Steven Davies vowed not to “cause trouble in camp” because he isn’t in Paul Ince’s starting 11, writes WILLIAM WATT.
And Blackpool’s summer signing from Bristol City admits fellow striker Ricardo Fuller has been too good to leave out
Davies fired his second goal for the club in Pool’s last match, the 3-2 defeat by Ipswich, but he hasn’t started a game since the trip to Middlesbrough in August.
But Davies realises Fuller’s form is the reason. “Ricky has been brilliant, top-class,” he said.
“I’m not the type of bloke to go to the manager’s office kicking and screaming because I’m not playing.
“Ricky has kept his place on merit. He’s done very well. All I can do is be there to back him up.
“I came here to play and obviously I want to be playing, but I’m not going to start causing trouble in the camp. It’s going to take us all, not just Ricky. When I get my chance, I’ll take it.”
The 25-year-old scored just four minutes into his Blackpool career on the opening day at Doncaster.
Since then the Liverpudian has found chances hard to come by but he insists he’ll get better as his fitness improves.
Davies added: “It will take time. I can do all the work in the world in training but nothing replicates the games.
“The more game time I get, the better I’ll be. I’m 100 per cent sure of that.
“I just keep plugging away and when I get the nod I’ll be better.”
