Hull's Silva not distracted by club switch rumours

The Wearsiders are already relegated, but tomorrow's clash at the KCOM Stadium is a massive game for Hull as they look to stay clear of Swansea in the race to beat the drop.

Such is the precariousness of both Hull and Swansea's predicaments with just three games remaining and two points separating them, neither can afford to at least not match the other's result.

"I understand the question, but the first thing we need to do is prepare for the game and respect our opponent", he said.

"I hope nobody thinks that".

"It is not a risky game", said Silva, whose seven home games with the Tigers have yielded six victories and a draw against Burnley.

But with Slaven Bilic having just a season left of his three-year contract at West Ham United, the Hammers could make a move by sacking the Croat to bring in Silva, if reports are to be believed. We want to try to avoid that, but at the same time I'd take it rather than going down.

"We have prepared for this game the same as any other and the players have to think about this game like any other".

"We want to do our best and control what it is possible to control - the game, our opponents and our players".

"There will be some very serious situations and other things happening for other teams, so we have that responsibility to make sure we perform". Nobody coming to the game on Saturday should think this because it would be a big mistake.

City in fine form and seldom lose on home soil, and a Sunderland side whose relegation has been confirmed are likely to put up much of a fight to get a result. In his 15 league games in charge, Hull have played seven at home, winning six and drawing one. Hull are doing their best to not join them and their recent point at St Mary's could prove to be priceless come the end of the season as it helped maintain their two-point buffer over Swansea in 18th.

"The league table never lies and where you finish in the league table, you deserve to be".

"The commitment and attitude has been spot on in the last few games, but our quality in terms of finishing teams (off), taking chances, hasn't been there".
