Hull boss Silva ready to seize chance to jump out of drop zone with win over Boro

Date Posted,April 4, 2017

Hull boss Marco Silva could lift his team out of the Premier League relegation zone tonight.

If Tigers beat drop rivals Middlesbrough and Swansea fail to win against Spurs, the Portuguese coach will be on course to turn around what appeared to be a lost cause when he took over in January.

But he warned his side they must maintain their momentum following their impressive win over West Ham at the weekend.

The former Estoril, Sporting Lisbon and Olympiakos boss has not lost a home game for over three years and said: “It was really important win on Saturday, and now we have to back that up.

“It is another chance for us to take points. We have prepared for this game as we have any other.

“We have a game against one of our direct opponents and we have be at 100 per cent to win this game.

“The system we play is not the most important thing. Our intensity and performance is the most important factor.

“It is important we continue our recent home form and we will do our best to try and win the game.

“I expect Middlesbrough to come here to fight and compete. They are in a similar position to us in the table.

“They had a good performance against Manchester United and achieved a positive result against Swansea last time out.”

Middlesbrough trail Hull, by a place and four points and wide man Ahmed Elmohamady said: “Our home form has been fantastic under Marco Silva and it will be key to us staying up.”

“Everyone wants to be out of the bottom three and we all know the importance of tomorrow night’s game.”

“The lads have been terrific in the dressing room. Hopefully we can keep our run going and stay in the Premier League.”
