Stephen Quinn ended Hull's Burnley hoodoo and closed Steve Bruce's men to within three points of Cardiff at the npower Championship summit with a 1-0 win away to Burnley.

Cardiff have two games in hand and can double their advantage with victory over Leicester on Tuesday night, but Hull are now their closest rivals for the title after capitalising on Watford and Crystal Palace's weekend woes to go second.

Following a listless first-half largely devoid of goalmouth action, Quinn found space in the penalty area and a calm finish in the 66th minute proved enough for City to end a run of seven consecutive defeats against Burnley, who came closest through substitute Sam Vokes when the game was goalless.
