Curtis Davies Unhappy with his Performance
Curtis Davies believes that his performances for Hull City this campaign are below his usual standards, and he believes that he can improve a lot.
The former Aston Villa defender is considered as one of the experienced members of this Hull City team, which saw a massive influx of new players in the summer. Despite spending big, manager Steve Bruce has been unable to get good results. They have been involved in several draws and this certainly does not help them in their efforts to avoid relegation. Pressure is mounting on Bruce after Hull slipped into the relegation zone following a 0-0 draw with West Brom.
Davies has not featured in the Hull team since the 3-0 defeat against Manchester United. He is hoping to return to the starting line-up with much better form after having this forced break at a crucial time in the season. As the captain of the team, the 29-year-old is aware that he must set an example when it comes to form. Even though they have taken two points from the last two matches, it is victories that will help the club jump significantly above the relegation zone. Their last victory in the league came in the first week of October against Crystal Palace.
“I’ve been average, not anywhere near my usual standards if I’m honest.I set high standards for myself last season and that’s frustrating. I need to put my finger on it and get back to where I was. The sooner I do that, the better. I’m not saying I’m going to turn the team around because there’s 11 players on the pitch but when you’ve got a good feeling in yourself, that can help everyone around you through individual confidence.I could make excuses for how I’ve played but I don’t know,” said Davies.
