Davies: We Must Turn Form Around


07:52 30th January 2014

Curtis Davies says Hull City must turn their current poor run of form around quickly if they are to avoid slipping further down the Barclays Premier League table.

Tuesday night’s defeat at Crystal Palace leaves the Tigers without a point, or even a league goal, since the turn of the year and Davies feels his side need to use the worry of a fall down the table as motivation to inspire better results.

“I think we need to be concerned because this has gone on too long now,” said Davies.

“We beat Fulham 6-0 (last month) and have done nothing since. Those 6-0s are all very well, but I would have happily taken a couple of 1-0s along the way to be further out of sight.

“We need to get it right and our next game is against Tottenham. That is the only place to put it right – the next game.

“We’re going to have to work at a game plan to stop their flowing, attacking football and look at how we can score a few goals because if we’re not scoring goals, we have nothing to hang on to.”

Davies does, however, believe that the Tigers aren’t far away from turning their lack of goals around with new front pair Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long showing signs of promise.

“They both worked hard on Tuesday night,” said Davies.

“It was the first time we’ve played a proper 3-5-2 with a front two. When you’ve got two new strikers trying to get used to each other it will take a bit of time.

“But if we can get those two working well together, we’ll have the goals in us to keep us in this league.”
