Brazilian forward Geovanni is certain Hull City will preserve their Premier League status this season.
Former Barcelona attacker Geovanni netted the opener in the Tigers' 1-1 draw with Newcastle United on Saturday.
Hull currently sit four points above the drop zone with nine games of the term remaining, and Geovanni believes they will be plying their trade in England's top flight next campaign.
"I am happy to be able to help Hull, and also happy to have scored again," said the 29-year-old.
"We went out to win this game. It did not happen. But from now on, the most important thing is not losing games at this stage of the competition. That will be important for us to stay in the Premier League.
"We could have been happier had we won this game. We got points in the last two games, and we must keep this mentality.
"I would like to get back to that phase of scoring more goals and helping the team.
"No doubt about it, we will stay in the Premier League. But we must keep up this form, and not lose games."
