Hutchinson in contention for recall at Hull

Sam Hutchinson could be back in the Wednesday squad for tomorrow night’s trip to table-topping Hull.

Hutchinson has been sidelined with a knee injury since the win at Birmingham earlier this month but Carlos Carvalhal says the player is ready to travel with the squad for the televised game at the KC Stadium and he could consider putting him straight back into the starting line-up, either in midfield or in the back four.

Fernando Forestieri is expected to come back into the team following his one-match ban for the QPR game in midweek and Glenn Loovens could figure after returning to the bench against Rangers after his groin problem.

Derby’s victory over Blackburn on Wednesday took them back above us into fifth place and we are now in sixth, three points clear of Birmingham who have a game in hand, and nine points behind leaders Hull.
