There’s more to come from me, says Davies

Steven Davies has a message for Blackpool’s supporters - you haven’t seen the best of me.

The striker has found the net twice since his summer move from Bristol City after arriving with a reputation of scoring goals.

He’s yet to nail down a regular place in the starting line-up, but has started Pool’s last three games.

And he promises fans there’s much more to come.

“I don’t think I’ve done myself justice yet here,” he said.

“Everywhere I’ve been in my career I’ve always scored goals and so far I haven’t.

“Although I haven’t played as much as I’d have liked so far.

“But I know that the more I play, the more I’ll score here.

“I think I was a little bit unlucky with a couple of chances on Saturday against Burnley.

“But I’m confident in my ability at this level, I know I’ll score goals.

“As long as I keep working hard, if I do the goals will follow.”

Blackpool welcome Leeds United to Bloomfield Road this evening on the back of a run of four defeats on the bounce.

Boss Paul Ince handed the players Christmas Day off to spend time with their families in the hope they will return the favour with a win this afternoon.


It’s the start of three games in a week for the Seasiders, and Davies is aiming for maximum points.

He said: “If you look at the recent performances, other than the Derby game, we’ve been in with a shout of taking all three points.

“If we keep working hard we know it will turn.

“We started the season well so we know things will turn around.

“We just need to get out of this sticky patch.

“Christmas is one of the most important times of the year with so many games.

“We have three quick games on the bounce now and if we can win them we will be right back up there.

“We are looking to take all nine points and see where we end up.

“We are confident we can get out of this run of bad results. We have big characters coming back now, and it can surely only help us.”

Davies has played 16 times since arriving from Bristol City in a deal worth £500,000 in the summer.

After being hit with a stomach tear at the end of August, the striker says he’s finally feeling back to full strength.

“I came back after my 
injury and wasn’t quite right, but the gaffer needed me,” he said.

“Over the last international break I managed to have an injection to settle the problem down and I’ve felt brilliant since.

“The only way I can get fit is by playing games.

“I’ve played the last three now and I’m feeling fitter.”
