Hull need points on the road to survive, says Silva

Hull are 17th in the Premier League, a place and two-points above the Swans with six games still to play.

HULL CITY'S desperate away form continued on an afternoon when respite did, at least, come via relegation rivals Swansea City also losing. At this level we need to start strong and play 90 minutes, not 80 minutes.

"We've been playing some good football at some points when playing against big teams and now we need to beat the direct teams, like Stoke, and hopefully get away with it".

Hull's revival coupled with Stoke's collapse had left the sides six points apart at the start of this game.

There was an uneasy tension at the bet365 Stadium as a result - with fans booing after Hull's goal and Saido Berahino's substitution - but that was eventually banished when substitute Peter Crouch and Xherdan Shaqiri scored second-half goals.

The final nail in the coffin came ten minutes from time when Xherdan Shaqiri hit a fantastic effort from 30 yards that fired past Jakupovic.

In the 10th minute Arnautovic could have completed his brace but he blazed over the bar from Shaqiri's pass once again.

Hull pushed for an equaliser as Oumar Niasse missed a couple of gilt-edged chances and the strugglers were made to pay when Shaqiri, who has only recently recovered from injury, sealed the points with a sensational 25-yard strike. Although cut open a few times at the back Hull kept coming forward and showed some stylish passing of their own.

Apprehension is something Potters boss Mark Hughes hopes he will not have to deal with now they are 11 points clear of trouble.

Hull: Jakupovic 6, Robertson 7, Maguire 7, Huddlestone 7, N'Diaye 6, Ranocchia 6, Clucas 6, Grosicki 6, Dawson 6, Niasse 5, Markovic 6.

Mexico says fugitive ex-Gov. Duarte detained in Guatemala
Under Mr Duarte, Veracruz also became the most unsafe region of the country for journalists, with 17 killed during his term. A news conference at the Mexican embassy later on Sunday was expected to clarify the extradition process Duarte faces.

Stoke City failed to clear the ball, and Maguire capitalised to find the back of the net.

The Swiss' confidence was contagious as Ryan Shawcross dinked through for Berahino to finish, though what would have been his first Stoke goal, 413 days on from his last for West Brom, was correctly ruled out for offside.

On came the tried and tested pairing - and they nearly made an instant impact, with Walters' diving header needing a brilliant one-handed stop from Eldin Jakupovic and Crouch bundling the rebound wide.

- The Potters have scored 59% of their league goals in the first half this season, the highest proportion of any Premier League side.
