Hull City coach Marco Silva admits his team’s next few fixtures are crucial to their chances of avoiding relegation, with Swansea first on the agenda.

The Tigers, 1.40 to be relegated, remained in the bottom three on Saturday night as they fell to a 3-1 defeat to Leicester at the King Power Stadium.

Silva’s men took the lead in the 14th minute when Sam Clucas scrambled home from close range but Christian Fuchs soon equalised for the home side.

Riyad Mahrez then put Leicester in front with a trademark strike before a Tom Huddlestone own goal handed Leicester all three points.

Hull remain 19th in the league table and are now four points from safety ahead of next week’s clash with relegation rivals Swansea City.

In the next few weeks they also face West Ham and Middlesbrough at home and Silva wants an immediate response against the Welsh outfit.

He told Sky Sports: “First of all we need to think about our next game. It’s against Swansea and we need to play like it’s a decisive game. All the games are decisive for us.

“We need to work hard during the week, prepare well and win the next game. It’s still very tight at the bottom.

It’s a very important game for us and we need to do our best and believe it’s always possible to change our situation.

“It’s our obligation to believe. Now is the moment to rest and analyse the game and on Monday work towards the next game.

At this level when you have the chances we had you need to score to get positive results. That’s where we need to
