Derby would be 16th in the Championship table had they not been hit with a 21-point deduction, with Wayne Rooney‘s side winning eight, drawing 12 and losing nine of their 29 league games this term.
The Rams are currently 23rd in the division with 15 points, seven points from the safety of 21st spot, meaning that the club still have an uphill battle to secure what would be a sensational survival.
Rooney’s side were in stunning form between December 11 and January 15, winning four of their five Championship matches, but they have only picked up one point from their last three league games, drawing with Birmingham City, in addition to losing to Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield Town.
Derby were last in action away to Huddersfield on February 2, suffering a 2-0 defeat courtesy of late goals from Duane Holmes and Jordan Rhodes in West Yorkshire.
The Rams have won their last two league games against Hull, though, including a 1-0 victory when the pair locked horns for the reverse fixture earlier this term.
Derby will be missing Richard Stearman on Tuesday through suspension following his red card in the defeat to Huddersfield last time out.
As a result, there is expected to be a spot in the back four for Krystian Bielik, who was required off the bench on Wednesday following Stearman’s dismissal in the early exchanges.
Louie Sibley, Festy Ebosele and Lee Buchanan returned to the starting side at the John Smith’s Stadium, and it would not be a surprise to see all three feature from the first whistle once again.
As for Hull, Andy Cannon, Josh Emmanuel, Mallik Wilks, Callum Elder, Lewie Coyle and Alfie Jones will miss the contest through injury.
New signings Allahyar Sayyadmanesh, Marcus Forss and Liam Walsh were named on the bench against Preston, with Matt Ingram coming into the side between the sticks.
