Two quickfire goals for Tigers cancel out Charlie Austin opener at KCOM Stadium

Hull 2-1 Southampton

Hull City scored two goals in two second-half minutes to claim a comeback victory over Southampton, their first win in nine Premier League matches.

The Tigers looked to be heading for a seventh straight league defeat when Charlie Austin stroked home a sixth-minute penalty after Curtis Davies fouled Maya Yoshida in the area.

But Hull refused to lie down and Robert Snodgrass, who came on as a first-half substitute, equalised on 61 minutes when he coolly finished from Sam Clucas's cut back. Snodgrass then turned provider when his free-kick was headed home by captain Michael Dawson.

Hull goalkeeper David Marshall saved from Austin and Clucas headed off the line late on as Southampton chased an equaliser but the home side held on to secure their first league win since 20 August.
