NIck Barmby celebrated his first match in charge of Hull City with an away win at Derby County.

Cameron Stewart started after coming through the international break with no reaction following his return to training. Nicky Barmby was fit but did not play due to wanting to concentrate on management, while Martin Pusic was still out along with Martyn Waghorn. Seyi Olofinjana has returned to training along with Andy Dawson and Richard Garcia but none of the trio were risked.

Liam Rosenior embarked on a rampaging run down the right before cutting into the penalty area and teeing up Fryatt, who swivelled and shot into the top corner from 12 yards out.

Aaron Mclean drilled wide when he had a half-chance before Stewart - back after a long injury lay-off - extended the lead with his first senior goal in the 23rd minute.

Stewart`s effort from the left-hand side of the area went through Frank Fielding`s hands and into the roof of the net.

Derby would have been back in the game just before half-time had Peter Gulacsi not tipped Ben Davies’s curler past the post.

The hosts struggled to create clear chances after the break. Tomasz Cywka had an effort blocked by Jack Hobbs just before the hour mark.

At the other end, Robert Koren saw shots blocked by Mark O`Brien and Jason Shackell.
