Hull ended their six game losing run in all competitions with a narrow 18-14 victory over Salford City Reds at The Willows.
But Hull coach Richard Agar will have been pleased with the way his side hit back, scoring three unanswered tries prior to half-time.
Richard Whiting then added a third try on the back of penalties from Salford, to give the away side a slender 16-10 advantage going into the break.
Hull had a try chalked off for obstruction after the interval, and Salford took advantage, Goulding grounding the ball from a Myler kick.
Both sides continued to fight out a stalemate, but Hull extended their lead to four points with a penalty courtesy of Danny Tickle.
And that proved to be the final act of the game, despite late pressure from Salford.
