Davies Hails Tigers' Togetherness

Curtis Davies has hailed the Tigers’ spirit and togetherness as one of the reasons behind a positive opening half to the season.

Ahead of the visit of Chelsea to the KC Stadium on Saturday, the Tigers occupy tenth place in the Premier League table and have certainly come a long way since a 2-0 defeat to the Blues on the first weekend of the campaign.

“As a group I think we’ve clicked,” said Davies.

“We all work hard together and work hard for each other. But at the same time, we also have that quality to help us get over the line.

“The fact that we all get on well does help and we’re all willing to dig in for each other. The squad that the manager has put together is a very good one and the fact that we’ve gelled together well is helping to move us on to get results.”

Although Davies has openly labelled games against the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal as ‘bonus balls’ this season, the Tigers can take confidence from previous displays against the big teams.

Liverpool were turned over at the KC Stadium last month while reigning Champions Manchester United were run close on Boxing Day and that is whetting the appetite for the visit of Jose Mourinho’s side at the weekend.

“You look at our recent home game against Manchester United,” added Davies. 

“The way we started that game and really went for it is the same attitude we should show against Chelsea. But, if we’re able to get a goal or two, hopefully we’ll be able to hold onto it for a bit longer that we did against Manchester United.

“I always look forward to these games, like I do any game in the Premier League.”
