Davies Relieved After First Home Win of 2011

Davies Relieved After First Home Win of 2011

Steven Davies said the Derby County team were relieved to get their first home win since November 20th 2010 as he scored their second goal yesterday to Swansea City 2-1.

The Swans were below par, and they struggled in the first half as the home side's confidence was given a boost after Ashley Williams' early own goal gifted the Rams the lead.

Steven Davies then netted a second early in the second half which made it even more difficult for the Swans to get back into the game.

Davies said he thought Derby out-battled and out-performed the Swans:

'I don't think we nicked the points, I thought we out-battled them throughout and out-played them at times.

'The luck for the first goal helped us massively and set us on our way.

'We're delighted and relived more than anything because a result at home has been a long, long time coming.

'We felt we owed it to the fans, so the win was more of a thank you to them rather than a pat on the back for ourselves.'

'To pull a performance out like that took a huge amount of effort,' he said.

'I thought we were magnificent and everyone was absolutely shattered at full time.

'We had to work as hard as we could and the manager made it clear we had to do that from the off to be in with a chance.

'In the last few weeks we've been a bit nervous at Pride Park, but the early goal gave us belief and we took it from there.'
