Former Wales international Saunders was a whirlwind replacement for Sean O’Driscoll following his surprise sacking last week, and quickly oversaw a fortuitous 1-0 win over Crystal Palace that ended Rovers’ 19-game winless streak.

They had looked like they were set for a return to type tonight, though, when England Under-21 striker Martyn Waghorn scored his first goal for Hull following a Neil Sullivan error to give the Tigers a deserved half-time lead.

Derby County 1 Barnsley 1

Steve Davies’ second-half penalty rescued a deserved point for Derby but the Rams missed out on the chance to go top of the npower Championship following their draw with Barnsley.

The Rams dominated for large spells at Pride Park but were largely denied by a magnificent performance from Barnsley goalkeeper Luke Steele.
