Dame N'Doye's second-half brace handed Hull a vital chink of light in their Premier League survival bid as Steve Bruce's men won at Crystal Palace.

N'Doye wasted several chances before first tapping in from two yards, then blasting home at the end as Hull claimed their first win in seven matches.

Victory ensured Hull stay above the drop zone, but Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United lie ahead.

Palace striker Glenn Murray wasted the first chance of the match, blasting straight at Steve Harper from four yards after James Chester failed to clear a free-kick. N'Doye then provided the miss of the half, sliding in on Brady's dangerous left-wing cross, only to block it.

When the goal finally arrived, there was no opportunity for N'Doye to miss. Aluko's diagonal ball sent Robbie Brady in behind Zaha. Speroni pulled off another good save, but the ricochet dropped to N'Doye, who scored from two yards.

Arsenal loanee Sanogo headed home late on for Palace, only for Mark Clattenburg to chalk off the goal for a foul. As Palace pressed, Hull raced clear and replacement Gaston Ramirez fed N'Doye, who blasted home.
