Football: WONDER WINGER; HULL 2 SWANSEA 1.
But it was a far from convincing win and manager Brian Little admitted: "It was a very bitty game - we never got any rhythm."
The first quarter was dreadful but Hull began to hit their stride towards half-time, and Beresford's perfect cross on 34 minutes was glanced into the top corner by Lawrie Dudfield.
And Julian Johnsson volleyed his first goal for the club two minutes after the restart when Swansea failed to clear a Beresford cross.
Hull had three penalty claims turned down and a Gary Alexander shot was cleared off the line as they threatened to roll over the visitors.
But slack defensive play allowed Stuart Roberts to put Swansea back in the game, leaving Hull to face a nervous last 18 minutes.
