INTERVIEW: "It Will Be Tough But Hopefully We Can Go Again"

Davies looking for back to back wins tomorrow afternoon...

18 April 2019

Sky Blues defender Tom Davies, who turns 27 today, is looking forward to coming up against a ‘tough’ Bradford side on Good Friday.

The centre-back returned to the starting eleven against Bristol Rovers and has featured in the last two games for the Sky Blues.

The Bantams head to the Ricoh for tomorrow afternoon, knowing that they could be relegated if they don’t get a result against Mark Robins’ side.

Davies admitted that games against sides in the bottom half of the table have been ones in which the Sky Blues have sometimes failed to come away with three points, but is hoping they can pick up where they left off against Sunderland and change that against Bradford.

He said: “It seems to be our Achilles heel for the past two years, but we go into tomorrow not underestimating Bradford at all.

“We know they are a good outfit and they will be fighting for anything they can get, so it will be tough, but hopefully we can go again and get the three points.

“We need to make sure we keep it solid at home, we know we have the players at the top end of the pitch that can do the business as we saw on Saturday.

“It is down to us at the back to keep Bradford out and then we just let the guys at the top do what they do best.”

Davies, who has made 22 appearances this season is three away from making his 50th appearance in a Sky Blue shirt.

The defender has suffered with a few injuries this season, which have hampered his run in the starting eleven at times.

However, Tom is enjoying being back in the heart of defence and wants to take his opportunity to remain there for the remainder of the season.

“I have had to wait patiently as the lads that have been in the team have done well, so, when you get the opportunity you have to take it and that has been the case for a while, and I want to try and keep the shirt.

“Last time I got in the team I got an injury, so lost the place but you have to hold your hands up and say well done.

“It is frustrating being out of the team, but it is part of the game and as long as we get three points then that is the most important thing. “
