Brett Pitman played the roll of supersub at Ashton Gate on Saturday after coming on to grab an equaliser for City against Hull.
A draw was no more than City deserved, they created most of the chances and forced good saves out of ex-City keeper Adriano Basso.
But Hull finally buckled in the 79th minute when Pitman ruled out Robert Koren`s opener for the visitors.
For much of the match the hosts were left wondering where a goal could come from after Marvin Elliot, Nicky Maynard, Albert Adomah and Jamal Campbell-Ryce all saw good chances go to waste. And Basso was in top form.
City`s first effort on goal came just after ten minutes when Marvin Elliott tested Basso and he made a good save.
Basso was needed again on 18 minutes, this
time Campbell-Ryce was the man that he denied with a great save.
Tom Cairney and Koren both had a go at James` goal from distance but neither had any luck and then Adomah forced Basso into yet another save.
But after the break, it was the visitors who found the net, Koren and McLean combining well to create a chance for Koren who fired the ball into the bottom corner for 1-0.
Neil Kilkenny was the next City player to be denied by Basso just after the hour mark.
But with around ten minutes left on the clock. A high ball from Skuse fell for Pitman and he bundled the ball over the line for City`s long awaited first home goal of the season.
Pitman and Adomah forced another couple of saves out of Basso while at the other end, Cairney fired hopelessly high and wide of the target.
City (4-4-2): James; Skuse, Wilson, Nyatanga, McGivern; Adomah (Bolasie 90), Kilkenny, Elliott, Campbell-Ryce; Stead (Pitman 63), Maynard (Taylor 63).
Hull (4-4-2): Basso; Rosenior, Hobbs, Chester, Dudgeon; Brady, McKenna, Cairney, Koren (Evans 71); Waghorn, McLean (Fryatt 64).
