NORWICH, England (AP) — Ryan Bennett headed home a late winner as Norwich beat Hull 1-0 on Saturday to move five points clear of the English Premier League relegation zone.

Norwich's first home win since November eases the pressure on manager Chris Hughton, who has been told his job is safe so long as he keeps the club outside the bottom three.

A frustrating day for Hull was made worse by the last-minute sending-off of Tom Huddlestone after picking up a second yellow card.

New Hull signing Nikica Jelavic made his debut and hit the post in the second minute in the visitors' best chance.
