Kilmarnock continued their fine start to the Scottish Premier League season as they came from behind to stun Dundee United 2-1.
United looked set to claim their second consecutive win before they reduced to ten men late in the second half and Kilmarnock capitalised on their numerical advantage to turn the game on its head.
There were few chances in the first half, with United's Hunt going closest just before the break as he headed wide of Alan Combe's left-hand post.
The deadlock was broken in the 50th minute when Christian Kalvenes' cross from the right found its way through to Hunt and he was able to tap in from close range.
However, Kalvenes was sent off in the 77th minute and William Gibson equalised for the home side two minutes later.
Colin Nish then popped up with the winner three minutes from time.
After holding Celtic to a goalless draw away from home last week, Kilmarnock are now fifth in the table.
