Davies says Hull must not underestimate Euro opponents

Hull City captain Curtis Davies says they must not underestimate their early Europa League opponents.

The Tigers will play their first ever European tie against either FKAS Trencin, of Slovakia, or Serbian side FK Vojvodina.

Defender Davies said: "I can't say any of the lads knew much about them but if you're in a European competition you must have done well in your own country, either by virtue of a league finish or a cup win.

"They must have done something right so we need to go there and take it seriously.

"I'd have thought they know who we are, simply because everyone in the world watches the Premier League, whereas I can't say too many of the lads will have watched the Slovakian League.

"I guess they might have watched the Cup final as well. I'm sure they'll know a bit more about us than we might expect."
