Hull are now 3/1 in bwin’s Championship relegation odds after the 2-1 home defeat by Derby left them hovering just above the bottom three.
On-loan Todd Kane cancelled out Martyn Waghorn’s penalty before Florian Jozefzoon netted the winner for the Rams with two minutes left.
It was a second win at the KCOM Stadium in five days for Derby, who cruised to a 4-0 triumph in the Carabao Cup.
The Tigers remain in the bottom four but head coach Nigel Adkins tried to take the positives out of his side’s display after making numerous changes from Tuesday.
Adkins said: “There were some really good performances against a team who will be in the top six who have invested heavily.
“The passion was there for all to see, the quality was there for all to see and the team spirit was there.”
Ipswich are now 13/10 after they were still left searching for their first win of the season following a 1-1 draw with Norwich at Portman Road.
Gwion Edwards’ deflected shot put Ipswich in front in the 57th minute but their nine-year wait for a win over their visitors was extended by Moritz Leitner’s 71st-minute equaliser.
Boss Paul Hurst said: “I have got to stick with it, the team have got to stick with it and the fans as well – and that win will come.
“You know what derby day is like and the atmosphere lived up to that but particularly our fans. The atmosphere was really through the roof and I feel for them that we did not get the result I felt we deserved.”
Battle Royal on the cards
Reading are now 5/4 to go down as they too are yet to taste victory this season following a 2-1 home reverse by Sheffield Wednesday.
The Royals survived on the final day of last term but pressure is mounting on manager Paul Clement after a fourth loss left them bottom.
He said: “I take responsibility for this run. It’s normal that the manager does that.
“I have a lot of control of a lot of situations. The way we train, the way we prepare and the tactics.
“But I’ve also asked the players to do the same and be very honest in their reflections on themselves.
“The squad is united, don’t worry about that, and it is frustrating for everyone at the moment.”
Rotherham are the 4/5 favourites for an immediate return to League One after a fourth defeat in six games in losing 1-0 at Wigan.
Millers manager Paul Warne said: “I thought we were the better side in the second half. I’m proud of the effort and how we went toe-to-toe with them but I’m very disappointed to come away with nothing.”
Next up for Steve McClaren’s men is a trip to Bolton, with the Trotters 9/4 in the Championship relegation odds after coming from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Preston.
