Full report

Bournemouth started the game with real intent and opened the scoring in the opening five minutes after Junior Stanislas excellent free-kick hit the post and fell into the path of Charlie Daniels – who had the simple task of volleying the ball into an empty net.

Winger Jordan Ibe was playing like a man possessed on the left flank, with the Tigers defence in sixes and sevens, and the former Liverpool man did well to get the better of his marker time after time. Ten minutes after the goal he got to the byline and cut the ball back to Callum Wilson. However, Wilson's effort hit the bar from seven yards out, much to the frustration of Eddie Howe as Hull equalised moments later through Ryan Mason.

Mason pounced on a loose ball just outside the area and fired in a first-time shot that deflected off Steve Cook and into the back of Artur Boruc's net.

Despite the error, Cook made amends on his 200th appearance for the club when he rose highest to put his side back into the lead.

The ball from Stanislas was superb but it wasn't the end of the first bit of action for the tricky winger because of a rash challenge from Robert Snodgrass.

The former West Ham man made no mistake to double their advantage, before the floodgates eventually opened in the second half.

After the break, another three goals were added to compound manager Mike Phelan's misery in what was his first game in charge as full-time boss.

Stanislas combined well with substitute Joshua King and Adam Smith to get on the end of a driven cross for a neat finish on the hour mark.

And in the final ten minutes Callum Wilson got himself on the end of a pinpoint cross from King to head home the fifth, before Dan Gosling's left-footed drive just outside the area made it 6-1.
