Rampant Leeds tame Tigers

Leeds' stuttering start to the season ended in the most spectacular of fashions as they beat local rivals Hull 4-1 at Elland Road.

Having lost their first two games of the npower Championship campaign and with off-field protests against chairman Ken Bates causing a stir, manager Simon Grayson desperately needed a win against City and his players duly delivered.In a near-faultless performance, Ross McCormack, Tom Lees - whose own goal had brought Hull level - Robert Snodgrass and Ramon Nunez all found the net against a Tigers side who came into the game well-fancied.Having won at Ipswich on Saturday and with Leeds running with a threadbare squad owing to injury and suspension, a first Hull win in West Yorkshire in 24 years had looked to be an option but Nigel Pearson's men were rarely in the game.
