Youngster wants Tigers to roar away from home...

Hull City striker Jozy Altidore hopes that his goal in the recent 2-1 victory over Manchester City was the first of many for the Tigers.

The American youngster maintained he was happy with the victory, but hoped to score more to help the club pull further away from the relegation zone.

"It was great to score, but the most important part was getting a win against what a lot of people consider to be a powerful team," Altidore told the club's official website.

"Hopefully there will be more goals to come for me, but this isn't a personal thing here at Hull. It's a team effort to stay in the Premier League and it's more important that the team do well than anything else."

Having ended a lacklustre run of going ten games without a victory, the former New York Red Bulls player hopes his side can turn the tide and get their first away victory of the season.

"It's been a good week and hopefully we can keep this form going," he said.

"We're a tough team to play against at the KC Stadium and we always make it hard for the opposition.

"I don't think there were too many nerves when they got a goal back. We've been in that position quite a bit now and we're growing as a team. We're learning what it takes to close out games.

"We showed that on Saturday and we did well.

"The challenge now is to get some results away from home. We're all up for that challenge and we want to keep improving with each game."
