But not last night.
Middlesbrough welcome Burnley to the Riverside on Saturday.
"Of course, everyone wants to be out of the bottom three, especially (on Wednesday) it's a big game for us", Elmohamady added.
"It's clear to me we deserved this victory".
Goals, free-flowing football, stunning saves and a huge dollop of controversy meant the 20,380 crowd were treated to an all-White Rose affair that few will forget in a hurry.
Boro were stunned and needed some invention to get back in the game and Rudy Gestede almost provided that but he saw his header tipped onto the crossbar by keeper Eldin Jakupovic.
Marco Silva praised his Hull City side's character after their 4-2 thumping of Middlesborough, securing a vital win that pulled them out of the relegation zone, as reports the Hull Daily Mail.
The Tigers are chasing a fifth home win in six under head coach Marco Silva and if the Portuguese can extend his unbeaten home league run as manager to 40 matches, his side's momentum could prove decisive in their fight for survival.
Detroit Pistons blow 20-point lead, lose to Toronto Raptors, 105-102
After going up, 48-28, in the second quarter, the Pistons allowed the Raptors to close on an 18-8 run to cut the lead in half. Kyle Lowry has returned from wrist surgery after missing 21 games, and he didn't wait around to lift the Toronto Raptors.
Defeat for Boro, without a league win since December 17, has left them seven points adrift of safety with eight games left to play.
The fun and games started nearly straight away, Oumar Niasse putting the ball in the visitors' net inside three minutes only to be rightly ruled offside.
Adama Traore's low angled cross from the right side of the penalty area was turned home at the far by the unmarked Negredo. They scored the first time they attacked but we responded very well.
That suited the Tigers and a fourth goal came on 69 minutes.
Hernandez followed that nuisance value by creating Hull's second, the Uruguayan capitalising on Ben Gibson mis-reading the flight of the ball before passing to Niasse, who fired in from 12 yards. With nothing to lose the Teessiders pushed men forward and they were soon creating further chances.
It was proper end-to-end stuff and Middlesbrough were nearly back within a goal when Rudy Gestede got up high to meet a deep cross and saw his header tipped onto the crossbar by Jakupovic.
Boro reduced the deficit in first-half stoppage time in controversial circumstances. The great escape really might be on after all in the East Riding. Subs: Evandro (for Hernandez, 51) 6, Michael Dawson (for Maguire, 81) 6, Markus Henriksen (for Grosicki, 88) 6.
Middlesbrough: Valdes; Barragan, Ayala, Gibson, Husband (Guedioura 58); Traore, Clayton, de Roon, Downing; Negredo (Bamford 71), Gestede (Stuani 80).
