Stoke, meanwhile, have now lost five of their last six games, and Hughes acknowledged that his team were not up to par in south Wales.

"I believed we wanted three wins and a draw".

Hull manager Marco Silva thinks his players are handling the pressure well as the fight to remain in the Premier League reaches its crucial stage, but admits Watford "can play free football" against them tomorrow.

"Yes, we are two points behind Hull and they are in the driving seat. I know him well and would be more than happy to speak to him".

As a group of players we can honestly say that they will not want it more than us on the day. Whether that is good for them we will see, but all we know is that we can expect a tough game.

Fernando Llorente headed in Gylfi Sigurdsson's cross after just 10 minutes and Swansea got the stroke of luck they needed 20 minutes from time when Marko Arnautovic blazed over a penalty. In the event the difference had gone to five points with four to play the job could happen to be quite hard. "In the event that you are away you 've got to be sure to are in the match and don't surrender early which is really what we did", Hughes told BBC Sport.

The former Maury County teacher accused of kidnapping a 15-year-old student last month has been arrested in northern California . He agreed to help them after Cummins told him they had lost everything in a fire in Colorado and needed a place to stay.

"But we've got to deal with this one against Stoke because if we don't, then we might not have a World Cup final in the next game".

Stoke were handed a reprieve in the 70th minute when Federico Fernandez clumsily brought down Xherdan Shaqiri in the box, prompting referee Michael Oliver to award a penalty.

Stoke battled their way back into the match and should have levelled later in the first-half but Saido Berahino, struggling for form since his move from West Brom in the January transfer window, put his header wastefully wide. "It needs to go in from our point of view because the apprehension in the stadium would have risen and we would have benefited from that".

"But we missed, and they go down the other end and score from a deflected shot".

"You see odd results every week and you know you can't rely on other teams picking up or dropping points, it has to be about what we do".

"We got a little chance".
