Marco Silva challenges Hull to take points from remaining away fixtures

Marco Silva challenges Hull to take points from remaining away fixtures

The same player could have doubled Stoke's lead three minutes later from another Shaqiri invitation, this time reading the chipped pass well but sending a right foot volley over the bar from close range.

The former Bayern Munich attacking midfielder made it 3-1 using a rasping, swerving attempt from 30 yards to send Stoke 11 points clear of the relegation zone.

Markovic was to the fore again when he was denied an equaliser by a fine save from Grant after latching onto a magnificent diagonal ball from Maguire. They got off to the worst possible start after Marko Arnautovic game the home side the lead with a stunning finish.

Hull have earned just one point in six away games under Silva - at Manchester United in February - and the Portuguese said the trip to Stoke would offer a good opportunity to pick up a few more.

Grosicki passed up a shooting chance when opting to try and square the ball for Niasse, who was booked just before the interval for a challenge on goalkeeper Grant.

The Tigers crashed to a 14th defeat in their last 15 assignments on the road despite Harry Maguire levelling early in the second half.

There was an uneasy tension at the bet365 Stadium as a result - with fans booing after Hull's goal and Saido Berahino's substitution - but that was eventually banished when substitute Peter Crouch and Xherdan Shaqiri scored second-half goals.

The two Stoke substitutes soon combined to put the home side back in front.

On came the tried and tested pairing - and they nearly made an instant impact, with Walters' diving header needing a brilliant one-handed stop from Eldin Jakupovic and Crouch bundling the rebound wide. Hull: Eldin Jakupovic 6, Harry Maguire 7, Michael Dawson 6, Andrea Ranocchia 5, Andrew Robertson 6, Lazar Markovic 6, Alfred N'Diaye 6, Tom Huddlestone 6, Sam Clucas 6, Kamil Grosicki 7, Oumar Niasse 6.

'We prepared in the same way - away and at home - and I need to find this solution. "The confidence is key and plays a big role in the games coming up".

But the Switzerland worldwide teed up Marko Arnautovic for Stoke's opener in Saturday's contest and, after Peter Crouch had restored the hosts' lead following Harry Maguire's leveller, it was Shaqiri who put the game to bed in stunning fashion.

Swiss global Xherdan Shaqiri was making just his 16th league start of the season on Saturday, as his Stoke side welcomed struggling Hull to the bet365 Stadium.
