So, thanks for joining on the night that Derby almost, almost made Football League play-off history.

The Rams needed to overturn a three-goal first-leg deficit and found two first half goals, to give them real hope of achieving the seemingly-impossible.

But Hull held on after half-time to keep alive their dreams of an immediate return to the Premier League.

You can read more in Gary Smee's match report here. It's a happy night on Humberside - will they be celebrating again at the end of May? Good night.

Darren Wassall adds that tonight is not the night to discuss his future and he wants to concentrate on his side's battling performance.

Has he managed the Rams for the last time? He was initially appointed until the end of the season.

Hull reaction

FT: Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Hull defender Curtis Davies tells Sky Sports: "We knew they (Derby) were a threat.

"Well take it anyway. We need to be much better than that if we want to go up.

"Luckily, we held strong. But Wembley isn't the goal - the goal is to go up. We need to go there and do the business.

Hull manager Steve Bruce tells Sky Sports:

"You have to pay credit to Derby who put up a hell of a show.

"In the first half hour we couldn't get anywhere near them. Then we had to dig out and show a bit of resilience which has seen us through in the end.

"But big compliments to Derby who were terrific on the night."

Hull Reaction

FT: Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Hull defender Michael Dawson tells Sky Sports: "It's relief. That's all it can be. We had to stand strong, it wasn't a good enough performance.

"We know it wasn't good enough - but we're there. We're gunna enjoy it.

"Look at the relief - that's all it is. We'll go to Wembley in the final and we'll enjoy it.

"It'll be a Yorksahire derby and we look forward to it."

"Derby ran out of steam"

FT: Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Steve Harper

Former Newcastle keeper on BBC Radio 5 live

"Hull were flat, Derby were excellent, they played at a high tempo, but ultimately ran out of steam late on. Hull's performance on Saturday got them through, for Derby it was too little too late."

The play-offs continue

FT: Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

If you enjoyed that drama from the KCom Stadium, do join us again tomorrow for the second leg of an intriguingly-poised League Two tie between Accrington Stanley and AFC Wimbledon - the Dons lead 1-0 from their home leg.

Then on Thursday, Walsall host Barnsley, with the Tykes leading 3-0, in League One.

And on Friday the semi-finals will conclude at the Den for Millwall v Bradford (3-1 agg).

"Hull City were lucky"

FT: Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Steve Harper

Former Hull keeper on BBC Radio 5 live

They've come here and given it a real go. We thought Andrew Robertson's injury-time goal on Saturday would be the tipping point and it's proved to be just that. Hull City were a little bit lucky tonight because they were poor."

HULL REACH WEMBLEY

Hull fans

Some Hull fans are on the pitch. There's a flare. There's joy. There's some harsh taunting of Derby players - they don't deserve that after their brave effort.

But Hull held on - they go through to face Sheffield Wednesday at Wembley on 28 May for a place in the Premier League.

Derby win a corner. Scott Carson, the keeper, is up!

But Hull clear the danger. Is that time up for Derby?

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

It's all long balls into the box now, from Derby. They're desperate. It's prayer time for both sets of fans.

SUBSTITUTION (Hull)

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Mo Diame comes off for Hull and Sam Clucas comes on.

Can the hosts hold on? Derby have two minutes left to find a goal.

Four minutes have been added on. Four minutes folks.

SUBSTITUTION (Derby)

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

The visitors make one last throw of the dice - Abdoul Camara replaces Marcus Olsson.

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

A big boost for Hull - they win a free-kick from a foul by Jeff Hendrick, deep in the Derby half. A chance to wind down the clock a bit more?

More than that - they force a good, one-handed save from Scott Carson in the Derby goal.

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Derby have men forward in a promising position but a Chris Martin backheel is misplaced and they give away possession.

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Can there be a late twist? Hull want to wind down the clock. Derby have a little over five minutes plus stoppage time to make it 3-3 on aggregate and force extra-time.

SUBSTITUTION (Derby)

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Time for a hero? Darren Bent is on.

He replaces Derby's opening goal scorer, Johnny Russell.

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Derby will be very conscious that time is starting to run out.

It's been a brave, valiant effort - but have they got enough about them to complete a remarkable comeback?

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

The delivery is whipped in dangerously but Derby head the ball away from danger. Ahmed Elmohamady then does well to win another Hull corner. This will really please the hosts. They have the ball where they want it.

This time it's aimed for Curtis Davies but he heads over.

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Derby win back possession and look to pick out Chris Martin with a very long ball upfield but Eldin Jakupovic gathers in his area.

Straight down the other end, Hull win a corner themselves.

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Hull enjoy their longest passage of play in Derby's half for the entire game but it ends when Ahmed Almohamady runs then ball out for a goal kick to the visitors.

But they come forward again and this time win a corner. Can they finish off this tie?

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Tom Ince shoots from outside the area but it's way, way off target. A waste.

Derby are still searching for the leveller in the tie. Hull are sitting back, dangerously.

GREAT SAVE!

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Derby are almost in on goal with Tom Ince but, as he cuts inside, Michael Dawson cuts in to clear for a corner.

Then Eldin Jakupovic is called into action for pretty much the first time of the entire tie, and he does excellently to save a curling Chris Martin shot.

The keeper can't have seen that until very late because of a crowd of players.

Derby keep coming and keep coming but eventually the ball runs out for a goal kick.

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

A lengthy period of Derby pressure ends with Will Hughes shooting well wide from outside area. Hull can regroup.

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Derby make a few attempts to get in behind the Hull back line but the hosts hold strong.

They've got some experienced defenders back there, have the hosts - and they'll need to draw on all their years in football in these final 22 minutes.

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

How often have we been here before in the Championship play-offs: one goal in it, both sides going for it, 25 minutes to go? These matches deliver year after year.

You have to love the play-offs! This is yet another belter, and the tension is just crazy.

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Mohamed Diame strides towards the Derby penalty area and tries a left-footed shot but he drags it low and wide. That lifted the home crowd though, that's for sure.

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Hull try to break and get the ball up to Robert Snodgrass, who could be through on goal past the last man, but Jason Shackell makes a vital intervention.

SUBSTITUTION (Derby)

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Andreas Weimann can't continue and he goes off, to be replaced by Tom Ince.

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Derby come forward again but Jeff Hendrick's ball into the box is too heavy and goes long for a goal kick.

Meanwhile, Derby's Andreas Weimann is limping awkwardly. He looks hurt.

Hull's top scorer Abel Hernandez tries his luck with a volley on the turn from a relatively tight angle but it goes wide across goal.

YELLOW CARD (Shackell)

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

Derby's Jason Shackell trips Moses Odubajo and he goes in the book.

One Hull goal would surely take the sting out of this tie.

Hull 0-2 Derby (3-2 agg)

A Robert Snodgrass free-kick for Hull strikes the wall. That was too low to threaten the Derby goal.

Oh boy, what Steve Bruce would give for a home goal now. The tension around the KCom Stadium is clear for all to see.
