Birmingham City defender Curtis Davies is hoping to put things right this weekend as he looks forward to Blues Championship league clash with Doncaster Rovers.
The 26-year-old centre half is back in contention for the match on Saturday after being suspended for the Hull City game on Wednesday night following his red card against Cardiff City last week.
Davies felt the pain from afar as Blues run on their travels extended to four matches without a win, and the ex-England Under-21 international is keen to put those memories to bed with victory over Rovers on Saturday at home.
“It’s obviously been a tough couple of weeks,” Davies said. “Having gone ahead against Hull, you would like to think that we would have seen it out but they scored early in the second-half through Robert Koren and my good friend Aaron McLean managed to get the winner. It’s a shame as it’s another defeat.
“That was coming off the back of Cardiff game where I don’t think we played particularly well but I don’t think they were at their best. It wasn’t the best spectacle but we still felt that they didn’t really do much to win the game. A slight mistake has won them the game.
“Before that we had a tough game against Braga, another one where we thought we were on top and we didn’t take our chances. They scored from a deflection off me that seemed to be going well wide.
“That’s football, it’s unfortunate but we need to look at whatever positives we can take from games and take them into the next game. That tough run of away games is out the way now, our home form has been good so hopefully we can keep our run going at St. Andrew’s.”
Speaking about the incident last Sunday that saw him sent off against Cardiff, Davies won’t allow it to play on his mind.
He said: “I know I’ve touched the ball but I’ve watched the video back and I can maybe understand why a referee might have thought I had caught him. I’m not going to complain about it, it’s gone now. Luckily the game came midweek so I was able to have it out the way and be back in contention for the following weekend.
“I’m looking forward to Saturday’s game and, like I said, hopefully we can put things right.”
