KINGSTON UPON HULL, United Kingdom (AFP) - Hull ended a disappointing run of form in emphatic style on Saturday as they recorded their best-ever result in the Premier League with a 6-0 hammering of struggling Fulham.

Hull, who had won just twice since September prior to the game, scored all their goals in the second-half to move seven points clear of the relegation places while the visitors remain third from bottom with their defence once again having let them down.

They have conceded 41 goals in 19 games, the worst in the Premier League, and must hope to get positive results at home to fellow relegation candidates West Ham and Sunderland early next year to ease their plight.

Hull dominated the first-half without managing to beat David Stockdale, deputising for first choice 'keeper Maarten Stekelenburg, who failed to recover from a calf injury.
