Results all important – Elmohamady

Hull City

Ahmed Elmohamady says the result was all that mattered against Swansea and admits points at home for Hull at this stage are a must.

The Tigers will head into Saturday’s clash with Everton with renewed confidence having picked up a vital victory over relegation rivals Swansea last weekend.

The performance was not the best Hull have produced since Marco Silva took charge but Elmohamady says that is not important at this stage of the season, claiming it was massive that they got the win by any means necessary.

Having pulled to within one point of getting out of the relegation zone with the 2-1 win, the Egyptian is looking for more home success going forward, although not before picking up more points at Everton.

“The win over Swansea was a massive one for us,” Elmohamady told the Hull Daily Mail. “We badly needed it, because we were at home and they were a team we needed to pull back towards us. Before the game, we all knew what was at stake and how tough it was going to be. Swansea have been in great form and they have a new manager. They had some great results in the last month, too.

“So, we knew they would come here with big confidence. Our last away game at Leicester (losing 3-1) had not been good and the manager had prepared us very, very well for Swansea. Mentally, we were ready and the lads did the job. We had a great win. I know the performance was not too good but, at this stage of the season, we need results more than performances.

“We have to get ready for Everton away. That is another big game for us and we want another win.”
