FT 2-0

No-one had a bad game.

A couple of mistakes from Tomori, a mistake from Holmes and a combined mistake from Bryson & Bogle were, I think, the only black spots on the whole game. When they were so occasional you can remember them all, that's probably a good thing.

Roos didn't put a foot wrong. He was beaten twice, but it's quite easy for a shot to beat a GK when it also goes wide 😄 
Bogle struggled with Grosicki's pace all game, but didn't do too much wrong. Was very good going forward.
Keogh his usual excellent self.
Tomori had 2 good chances from corners, and played well. One mistake went unpunished as Hull dallied, the other he recovered himself with an excellent tackle.
Malone didn't have a lot to do defensively, but was probably our best attacking player behind Waghorn.
Huddlestone solid. Nothing of note.
Holmes with an absolute howler early on that Hull somehow didn't score from - but very good for the rest of the game. Beautiful assist for the first goal.
Bryson with a good game. I've been critical of him a lot this season, but he was much improved on the ball today and pressed well off it, helped out the defense at a couple of important times too.
Jozefzoon decidely average. Good movement and positioning, created a lot of space for himself and others. But balanced out the good work by being woeful on the ball.
Wilson very quiet, but did his part. Pulled the defenders around and came deep at good times. Was in a lot of space for a couple of late breakaways but wasn't seen by Waghorn or Malone.
Waghorn MOTM even without considering the goals. A nuisance. Strong. Held the ball up well. Made good runs. Great all round game. 2 goals to cap it off. Although lucky to get a second jab at the first goal - initially well saved by Marshall.

Mason Bennett did some good work, but was his usual rough-around-the-edges self.
Andy King didn't do much, but he didn't put a toe wrong when he had the ball. Made decisions quickly, passed and moved with good pace. Looks classy.
Ashley Cole touched the ball twice. Both times he found a Derby player. 'Nuff said. Good to get a winning debut though, and for Waghorn to get his ovation.

An enjoyable game to watch, all in all. Not very open. Hull pressed well in our half, but weren't very cohesive in their own. Derby were very patient, very professional, and resoundingly deserved to win.

Efficient, effective and made it look easy in all fairness. I'm not sure Mount is going to get back into this team when fit, Holmes and King both looking good today.
