international and right back spoke about his club’s current struggle as they aim to avoid relegation and stay in the .

Hull City is currently in the 17th place with 30 points, two points above the bottom three with six games left. The club recently lost to Manchester City 3-1 in the 32nd fixture. At the bottom of the table, both Swansea City and Middlesbrough are on Hull’s tail with 28 and 24 points.

“There’s always pressure in football, wherever you are playing in the table,” the Egyptian Pharaoh told British media. “There’s always pressure but you have to keep confidence. That’s the big role that the manager is playing. You have to play with confidence and play without fear. The confidence is key and plays a big role in the games coming up.”

Elmohamady also spoke about the importance of KCOM stadium to him and his teammates as playing there helped them win four of their last five league games. He thinks they should use this wisely to help them survive in the league.

“People now are coming to Hull knowing it’s going to be difficult for them. We have to keep it up. It’s our key to staying up, winning our home games,” he added. “Hopefully now until the end of the season we can win all of our home games but also pick up points away too.”

The Tigers will be clashing with Ramadan Sobhi’s Stoke City in the next round on April 15.
