The news that Brighton had sacked Chris Hughton after the last game of the season came as a surprise to many. Hughton job never seemed to be under threat despite the poor second half of the season and several of his former players have come out to express their support for the Englishman.
One of such players is Derby County defender Curtis Davies who posted a message on Twitter expressing his disappointment in the decision. Davies played under Hughton at Birmingham in 2011 and became one of the leaders in the team.
Curtis Davies has finally laid into Mateusz Klich for just kicking off the contention during the win of Leeds by 2-1 against the club of Bolton on the last match when he literally poured water back of Joe Williams.
A foul by the Ezgjan Alioski in the very 2nd
half resulted led to coming together between both of the teams and confronting each other, but it was exacerbated by the actions of Klich as Davies thereafter claimed that he was actually “nowhere to be visible” after that incident took place.
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 He netted twice against Bolton but he has been replaced by loanee Winnall.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.
