West Bromwich Albion manager Pepe Mel admits that it will be "very difficult" for his team to get a result against Hull City this weekend.

Pepe Mel has said that Hull City will make it "very difficult" for his West Bromwich Albion side to take a win this weekend.

The Baggies currently sit 16th in the Premier League table, just three points clear of the relegation zone, ahead of their game against Hull at the KC Stadium tomorrow afternoon.

The manager told the club's website: "Hull City and West Brom both need to win. It's a big match and very, very difficult for us. I think their season has been very, very good, they play well. They have a clear way to win.

"Now Jonas Olsson is suspended, in my head is another way to win the next match. It is important for us now that the players know two different ways to play and win.

"I played against Hull in pre-season with Betis. They have a good stadium, good fans and a good club. Hull won but it's no problem. You remember in the last press conference I told you Betis played Swansea, you think who won? Swansea. And then, no problem last Saturday!"

Hull have won just once in their last four matches.
