Preview: Hull City v West Ham United

Hull City manager Marco Silva and West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic both believe they are not under pressure despite the poor league form of each team of late.

The two sides face one another in a Premier League clash at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday, with a victory for the Tigers imperative as they look to escape the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, West Ham will seek a victory as they look to end a winless streak that has extended to five matches. City boss Silva said: "We have done well at home of late and we want to win again. The secret to our home form is work – hard work."

Bilic added that he was not under any pressure from the club's management following their poor run: "I talk to the chairmen, not on a daily basis, but after every game. Then I talk about some issues during the week. I have a good relationship with both of them."

In team news, Tom Huddlestone is out for a Hull because of a three-match ban. Michael Dawson is available after recovering from injury.

Mark Noble is in the squad for the Hammers but Michail Antonio is not fit enough to travel. Pedro Obiang is ruled out while Winston Reid is another long term absentee.
