Michael O'Connor snatched an 89th-minute winner to give Scunthorpe their first league success over Humber derby rivals Hull in over seven years.The Iron midfielder latched on to Freddie Sears' ball into the penalty area to despatch a clinical finish beyond Hull goalkeeper Matt Duke when the game appeared to be heading for a goalless draw.Scunthorpe bounced back from last week's 4-1 home defeat to Leeds with a spirited display in a typical derby encounter and have now won their last three away matches in the npower Championship.Hull, who had their fair share of chances, are now without a win in their last seven league games and only goal difference prevented them from slipping into the bottom three.
