Jon Walters marked his debut with two goals as Hull upset the form book with a
crushing win at Carlisle.
The on-loan Bolton marksman set Peter Taylor's men on the way to their first
win in eight with a curling 20-yard strike in the 20th minute.
And Stuart Elliott
converted Richie Appleby's cross to double the lead after 39 minutes.
Hull added a third just before half-time when Walters cleverly turned Paul
Raven just inside the Carlisle half and sent Jamie Forrester racing away to
Elliott tapped in his second three minutes into the second half after
Forrester's shot was palmed out by Matthew Glennon.
And Walters (67) broke from
his own half to score again, before Craig Farrell snatched an injury-time
consolation with a free-kick.
