Lads Are High in Confidence - Davies

29 February 2016

Reds ‘keeper Adam Davies spoke to the press this morning after helping the Reds to their ninth win out of 11 games with a 2-1 win at Crewe.


Davies spoke about the team's excellent run of form and how the side has turned it around.


“It was another good win for us (Crewe).” Davies explained. “We fully deserved it, we had the better chances and I didn’t have too much to do. We’re three points off the Play-Offs so we’re in amongst it.


“There’s some big games coming up now. We’ve got Coventry, then Walsall, so I think if we can get a few results in the next few games we’ll be right up there.


“It’s been crazy, football can change like that. We were down the bottom six or seven weeks ago, now we’re right in amongst it and have a trip to Wembley.


“It shows we’ve got really good character. We all stuck together in the tough times and the club kept it the same. We knew we could get out of that predicament and we’ve never looked back after the run of games we’ve been on.


“There’s always one team that comes from nowhere and fights for a Play-Off spot, so hopefully that can be us, I don’t see why not. We’re on a great run and the confidence is flying.


“We need to not let it get to us and keep playing well, keep shutting them out at the back and the lads upfront are scoring.


“Everyone has a lot of respect for Hecky (Paul Heckingbottom), he’s kept things the same and obviously Tommy (Wright) is here as well. Hopefully we can keep it going now.”


On a personal note for Davies, this has been a season which he has cemented a first-team place for the first time in his career. The Reds stopper has been in excellent form and combined with a tough defence, has kept six clean sheets in the last eight games.


“I’ve played 33 games already this season which is the most I’ve ever played.” Said Davies. “I’m getting that consistency. We’ve had a lot of games Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday, and it’s a good learning curve for me to get a lot of games quickly like that, I’m enjoying it.


“This is my chance to get games under my belt and kick on. I don’t want to look too far ahead though, I’m taking it game by game and I’m really enjoying it. I’m only 23, I’m still young so I just want to keep playing and taking it week by week.”
