KINGSTON UPON HULL, United Kingdom (AFP) - Southampton extended their unbeaten run to six matches on Tuesday with a 1-0 win over Hull in their English Premier League clash.

A 69th-minute goal by Jose Fonte was enough to give the visitors the points and leave Hull's Steve Bruce to wait a little longer for his 100th win in the Premier League as a manager.

Victory saw Mauricio Pochettino's attractive and talented side move above Newcastle - who host Spurs on Wednesday - and to within two points of seventh-placed Manchester United, who are away at Arsenal on Wednesday.

Defeat halted Hull's mini-revival and leaves them only three points above the relegation zone.
