PREVIEW: Hull City v Derby County - LC Rd 2

Yeah, let's not beat around the bush, the Second Round of the League Cup is not really a game anybody sets the pulse racing to - and this Tuesday won't be any exception to that rule, as Hull City of the Championship, hosts Derby County of the Championship, before the two sides meet again four days later at the same venue, in the Championship.

City boss Nigel Adkins will be making several, if not wholesale changes for the tie, that could see all eleven players replaced from the team that faced Stoke City on Saturday. Amongst those candidates, goalkeeper George Long could make his Tigers debut, following his summer move from Sheffield United.

Derby County manager Frank Lampard is destined to follow suit and will likely make numerous changes to his side, despite turning around a 2-1 away defeat to Millwall ten days ago, into back-to-back home wins over Ipswich formerly and Preston latterly, that has propelled the Rams into the early running top six of the Championship table.
