Hull City moves away from drop zone with win over Crystal Palace

LONDON (AP) — Dame N'Doye scored twice to give Hull a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday that lifted the team away from the Premier League relegation zone.

N'Doye put his team ahead in the 51st minute with a tap-in and added the second goal by finishing off a counterattack in injury time. The win puts Hull in 16th-place, level on points with Leicester and one point ahead of 18th-place Sunderland in a tight battle to avoid the drop.

Palace fell to its second straight home loss but is safe in midtable.
