Cape Town - Hull City manager Marco Silva has reiterated the importance of his side focusing on their own games as they aim to stave off relegation this season.

The Tigers earned four points from their last two Premier League outings, beating Watford before a goalless draw at Southampton on Saturday.

The results sees Silva's men two points clear of Swansea City and the bottom three, with only three games left in the season, against Sunderland, Crystal Palace, and Tottenham.

"We need to deal with our performance and that's what's important for us," said Silva, according to the Daily Mail.

"The next game is the most important, against Sunderland. Always for us it is step by step, game by game. The next is always the most important. If you ask me about Swansea (and their run-in), I don't know. The most important thing for us is to put focus in our work and do our job.

"For me, the most important thing is what we do in our game and our performance and believe in our work. After we will see if our result, good or not, puts pressure on Swansea."

Eldin Jakupovic saved an injury-time penalty to help Hull inch closer to Premier League safety and condemned Sunderland to relegation by drawing 0-0 at Southampton on Saturday.

Southampton were given an opportunity to claim victory when Alfred N'Diaye was penalised for wrestling with Maya Yoshida, but Jakupovic plunged to his left to parry Dusan Tadic's spot-kick.

Kick off is at 16:00.
