Striker Chris Brown's return to the KC Stadium was an unhappy one as the Canaries' unbeaten start to the season came to an end.
Brown spent three months on loan at Hull in the autumn of 2005, scoring once in 13 appearances.
And his search for a first goal for Norwich proved fruitless on an afternoon when goalscoring veterans Dean Windass and Dion Dublin instead stole the spotlight.

He said: “It was a disappointing result. Once we got back to 1-1, I thought we looked quite comfortable. These things happen.

“It wasn't a pretty game. The gaffer warned us before the game that would be the case and he was proved right.
“I think when it was 1-1 we were looking to push on but you've got to defend for 90 minutes. At the end of the day, they've scored two disappointing goals from our point of view - but good goals for them.
City finished the match with four strikers - king-sized trio Brown, Dublin and David Strihavka, plus Jamie Cureton - desperately trying to summon up an equaliser.
Said Brown: “It was just a case of trying to get everything forward and hope for the best. We had a chance in the last second with Curo but it was just one of those things.
“Dion's goal was unbelievable. We're just disappointed we couldn't hold on.”
