Curtis Davies is disappointed that the team Derby County lost their lead following their 1-1 draw at Pride Park Stadium. The player admitted that they could not match the energy levels of Sheffield United, hence their inability to win the first game of the year 2018.

The Rams went ahead through Matej Vydra in the 24th minute but Leon Clarke drew level for The Blades before the half hour mark. The visitors fought hard throughout the encounter and deserved a share of the spoils.

Curtis Davies says anybody can lead the line at Derby County. David Nugent, Chris Martin and Sam Winnall have all started for the team in recent weeks as the manager found best. Martin started the new term before Nugent replaced him. He netted twice against Bolton but he has been replaced by loanee Winnall.

Winnall scored as Derby played a 1-1 draw with Birmingham City but against Cardiff, he struggled. Martin was called on but the game ended in a goalless draw. Coach Gary Rowett does not have a stable pick, rather he calls anyone that can get the job done. With the East Midlands derby match against Nottingham Forest, there is no known man to lead the pack.

Davies still believe in promotion


Derby County defender Curtis Davies believes that his team can challenge for promotion this season despite their poor start to the campaign.

Indeed Derby County has been beaten by Wolves and draw with Sunderland since the commencement of the season.

Curtis Davies believes that the season is still long and that there are plenty of matches for the team to recover their form. He said that there are some good players in the team and that they have the necessary skills and experience to mount a serious push for promotion.

Curtis Davies has already won promotion back in the past with Hull City and said that he is aware of the demand of this league. He said that it is not enough to be a good team, but you need to work harder than the opposition.

He said that the competition is always tough in the Championship and will demand a physical battle in every game. Read More



Following his arrival from Tottenham Hotspur on a three year contract, Hull City defender, Michael Dawson has been an inspiring figure for the Tigers in their fight for Premier League survival and in the English Football League Cup.

The 32-year-old only returned from a 12-week lay-off in City’s 2-0 loss to Stoke last week and has helped the Tigers secure a win in the EFL Cup quarter-finals away to Bristol city scoring the winning goal in the tie which ended 2-1.

City have been short on positives during a damaging run of seven defeats in eight Premier League games but Dawson’s return to the side has made a huge difference. The Tigers undoubtedly look stronger for his presence in a defence that had been so horribly compromised.

A recall to their match day 10 clash at Vicarage Road, Hull city had a defence that could not be breached for the most part of the encounter as the Tigers resolutely blocked and cleared every attack that came their way. Read More



Championship side Hull City are yet to sign new players as they prepare for life in the lower division.

The team had so much hope when they moved to the top tier last term but after a few months they started the fight against relegation. They were eventually sent back to the Championship alongside Middlesbrough and Sunderland.

With the slump, many things were expected. Curtis Davies shocked many when he left the club. He moved to Derby Country for around £500,000. Many did not anticipate his exit from the KCOM Stadium after four years of stay.

Just like in recent past where Jack Hobbs and Tom Ince shocked fans with their exit, Curtis did the same.

Till day, Hull are yet to sign players that would help them succeed in the Championship. Rather more players are almost sure to leave as well. Read More

Home Form of Huge Importance to Hull, says Davies


Curtis Davies says that Hull City cannot afford to drop anymore home points in order to avoid relegation this season. Davies watched Marcos Silva’s team suffer a 4-0 loss against Everton at Goodison Park.

This was the 11th loss suffered by the team in the 12 away matches. This dismal away record means that the team has to take as much points as possible in the home matches. Silva was recently brought in as the latest man to lead the club. Even though performances immediately improved upon his arrival, recent results have shown an alarming dip in form.

Teams like Sunderland and Leicester taking points in the last few weeks has resulted in the team making a rapid drop in the league table. Hull have managed just one win in the last five league matches. However, there is a huge contrast in terms of home form. Read More
