Home Form of Huge Importance to Hull, says Davies
Curtis Davies says that Hull City cannot afford to drop anymore home points in order to avoid relegation this season. Davies watched Marcos Silva’s team suffer a 4-0 loss against Everton at Goodison Park.
This was the 11th loss suffered by the team in the 12 away matches. This dismal away record means that the team has to take as much points as possible in the home matches. Silva was recently brought in as the latest man to lead the club. Even though performances immediately improved upon his arrival, recent results have shown an alarming dip in form.
Teams like Sunderland and Leicester taking points in the last few weeks has resulted in the team making a rapid drop in the league table. Hull have managed just one win in the last five league matches. However, there is a huge contrast in terms of home form.
In games at the KC stadium, Hull have managed four wins and a draw in the last five games of all competitions. The last home defeat for the team in the league was on Boxing day in the game against Manchester City. As a result, Davies feels that home form has to remain this way in order to avoid relegation at all costs.
Hull take on Middlesbrough and West Ham in the first two games after the international break. “We have to get points away. It is not like our home form has been like that of Burnley (who have claimed 29 points at Turf Moor but only three on the road).We haven’t got the best home league record. It is half decent but we have to do more away from home. We have to pick up points, here and there.There are a lot of games coming where we think we can get something but the sooner we do that the better,” said Davies.
