Striker praises team-mates
“It’s been a nice week,” said Davies. “I’m glad to have had a rest because my groins have been on fire recently! It’s been nice to have some time to myself.
Reds striker Craig Davies spoke to the press ahead of Saturday’s match with Ipswich Town at Oakwell.
“It was a very good team performance at Birmingham. We took the game to them and they didn’t like it. The score-line reflected that.
"I watched the game once and analysed what I did right and wrong. Maybe my ball retention, it’s got a bit better and I’m hoping to keep improving and kicking on from there.
“Goals are good, but there are other things as well. I wouldn't think it’s the best performance from me just because you score goals, I’ve maybe not scored and probably played better but this one gets highlighted because I scored.
“I’m confident if the team plays like that, I will score.”
Despite stealing the headlines for himself, the 26-year-old has lavished praise on his team-mates for making it all possible.
“The people I’ve worked with have helped me a lot,” he added. “My team-mates have helped me a lot. I’ve put in a lot of graft and tried to do the right things. I’m trying to improve my all-round game. The service I’ve been getting has been unbelievable. Look at the likes of Jacob Mellis, Scott Golbourne, right the way through to the back and to the goalkeeper.
“We all believe in each other more and more, especially after the weekend. Hopefully we can take it into the Ipswich, Peterborough and Leeds games.
“Everybody might bet talking about me because of the goals, but if you look at the likes of Chris Dagnall and Stephen Dawson – they were unbelievable.
“It’s best not to get carried away with anything. We’re going to try our best every game but some games it will happen, other games it won’t. People need to realise it won’t be like that every week, they just need to bear with us.”
