Southend registered their first league victory of the season, as they got the better of Peterborough United 2-1 at home.
Adam Barrett put the Shrimpers in the lead at Roots Hall just past the half-hour mark when he found the target from close range.
Former Leeds man Hunt made it 2-0 to Southend on 70 minutes when he headed home Ben Coker's free kick.
Marcus Maddison pulled one back for Peterborough late on, but it was too little too late for the visitors.
Hunt was overjoyed to have scored for Southend and help them to victory, making the following posts on Twitter:

Hunt may be playing in League One at the moment, but he is still keeping a close eye on the happenings in the Championship.
Leeds are 10th in the Championship at the moment with seven points from five matches.
