Iain Dowie tasted victory in his first home game as Hull boss as the Tigers gave their survival hopes a major boost with a 2-0 win against Fulham.

The hosts took the lead in the 16th minute when Chris Smalling fouled Jozy Altidore six yards out and former Fulham midfielder Jimmy Bullard found the top corner from the spot to silence the boos of the visiting fans.

George Boateng and Steven Mouyokolo both cleared off the line from Zoltan Gera as Hull rode their luck but Craig Fagan's looping header just after half-time secured the three points that allowed the Tigers to draw level with 17th-placed West Ham.
