Derby County boss Wayne Rooney and his players have ended a run of three matches without victory in the English Championship following the 3-1 win at home to Hull City in their latest game in the division this week. Wayne Rooney and his players are battling to avoid the drop in the English Championship this seasonafter Derby County were docked 21 points by the EFL (English Football League).
Wayne Rooney has been able to push Derby County closer to the safe spot on the Championship standings thanks to the impressive run of four wins and one draw from five games over the course of December and January. The run of 13 points from 15 points preceded the aforementioned three-game winless run which started with the 2-1 loss at in-form Nottingham Forest last month. The away defeat to the former European champions was followed by the 2-2 home draw with Birmingham City with the Rams netting two late goals to rescue a point against Lee Bowyer and his players. The 2-0 defeat at Huddersfield Town at the start of this month made it three games without a win.
Derby County manager Wayne Rooney and his players stopped the winless run with the home victory over the Tigers who are also in the conversation as far as the fight to stay in the Championship is concerned.
Hull City went behind to a Craig Forsyth goal after 19 minutes before the in-form Tom Lawrence added a second goal with eight first half minutes left to play. The goal from Forsyth and Lawrence gave the Rams a two-goal lead. Frank Ebosele put the game beyond the reach of the visitors two minutes into the second half with the third goal. Hull City scored a consolation goal in the 65th minute through an own goal from Craig Forsyth.
