Going In Where It Hurts


10:59 8th October 2013

Curtis Davies says he’s happy to keep putting his head in where it hurts to help Hull City’s Barclays Premier League cause.

Not for the first time this season, the weekend saw Davies leave the field with blood pouring from a nasty head wound before returning to the pitch to see the job through in a draw with Aston Villa.

And Davies, who was named Man of the Match against Villa and has also recently taken over the captain’s armband in the absence of Robert Koren, says the cuts, blood and stitches should all be part of what being a centre back is all about.

“It’s becoming a running theme,” said Davies.

“The rest of the lads are calling me LeBron James because I keep having to wear the headbands!

“But it’s just one of those things and you have to put your head on the line as a centre half. It’s all part of the trade.”

Davies has been in impressive form since joining the Tigers in the summer and has been a key figure in a side that is now unbeaten in the last four Premier League games and in eighth place in the table going into the second international break of the season.

“An unbeaten run like that is important for a team like ours,” added Davies.

“If you can pick up a point per game, that is usually enough to keep you up. We’re ahead of that at the moment and hopefully we can continue with that, although we’ve got two tough away games coming up straight after the international break.”
