Michael Turner emerged as the latest hero of Hull's remarkable Premier League ascent as his header earned a 1-0 home win over West Ham.
After stunning wins at Arsenal and Tottenham, Turner struck in the 51st minute at the KC Stadim on Sunday to sink Gianfranco Zola's ailing Hammers as the Tigers roared back up to third place.
Turner outjumped Matthew Upson to head home the impressive Andy Dawson's corner from the right.
The home side deserved their latest win for their attacking intent and Phil Brown's men looked dangerous on the counter-attack right up to the final whistle.
The Hammers were left to rue two Carlton Cole misses but summoned little by way of their quest for an equaliser.
Cole hit an easy first-half effort straight at Boaz Myhill when he should have scored, then scythed an even better chance against the underside of the bar.
