Davies: Things Will Change

2 February 2014

Striker Backs Seasiders To Turn Things Around

Steven Davies says things will start to change 'sooner or later' for Blackpool, with the striker determined to help the club through a bad patch.

Defeat to Blackburn Rovers yesterday left the team without a win in 12 league games, yet you won't find the 26-year-old shirking the challenge ahead.

"We're on this sort of run where nothing's dropping for us. The only thing we can do is stick together and keep working hard. We're giving everything. Sooner or later it's got to change for us and something will fall and we'll end up taking the game," he said.

"No one ever gives you anything, everything you've got you've got to work for. I'm certainly not going to jack it in and I'm going to work as hard as I can to turn it around."

The goals conceded at Ewood Park were disappointing from a squad point of view, with the players finding themselves in a tough position when chasing a game.

"The first goal is bad defending all round and no one should be able to just run right through the middle of us," Davies admitted. "The second goal sort of knocked the stuffing out of us, I know we didn't create too many chances but we were well and truly on top."

The game against Blackburn Rovers saw Davies start for the fourth match in a row, as he looks to reach his best form in a tangerine shirt.

"I've said from the minute I came in here that I need to play games. The only way you see the best of me is if you give me a run of games. I feel a lot stronger and fitter."

He'll now look to retain his place in the side for the visit of Nottingham Forest next Saturday, with the opposition holding no fear for The Seasiders' number nine.

"We went to Forest early on in the season and we beat them 1-0 so there's no reason for us to be scared. We're on an horrific run and I can never say I've been on this sort of run at any club I've been in.

"But I wouldn't want to be playing in any other team. I'm playing with all my mates and we're going to give it everything to get out of this run."
