Dennis Wise's spectacular overhead kick proved the turning point as Coventry City shrugged off their poor away form to keep their recent momentum going with a 2-1 win at the KC Stadium.
Trailing 1-0 at half-time to Stuart Elliott's goal for Hull, the Sky Blues drew level thanks to Wise and took all three points when Stern John guided in a Gary McSheffrey cross.
Wise's second appearance for City was no less eventful than his debut against Derby, with a booking, a goal and an injury.
Manager Micky Adams said afterwards: 'He's just a quality man as far as I'm concerned.
'People have their opinions about him but they say class is permanent and I think he showed it there with his goal and his general performance.
'Dennis is on his way to hospital with a shoulder injury. He got clothes-lined, which is fair enough - perhaps he deserved it!
'He's had two games for us and been fantastic. Dennis is Dennis - love him or hate him - but as Coventry fans we all love him.'
On the game, Adams added: 'Overall, I'm delighted with the character we've shown yet again and that was a nice win. We're looking at the top end of the table for the first time this season.
'We got bullied a little in the first-half of the game and I wasn't happy with that.
'I thought if we could get the ball out wide to James Scowcroft and Gary McSheffrey then we could pick up the tempo and in the end we came out as worthy winners.'
Hull boss Peter Taylor did not disagree with that assessment.
He said afterwards: 'I thought we did well in the first half but we knew that maybe it wouldn't be enough.
'Their strikers were better than our defenders. I thought their strikers dictated to our defenders and I'd like it have been the other way around.
'I can't ask for any more in terms of effort but we've got to stop conceding goals. The header from John looked fantastic but he was unmarked and that's crazy.
'We are off to Luton on Saturday and we've got to bounce back.'
