George Boyd scored twice on his home debut as Hull moved into second place in the npower Championship following an impressive 5-2 win over Birmingham.
Boyd, who was making his first start for the Tigers since joining on loan from Peterborough, opened his Hull account inside the first minute.
The impressive Robbie Brady's defence-splitting pass found the forward who rounded Jack Butland before slotting the ball into the net.
Gedo put the home side two up, making the most of a communication breakdown between Steven Caldwell and Butland to fire home his fourth goal, before Boyd scored again to put them in control.
He pounced on a loose ball 10 yards out before shooting off-balance past Butland, who would have been disappointed not to have got more on what was a tame effort.
Robert Koren added a fourth from 20 yards five minutes into the second half before Gedo once again found the target when he was picked out by Ahmed Elmohamady's wonderfully whipped cross.
Peter Lovenkrands and Chris Burke scored late consolations for Birmingham.
Lovenkrands netted from long distance before Burke found the corner from inside the area.
