Hull City manager Steve Bruce admitted that there isn't much difference between Hull and Swansea City, as his side edged today's game 1-0 at the KC Stadium.
In a dull game that saw the Swans produce a poor performance, Boyd got the all important winning goal late in the first half as he headed home a cross from close range.
It was Hull's best method of attack, putting in good crosses into the box as the Swans looked less than confident in dealing with them.
The win for the Tigers means they are just 4 points away from reaching the 40-points target - the popular target that should guarantee a club's Premier League status.
Swansea City, however, are 7 points adrift of that target with just 5 games to go - starting with Chelsea at home next Sunday.
"This was a huge win for us and it gives us a little bit of breathing space again. However, as we`ve seen so often this year, some of the results have been incredible again and that is what happens at this stage of the season.
"There wasn`t a lot of difference between us and Swansea, but there is a fierce determination and I think that resilience and determination to hang on to something is what we did remarkably well.
"We`ve had to dig deep to get where we are and for a lot of the players this is their first year in the Premier League. What you can`t deny is the spirit amongst them - it`s terrific.
"We haven`t mathematically done it yet - could it be one of those horrible seasons when you need 40 points to stay up? Nobody is adrift and everybody has got a chance.
"It`s still all to play for, but we`ve made huge strides today because we`ve beaten another team that`s in and around us at home."
That 'fierce determination' and 'resilience' was so obviously missing from a flat Swansea City performance that lacked quality, energy and desire. It was simply disappointing, particularly after a confidence-boosting 3-0 win last Saturday against Norwich City.
