City have gone joint top of the Championship after inflicting only a second home defeat of the season on Derby County.
Robert Koren scored against the run of play in the first half but the home side equalised right on half time through Michael Jacobs’ shot from just outside the box.
Abdoulaye Faye, back in the team due to the suspension of Alex Bruce, scored his fourth of the season after 50 minutes and City hung on with some confidence. With other matches still to be played, the Tigers may not stay joint top over Christmas but to be there at the halfway point is a tremendous achievement by Steve Bruce and his team. Gonna be a cracking Christmas, this. Match report later.
