Hull City defender Curtis Davies believes that Aston Villa are under huge pressure to get a result in their clash with the Tigers on Saturday.

Hull City defender Curtis Davies believes that Aston Villa are under pressure to get a result in their Premier League clash against the Tigers.

Villa are just three points off the relegation zone in 16th place with three games remaining this season.

Davies feels that the pressure of playing at home could count against Paul Lambert's side.

"You have to say their game against us is humongous," Davies told The Mirror. "They wouldn't like to come out of it having to face Tottenham and City to get a point to stay up.

"But if I was a Villa player at the moment, I would probably prefer to be playing away. I know what it is like at Villa Park when there is an expectancy."

Hull are 14th in the Premier League with 37 points from their 35 games.
