Davies Ready for Villa Fight

Curtis Davies is now fully fit and raring to go having recovered from a hamstring injury that meant he sat out Villa’s 2-0 victory against Chelsea at Villa Park.

Davies, who is described as an “on-loan defender” having moved across town from rivals West Brom, wasn’t able to play any part in a game that saw Martin O’Neill’s side capitalise impressively from a Chelsea team looking distinctly out of sorts.

With the back four of Mellberg, Knight, Laursen and Bouma impressing in the last Premiership match it will be tough for the 22 year old to break straight into the squad; however he is hopeful that it can be done in the near future.

Talking to avfc.co.uk Davies said: 'My fitness is good now. I was worked like a dog when I had my hamstring problem, but that's what I needed so that when I did join the rest of the lads I was ready to compete.

'Now I'm fit and as long as I'm in training I feel that I can do a job for the gaffer. So if he wants to pick me, I'm ready to take someone's place.”

The gaffer however, has a slightly more realistic view on the injury sustained and subsequent recovery: 'He's doing a wee bit. We have to ease him into it. He's been out for some time and the last thing we want to do is over-stretch him.But he's on his way back.

'He's feeling pretty good and obviously he's desperate to get started. But I'm looking at things in the long-term, rather than one game coming up on Sunday.'
