SUNDERLAND, England (AP) — Hull came from behind to beat Sunderland 3-1 on Friday to give Steve Bruce’s side its first Premier League win in 11 games.

Hull had not claimed three points since a win against Crystal Palace on Oct. 4, and trailed within 30 seconds after Adam Johnson punished an error by captain Curtis Davies.

However, Gaston Ramirez levelled from distance in the 32nd minute with Hull’s first goal in 333 minutes of football. James Chester then made it 2-1 in the 51ist and Nikica Jelavic completed the comeback victory with a late close-range effort.

Hull climbed out of the relegation zone to sit 16th, while Sunderland are three points further ahead in the 14th.
