Tigers have Silva to thanks

Hull goalscorer Andy Robertson says that today's victory was the result of the mother of all rollickings from manager Marco Silva.

Robertson, who scored the first of Hull's two second half goals as they turned around a half-time deficit to beat West Ham 2-1, hailed Silva for his intervention.

We were poor in the first half and the manager gave us a deserved rollicking at half time," he told Hull's website. "He changed things and we were much better in the second half with Grosicki and Markovic causing West Ham problems on the wings.

"My first Premier League goal has been a long time coming and it was good to see the ball hit the net," he added, "but Iím just glad that it was a goal that got us back into the game before the big man at the back popped up with a winner.

"Our home form has been good since the manager came in and we need to keep it that way. "

Today's victory extended Hull's unbeaten home record to eight games - a period during which they have also beaten Manchester United and Liverpool at the KCOM Stadium.
