Crystal Palace 2-0 Hull
Clinton Morrison began repaying his 2m transfer fee from Birmingham with a goal as his second Palace spell began.

Morrison scored with a simple tap-in to convert a cross from Tom Soares, who did well to reach the byline.

Just before Morrison's goal Hull hit the woodwork when Nicky Barmby's placed shot rebounded back into play.

With 90 minutes on the clock, Andy Johnson broke clear and tucked the ball past Boaz Myhill to give Palace a third successive league win.

  • Palace assistant boss Neil MacDonald on their 4-3-3 formation:
    "They need to get to know each other. Andrew Johnson looked more comfortable when Clinton Morrison came off and we just had two up front.

    "But they have to adjust to what the manager wants, and we will work at it.

    "We are still not at 100% but we've got some momentum and we are in high spirits.

  • Hull boss Peter Taylor:

    "I'm delighted with the way we have played against one of the promotion favourites.

    "We matched them for long periods and passed the ball well. Each game we play we are getting more confident.

    "You have to be patient when you come here and we were. We had chances and restricted Palace in the second half apart from a sloppy goal at the end."
