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.
He admitted that the team is still learning and that they are still recovering from the pre-season, but they will have to start winning games. He said that the only way to get promotion is to win games and it does not matter whether you play ugly.
Curtis Davies said that the strikers would need to start scoring more goals and the defenders and goalkeeper will have to give their best in order to keep clean sheets.
He said that there is a good team spirit within the team and that the players are focused on the objectives. He believes that soon they will start winning games and that they will start climbing up the table. He said that there is a good chance that they will be near the play-off places when it comes to the end of the season.
