Many Hull City players took to social media to celebrate a massively important 2-1 win against Swansea at the KCOM Stadium.

A double from Oumar Niasse after coming on as a substitute gave the Tigers breathing space in the match, with a late Alfie Mawson consolation unable to give the Swans a way back into the match.

One of the more important landmarks in the game was that Curtis Davies returned to the pitch after a hamstring injury and he enjoyed the experience of being back on the KCOM turf.

Despite claiming the win, Tom Huddlestone believes the side still need to find something extra after switching off near the end and allowing Swansea a goal back.

Ahmed Elmohamady, Kamil Grosicki, David Meyler and Andrew Robertson were also pleased with the result, with the latter celebrating his 23rd birthday with a win.
