Football: Rocastle is instant hit.

Hull City.................. 3

Scarborough......... 0

David Rocastle emerged from the shadows to star in Hull's second League win of the season.

"Eyebrows were raised when I agreed to come here and some wondered if I was mad," said Rocastle, who joined on a six-week loan deal from Chelsea.

Rocastle made the perfect start, scoring the second goal and proving a major influence. Chris Bettney set up Hull's seventh-minute opener for Richard Peacock before Rocastle pounced on Kevin Gage's pass to put Hull two up after 20 minutes.

The home side made sure of maximum points when Michael Quigley scored in the 65th minute.
