Hull City ended the 36-game unbeaten home run of promotion rivals Nottingham Forest today.

Anthony Gerrard played despite limping out of last weekend’s defeat to Cardiff City, meaning Jack Hobbs was named a substitute.

Brad Guzan has returned to Aston Villa after two months on loan so a fit-again Vito Mannone starts in goal. Loanee David Amoo is included in the squad after joining from Liverpool.

Derby County have signed Hull keeper Matt Duke on loan for the rest of the season after sending Stephen Bywater on loan to Cardiff City.

Duke, 33, who has joined as cover for first-choice keeper Frank Fielding, played under Rams boss Nigel Clough at Burton Albion.

Clough said: “We know Matt well. He has good experience in the Championship and Premier League, and he’s ideal for us.”

The former Alfreton Town and Sheffield United man joined Hull in 2004.

On the pitch, Matty Fryatt (64) broke the stalemate for Tigers.

Hull still retain hope of sneaking into the top six this season, but assistant manager Craig Shakespeare refused to get carried away by this success.

“To come here and take that record is a great achievement, but it means nothing if we don’t perform in the other games,” he said.

“Confidence-wise, who knows, it could be something massive, you can never tell.”

Nottm Forest: Camp, Gunter, Chambers, Morgan, Konchesky, Anderson, McGugan, Majewski, Cohen, Earnshaw, Tudgay. Subs: Smith, Adebola, McCleary, McGoldrick, Moloney, Bennett, Rodney.

Hull: Mannone, Rosenior, Chester, Gerrard, Dawson, Koren, Harper, Evans, Simpson, Fryatt, Mclean. Subs: Oxley, Hobbs, Garcia, Cairney, Barmby, Amoo, Belaid
