City beaten at the KC Stadium

Published Add your comment

Hull followed up Tuesday's draw with Premier League leaders Chelsea by defeating Manchester City 2-1 at the KC Stadium to climb out of the relegation zone.

Phil Brown's side had not won since November but were buoyed by their performance against the Blues and deservedly took a 31st-minute lead through the impressive Jozy Altidore.

City then found themselves two down nine minutes after the break thanks to a rocket from George Boateng and, although Emmanuel Adebayor quickly pulled one back, they rarely threatened to equalise.
