Widnes recorded their first home win of the season with a 36-16 triumph over Hull FC - but victory may have come at a costly price for the Vikings.
Paddy Flynn bagged a brace of first-half tries before ex-Hull man Cameron Phelps crossed twice himself against his former employers after the break.
New boy Kevin Brown played his part in helping the hosts rally from a 12-10 half-time deficit, setting up a try on his long-awaited debut when his superb up-and-under was seized in the air by Chris Dean.
However, the stand-off's night came to a premature end when he hobbled off with an ankle injury. Widnes also saw Stefan Marsh suffer a suspected broken arm, meaning the result was somewhat soured by the loss of two key players.
Hull will feel little sympathy for their opponents, seeing as they have big-name recruits Daniel Holdsworth and Gareth Ellis currently stuck on the sidelines themselves.
They broke the deadlock after just two minutes through Joe Westerman and although Flynn's first try pegged them back, a high shot from Gareth Hock - one of a plethora of penalties given away by the forward during the evening - led to Ben Galea grabbing his first try for the Black and Whites.
Brett Seymour set up his fellow Australian with a short ball, though his next assist came when his long, floaty pass out wide was picked off by Flynn, who galloped clear to the other end of the field.
The Vikings then took the lead for the first time early in the second half when Phelps supported a rampaging run by Hock - it gave them an advantage they never looked like surrendering from then on.
Brown's boot assisted Dean's score soon afterwards and there was daylight between the teams when Phelps completed his double on the hour mark.
Tom Lineham's fine finish in the right corner briefly gave Hull renewed hope, but any chance the Airlie Birds had of soaring back into the contest were shot down by a Frank Winterstein try with 10 minutes to play.
Hock - making his first start since signing on loan from Wigan - completed an eventful night for both himself and his team by reaching out to get the seventh and final Widnes try shortly before the hooter sounded.
