A late penalty helped Hull to a somewhat fortuitous 2-1 win over Derby at the KC Stadium.

Peter Taylor's side started brightly with Stuart Elliot (pictured) opening the scoring, although Derby drew level as Inigo Idiakez scored from the spot.

However further drama was to follow as The Tigers were handed their own penalty, and Stuart Green secured the win with six minutes to go.

Northern Ireland star Elliot scored his second of the season after just 11 minutes as Hull took the lead, the forward converting with a well-taken strike.

The early setback spurred the visitors into action and Stern John was unlucky not to equalise as he saw his superb volley rebound off the crossbar, and the striker also had a goal disallowed for a foul on Damien Delaney just after the break.

The Rams were rewarded for their persistence as Leon Cort felled Seth Johnson in the box on 56 minutes, and set-piece specialist Idiakez converted with aplomb past Boaz Myhill.

Phil Brown's side pushed on and could have taken all three points as Johnnie Jackson and Marcus Tudgay threatened, but the visitors were undone as Marc Edworthy fouled Chris Brown with the clock ticking down.

Green slotted in to hand Taylor's men the lead, and they had to suffer frayed nerves as Derby had another goal disallowed just two minutes later when Johnson headed in.

To deepen Brown's woes Davies saw red in the closing stages for dissent.
