Hull City boss Leonid Slutsky has said it would be "normal" for the club to sack him after their poor run of form.

The Tigers blew a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 at home to Bristol City on Saturday and are now without a win in six.

Slutsky told BBC Radio Humberside: "If we had a level for frustration, it is the maximum level right now.

"I don't know (what will happen). Now it's really a very painful time for me and I can't talk about the future and my job."

He added: "It is a normal situation, we haven't won in our last six matches. It is a normal to change coach in this situation, but it will be his (owner Assem Allam's) decision."

Slutsky, who replaced Marco Silva in June, has previously said that he would "accept" being sacked.

The Tigers were relegated from the Premier League last season and are just four points above the Championship relegation zone.

Should the 46-year-old Russian lose his job it would leave Hull looking for a fourth manager in 18 months since Steve Bruce resigned in July 2016.

They travel to Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
