INTERVIEW: Tom Davies Looks Ahead To Exeter City Clash

The Sky Blues get set to return to League action...

12 January 2018

This weekend the Sky Blues travel down South as they return to Sky Bet League Two action, when they come up Exeter City at St James Park.

Following a break from the League due to the FA Cup Third Round tie with Stoke City, Mark Robins side travel for their first away game of the New Year this weekend.

Currently sitting in the automatic places and coming into the game on the back of three straight wins in all competitions, City will be looking to push on during the second half of the campaign.

One man who is enjoying his time in the side at the moment is defender Tom Davies as he continues to impress in the back four at the moment and he is delighted to have put a run of starts together.

He said: “It’s obviously something that I’ve wanted to do since I’ve come in and as I said before, the lads were doing really well and I had to bide my time.

“I spoke to the gaffer a couple of times and I understood the situation. I sort of didn’t expect to play because we’d been playing so well, but you’ve got to grasp that opportunity when it comes and it has done now; fingers crossed I can stay in.

“Like I say, I’ve got the shirt at the moment and fingers crossed that I can keep performing and keep my place in the team.”

Talking of the return to fitness of Rod McDonald: “You’re going to get competition at a club like this.

“You see all over the pitch, we’ve got probably two teams that we could put out and they’d do well in this league.

“That’s keeping all of us on our toes. I had to be ready when I came in and I’m sure he’ll be chomping at the bit to get his shirt back.”

Tom will look to continue his run in the side against Exeter City this weekend and he is expecting a tough game against the Grecians, on what isn’t the best of pitches.

“It’s a strange one really because I think they’ve changed the way they play a bit.

“We’ve looked at them and we’re going to look at them again. It’s a tough game; it’s a long way to go, but if we play how we can play, we can beat anyone in this league so we’ve got to fancy ourselves again.

“I prefer it (Playing on a muddy pitch) because I just head it and kick it anyway so it doesn’t really bother me. Your ball-playing players, it affects them a bit.

“At three o’clock on Saturday, you have to take it out of your mind and just play with the conditions. If we’re confident and we go into it with a good attitude, we’re going to come away with a good result.”
