Derby   0 - 1   Hull

Derby 0-1 Hull

Derby 0-1 Hull

Hull's Championship play-off push maintained its momentum with a first victory at Pride Park as Derby's alarming slump continued.

Miles Addison squandered an early header before Daniel Ayala and Jamie Ward did likewise as Derby threatened.

Hull responded after the break, Matty Fryatt and Aaron Mclean firing narrowly off target from the edge of the box.

But Anthony Gerrard broke the deadlock with a close-range finish from Robert Koren's corner to seal the points.

Tigers boss Nigel Pearson saw his side make it nine league games unbeaten and move up to eighth in the table on the strength of only one defeat in their last 18 Championship matches.

Derby, by contrast, are without a win in their last eight league outings and have been beaten in six of their last seven home fixtures.

Addison nodded off-target early on before former Hull loanee Ayala squandered a chance of his own in the 19th minute.

Ward was next to go close with a header just before the break.

Derby were forced to replace goalkeeper Stephen Bywater at the start of the second half, with James Severn coming on for his first league appearance for the club.

The visitors were obviously keen to test the youngster early on, but Fryatt and Mclean failed to hit the target.

That was not the case in the 57th minute when the substitute had to parry a Mclean effort.

At the other end, Bradley Guzan produced a similar save to thwart Cywka before Gerrard struck in the 71st minute from Koren's curling delivery.

The Rams desperately searched for an equaliser, with Ayala and Ben Davies forcing Guzan into saves in the final 10 minutes.

But Hull held out and remain unbeaten on their travels in the Championship since the end of September.
