Tyler Morton may have just four games left in the Black and Amber of Hull City before his loan expires and he returns to Liverpool, but he's determined to make the most of those occasions.

Morton has been a mainstay of Liam Rosenior's side this season and says he's loved every minute of being at the East Yorkshire club as he looks to finish with one last hoorah, and says he's loved every minute of it.

City head to Watford this afternoon knowing they have to win to keep alive their faint hopes of securing a top six finish, and hope Norwich and West Brom slip up in their respective games. Rosenior's side will arrive at Vicarage Road in good heart having won two of their last three and on the road, have won 10 games away from the MKM Stadium.

That must become 11 and then 12 on Wednesday night when they play their crucial game in hand on the Baggies and Canaries at Coventry City. For now, though, Morton says momentum is building at just the right time.

"I think it's gone so quick for me as well, and I feel like I joined this club not so long ago," Morton told Hull Live on the eve of the trip south. "It's been a really good ride for me, I've loved every minute, I'm still loving it, and I can't wait to play and put the shirt on again.

"I'm as positive as it gets. I see it going really well for us. I think the performance that we've put in lately and the work ethic from not only the starting 11 but the subs coming off the bench, you can see it's a real team and it's really come together.

"It's come together at the right time, and I feel like this push now that we've got all the confidence to go and win all of the games if our mentality is right, we do things right and we really, really push on especially these away games, they're going to be tough and it's going to be a tough ride. I've got every bit of confidence, every ounce of confidence in this team."

Momentum at any time of the season is vital and following their fine display at Leeds on Easter Monday, albeit in defeat, City have won two and drawn one in their last three, scoring eight goals in the process, and Morton believes it's at their backs.

"Definitely, it's the perfect time," the England Under-21 midfielder explained. "We need the momentum, especially right now. We've got a massive push and we know where we want to be. We're going to do everything in our power to get there, not only for ourselves but for the fans who have backed us the whole way back.

"They've backed me especially, we're very grateful for the support we've got through (the season) and now we've got to really show them what they mean to us and give them everything we've got and I know this team will.

"Nothing's easy in the Championship, nothing makes it anything easier. I think, personally, every game is tough no matter who you're playing against home or away. You've got to respect the opponents you're up against but we've got a lot of quality.

"Every game I'm going in confident, no matter who we play home or away and you've seen the results of this season what we've done to what everyone calls the bigger teams. We've played some teams off the park and we've really dominated in situations, so I go into every game confident. We never think anything's easy or we never go into a game thinking it's easy, we just focus on our performance and see how good we can be as a team.

"On our day we can beat anyone, especially in this division. We've got so much confidence in each other, and we're really gelling as a team, everyone's really coming together.

"You can feel the vibe around the training ground, it's as good as it's ever been in my opinion in the time I've been here, it's at its best. We've got a lot of confidence in one another to go out and dominate any team. Watford are next so we're going to look to dominate, play our way and really impose ourselves on them.

"We've put ourselves in this position exactly where we are right now. We've put one hundred per cent effort in every game. I've never seen the team go down, I've always seen us come back fighting. No matter who we played no matter when we've been beaten, I think we've always come back fighting.

"That's the spirit of this squad, not even just this squad, this club as a whole. It's a real fighting club, it's a real work hard club and I love that about this club. I love the fact that everyone works for each other, no matter if you're a fan, player or staff, everyone works for everyone. We've got a real fight and desire about us. We've put ourselves in this situation, so we're going to do everything to put it right and get where we want to be."
