Sports Mole looks forward to Tuesday evening's Championship meeting between Hull and Derby.

Hull City will be looking to reignite their Championship playoff push when Derby County visit the KC Stadium on Tuesday evening.

The Tigers have slipped out of the automatic promotion places after Saturday's narrow defeat at Brighton.

However, Steve Bruce's side are level on points with Leicester and Watford above them in second and third respectively.

Next up is a visit from Derby, who squandered a two-goal lead at lowly Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Manager Nigel Clough could start with Mark O'Brien after the 20-year-old failed to come through the match at Wednesday.

The reverse of this match was just before Christmas and it was Hull who took the win by two goals to one at Pride Park.
