Dawson tigerish on survival hopes

Hull defender Andy Dawson is confident his team-mates can rouse themselves for one last push to maintain their top-flight status. The Tigers' nosedive towards relegation continued on Saturday as they were undone 2-1 by Stoke, who guaranteed their own safety in the process, at the KC Stadium. Depending on the outcome of Monday night's clash between Newcastle and Middlesbrough, Hull could now find themselves in the bottom three of the Barclays Premier League by the time they play at Bolton next Saturday. Dawson, who scored his side's consolation against the Potters in injury-time, said: "As a professional footballer you've got to pick yourself up and on Monday morning we'll be ready to go again. "We've still got two games to go, it's six points. We've got to get as many points as we can and hope it's good enough. We've got to go to Bolton and hopefully get three points and that's all we can concentrate on. "We have enjoyed playing in the best league in the world all season and in the last two games we are going to give everything we can. We`ve got to go out and perform and if we do that to the best of our ability and it`s not good enough, fair enough, but I`m sure if we do do it to the best of our ability it will be good enough."
