Derby County left it late against Hull City but eventually got their 2-1 win at the KCOM Stadium. This win leads the Rams to within two points off the top, with only five games played in the season.

Florian Josefzoon stuck two minutes from time to seal the deal for Frank Lampard’s men, who led in the first half through a Martyn Waghorn penalty. Eight minutes into the second half, Todd Kane equalised for the hosts, however, it didn’t count for anything in the end.
