Former Boro Skipper Says Hull Deserve To Stay Up!

George Boateng: "I wouldn't expect Manchester to do us any favours.

"I know three days later they have a massive Champions League final, I hope their kitman will get a mention on their teamsheet - but, you never know, he might be a very good player.

"They won't want to risk any players getting injured but they have a duty. Other teams will complain if they don't field a strong team.

"Before the game people were very negative about Hull, we were already condemned.

"I think the way we have played through the whole season, we deserve to be in the Premier League.

"The belief in the team is back. With hard work we have realised we can still play good football.

"I am confident if we can get a point against Man United - I don't see Newcastle winning at Villa Park.

"Aston Villa will want to finish their season on a high and I would expect them to do their duty."
