Andrew Robertson: 'Win over Leicester City would be massive'

Hull City defender Andrew Robertson feels that beating Leicester City would provide his side with a massive lift in their fight against relegation.

Hull City defender Andrew Robertson believes that a victory over Leicester City would be a huge step in paving his side's way to safety in the Premier League.

The Tigers are five points clear of the bottom three with 10 games left in the campaign, and Robertson feels that taking three points from a relegation rival would alleviate the pressure on the club by pulling them further away from the drop zone.

Robertson told the club's official website: "It's an important game. We're playing a team below us in the table so we'll be going into it trying to get a win. It's a massive game and hopefully we'll be coming away with the three points.

"We're not putting any added pressure on ourselves. We played well in our last game and on another day we could have won it by three or four. Every game is massive in the run-in and we're looking forward to getting back out on the pitch after a short break.

"I'm sure Leicester will be fired up for it, but we will be too. We're all in a relegation battle and there's probably seven teams fighting for their safety. We want to make ourselves safe as quickly as we can."

Hull are 15th in the Premier League ahead of their clash against the Foxes.
