DAVIES WANTS TO FINISH THE SEASON STRONGLY

21 April 2015

Including this Tuesday's trip to Scunthorpe United, City have three Sky Bet League 1 fixtures left this season - and the fit-again Andrew Davies wants to make the most of every single one of them.

Davies returned to City's starting line up at Sheffield United at the weekend after missing five games with a hamstring injury picked up towards the back end of last month.

Although City cannot now mathematically qualify for the end-of-season Play-Offs, Davies says, despite the injury, he was always determined to get back into the Bantams' line up and play his part for the final part of the 2014/2015 campaign.

Davies was part of the City side that finished last season with three wins out of their last four games - a run that helped Phil Parkinson's men to a top half finish. 

Roughly twelve months on, the influential defender now wants to help Parkinson's side enjoy a similarly strong ending to this year.

Davies said: "It was important for me to get back playing before the end of the season.

"I think for some people it could have been easy to have written the season off when you are getting a hamstring injury at the end of March but I said straight away that I'll be back (before the end of the year).

"After the Bristol City game, we had to show on Saturday (at Sheffield United) what it really means to play for this football club.

"The manager asked for a committed performance from us, and I think we gave that.

"It was nice last season to finish the season with some wins - it just sends you off for the summer in good spirits.

"It is a great feeling when you can go away with good results from your last few games, and that's what we'll be looking to do again this season."
