Hull's winning run stretched to five games with a 6-0 victory at home to struggling Bolton.
The East Yorkshire side had looked prime relegation candidates earlier in the season and were even bottom of the Sky Bet Championship in October.
But head coach Nigel Adkins has somehow revived Hull's fortunes with a sequence of outstanding results.

This latest triumph was thanks largely to a virtuoso display from Kamil Grosicki, who scored twice and also teed up Evandro for Hull's second goal of the game.
Chris Martin, Jarrod Bowen and substitute Nouha Dicko then put the gloss on an utterly comprehensive Hull victory.
Bolton offered resistance in the first half but faded awfully after the interval. They rarely looked like scoring and remain in deep relegation trouble.
