Hull chairman Paul Duffen claims the Tigers must beat Bolton on Saturday after falling into the bottom three of the Barclays Premier League.
Duffen saw his club make a superb start to the season but their form has faded and Newcastle's victory over Middlesbrough saw the East Yorkshire side slip into the relegation zone.
"Certainly a win on Saturday is imperative," Duffen told Sky Sports News.
"Bolton have proved they're a really robust side this season.
"If we (beat Bolton) then of course we'll have an eye on results elsewhere.
"There are clubs that may not yet be in the mix who could come into the mix over these last two games."
