Matej Vydra has scored four goals for Derby this season – one fewer than he managed in the whole of 2016-17

Derby County scored four goals in a clinical first-half display to secure a comfortable Championship win over Hull.

Matej Vydra’s free-kick put the hosts ahead, before Hull’s Sebastian Larsson missed the chance to equalise when he fired a penalty over the crossbar.

Vydra rounded off a neat move, Curtis Davies headed in against his former club and Bradley Johnson turned in from six yards to make it 4-0 by half-time.

Midfielder Johnson curled in his second from 20 yards to wrap up a 5-0 victory.

Derby scored five goals in a league fixture for the first time since November 2014, while Hull have conceded 23 times in their past eight league matches.

The half-time scoreline suggested Derby had dominated proceedings at Pride Park but, while they controlled the game against a new-look Tigers side containing three debutants, it was the Rams’ exemplary finishing which put the result beyond doubt by the interval.

The game turned on Larsson’s spot-kick failure, a penalty being awarded after Wales winger Tom Lawrence – making his first league start for Derby – held down Ola Aina inside the area.

In contrast to Larsson’s wayward effort, Vydra’s two goals were strikes of the highest quality and the Czech forward was only denied a first-half hat-trick by Allan McGregor’s excellent save at his near post.
