Hull produced their best result for a decade by knocking Wigan out of the Carling Cup following their 1-0 victory.

A stunning Stuart Elliott volley just after the half-hour mark at the JJB Stadium was enough to send the Coca-Cola Championship side into the third round.

In 1997 the Tigers beat then Premiership Crystal Palace 1-0 in the first leg of a second round tie at their old ground of Boothferry Park before going through on the away-goals rule at Selhurst Park.
