Hull 4-2 Middlesbrough: Tigers claim important win

Clyde Nash

When Silva took over at Hull in January, the club were deep in a relegation battle having picked up just 13 points all season - good for only bottom of the league.

Not that it should come as much of a surprise as, following Wednesday night's 4-2 win over Middlesbrough, Silva is now proud custodian of a 40-match unbeaten home streak that stretches back to his last few months in charge of Estoril Praia.

"The players on the bench who come on are really fighting for their shirt and that's brilliant at this time of the season".

"It is about hitting form at the right time and with seven games to go that is something we have done", he said, speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

Hernandez set up Senegalese worldwide Oumar Niasse before scoring himself with Serbian global Lazar Markovic also getting on the scoresheet and Harry Maguire adding a fourth in the second-half.

Boro's attacking intent was rewarded in first-half stoppage-time, albeit in hugely controversial circumstances due to Marten De Roon heading in from a clearly offside position.

"It's massive", added Clucas, whose enterprise in midfield has helped ease the loss of Tom Huddlestone, who sat out the second game of a three-match ban. "We have to give them something back, and there's no better place to do that than the Riverside on Saturday".

Silva retained the side which finished the game on Saturday keeping two wingers and two strikers up front.

Centre-half Ben Gibson accepted his share of the blame, but said the fight for survival was far from over.

"We're used to being solid, and we weren't", he told the club's official website. But ultimately, we didn't do our jobs defensively and without the ball, and we have to resolve that quickly.

To the backdrop of a crackling atmosphere, Hull City and Middlesbrough served up a breathless contest that was both exhilarating and exhausting for all inside the KCOM Stadium.

"The teams all around us are going to be playing each other, so I'm thinking maybe 38 or 39 points is what we need". Their total of 23 points is five behind that of Swansea City in 18th and eight points from safety.

Gael Clichy backs under-fire Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger
About 1,000 Arsenal fans joined an anti-Wenger march before the game, the biggest such protests against the Frenchman. If we show the same spirit we showed against City [in Sunday's 2-2 draw], we will win football games.

Hull suffered a blow when Hernandez was forced off and replaced by Evandro, but they continued to cause Boro problems and Maguire gave the visitors a mountain to climb 20 minutes from time.
