The appointment of new boss Brian Noble failed to inspire Salford to victory as they lost 24-18 to Hull, a third win in a row which takes the Black and Whites into the top eight.
Hull ran in four tries, including a Richard Whiting double, to leave the Reds next-to-bottom of the Super League table.
The Reds made a flying start after Jay Pitts was sin-binned for obstruction with Theo Fages long pass allowing Martin Gleeson to put Danny Williams over in the corner after only four minutes and Mark Sneyd booted the touchline conversion.
Salford suffered a blow midway through the first half when Adam Neal made way with an arm injury and Hull immediately drew level.
Ben Crooks hacked the ball forward after a pass from Joe Arundel and won the race to the line for Joe Westerman to convert.
Hull went ahead almost straight from the restart with Richard Horne putting Whiting over to make it 12-6.
Young Niall Evalds was impressive at full-back for Salford, comfortably dealing with a barrage of high kicks.
Peter Gentle's men increased their advantage early in the second half with Tom Lineham pouncing onto Whiting's kick and Westerman landing the touchline conversion.
A storming break by Fages gave Salford a lift before Gareth Owen nipped over to cut the gap to 18-12 after 57 minutes.
But Hull could breathe more comfortably when Whiting charged down Sneyd's clearance kick for his second try.
Whiting hobbled off nine minutes from time but had already sealed the Reds' fate. Hull also had Arundel helped off in the 77th minute to take some of the gloss of a hard-earned victory with Jodie Broughton racing the full length of the field for a last-gasp try.
