Curtis Davies has not ruled out chance of him playing in play-offs

Curtis Davies has not ruled out chance of him playing in play-offs

Derby County put in a very impressive performance against Hull City last time out in the Championship, which helped keep their play-off dreams alive. 

The Rams won’t accept anything less than a play-off spot in the current campaign as they’ve been in and around the play-offs pretty much all season, which can largely be put down to Frank Lampard’s efforts.

And, the Championship club received a potentially big boost recently, as according to the Derby Telegraph, Curtis Davies has not ruled out the chance of him playing in the play-offs, should the Rams get there.

Curtis Davies has not ruled out the chance of him playing in the play-offs, should the Rams make it.

Sadly, the Englishman sustained a ruptured Achilles in a 2-1 loss to Stoke in late November.

But, he had this to say when speaking to Sky Sports before Aston Villa’s draw with Sheffield United:

“It’s going well, it’s a slow burner, you have to take your time with it,”

“I think the closer I get to it [Play-offs], if I’ve got half-a-chance knowing me I will push myself.

“But it’s one thing saying you’ll be fit but it’s another getting back into a team after five or six months out on the sidelines.”

THE VERDICT:

Curtis Davies played a big part towards the start of the season and it’s safe to say that the Rams have missed having his leadership qualities at the back.

But, the defender provided the club with a potentially big boost by not ruling himself out of featuring in the play-offs if they make it, as his experience and quality would work wonders in those sort of pressurised games.
