Goals by Ricardo Fuller and Liam Lawrence at either end of their 2-0 Barclays Premier League win at home to Hull flattered Tony Pulis' side, who were given a real test by the relegation-threatened Tigers.
The Jamaica international, whose brilliant individual effort beat West Ham last week, capitalised on a sixth-minute error by defender Paul McShane to clip a shot past Boaz Myhill.
Hull, who played the last 15 minutes with 10 men after captain George Boateng was knocked unconscious by a Tuncay Sanli overhead kick, deserved more for a spirited second-half performance but conceded late on.
