Marlon King took full advanatage of Newcastle's deepening crisis to fire Hull to a famous 2-1 victory with a well-taken double.
The striker converted a 34th-minute peanlty and then slotted calmly past Shay Given nine minutes after the break as the Magpies slipped to an ignominious defeat.
Debutant Xisco, who had earlier passed up a series of good chances, claimed his first goal for the club nine minutes from time, but there was to be no escape for the home side, who had Danny Guthrie sent off deep into injury-time.
