HULL, England (AP) — Mohammed Diame's third goal in four matches and Nikica Jelavic's fourth of the season handed Hull its first win since the opening day of the Premier League season, beating a lackluster Crystal Palace 2-0 Saturday.

Senegal midfielder Diame headed home Andy Robertson's cross on the hour mark at KC Stadium, before Jelavic secured the points with a clinical counter-attack in the 89th minute.

Steve Bruce's side had conceded 10 goals in its previous four league matches, and another three in the League Cup loss at West Brom, prompting a return to last season's preferred 3-5-2.

Hull provisionally jumped from 16th to eighth with nine points from seven matches, one point more than Palace.
