysports.com. “They performed in a way I expected them to do all season. I expect them to see the job through very easily on Tuesday.”

A footnote added: “OLLIE PREDICTS: 2-0.”

Derby have one of the strongest squads in the Championship, and the way they crumbled against Hull at the weekend was astonishing.

It is hard to see the Rams stage a comeback at the KC Stadium on Tuesday evening, even if they score an early goal.

Over the course of the season, Hull have been the better side, and they should be able to progress to the Championship playoff final with ease.
