Sensational Waghorn, Inspirational Mount – The Best and the worst rated Derby stars vs Hull City

Full time: Hull City 0-4 Derby County

Derby County beat Hull City 4-0 in the second round of the League Cup away at the KCOM Stadium. It was a dominant performance from Frank Lampard’s men, who looked in control for most of the 90 minutes.

First half goals from Martyn Waghorn and Florian Josefzoon gave a good platform for the Rams to build on. For the Tigers, Brandon Fleming’s own goal 11 minutes from time sealed the fate for them, and summed their night up.

Mason Mount scored very late to give a dominant look to the scoreline.

Here’s how the players fared in this League Cup tie:

Derby player ratings

Kelle Roos (7/10)

Made two good saves at the end of the first half to keep the two-goal lead intact. Apart from that, had a comfortable game.

Andre Wisdom

Andre Wisdom (6/10)

Picked up an early yellow card, which isn’t good for a full-back, but the former Liverpool man settled into the game very nicely.

Richard Keogh (7/10)

Looked strong physically and made a vital block to deny Nouha Dicko in the second half.

Fikayo Tomori (6.5/10)

One or two shaky moments to start, but picked his game up and became more solid as minutes passed by.

Scott Malone
Scott Malone

Scott Malone (6/10)

Returned from injury and produced a fine display at left-back. He was steady and comfortable throughout the game.

Tom Huddlestone (7/10)

The former Spurs man was a bit rusty to start off with, however, regained control and began to influence the game very soon.

Bradley Johnson (7.5/10)

A wonderful assist for Waghorn’s goal and put in a decent display in midfield.

Mason Mount (8/10)

Showed some class throughout the game and scored his customary goal. He has really settled in well at the club.

Martyn Waghorn
Martyn Waghorn

Martyn Waghorn (8/10)

Excellent finish to get his goal. Delivered a strong performance where he always was a threat to the Hull City defence.

Jack Marriott (6.5/10)

Denied a goal via a wonderful save from the Hull City goalkeeper. Could have at least scored one goal given the chances he got.

Florian Josefzoon (7.5/10)

A super strike to get his goal. It was probably his best performance in a Derby shirt. The manager must be proud of that.

Substitutes

Max Lowe (Subbed on after 71 mins) (7/10)

Brought on to replace Malone, who had just returned from an injury. Provided an assist late on.

Duane Holmes (Subbed on after 71 mins) (6/10)

Kept things ticking in the midfield.
