Speaking to the club’s official website, Derby County defender Curtis Davies has said that he is determined to help the Rams amend their poor away form against Blackburn Rovers this weekend.
Derby County’s form at home has seen them maintain one of the best home records in the Championship, but their poor form on the road is preventing them from hitting a strong run of form. The club have won just once on the road, drawing three and losing five and now, captain Curtis Davies has said he is confident the Rams can fix their away form.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Davies said that their next win on the road could see a big change in mentality within the squad. He said:
“It probably is a mentality thing and away from home, first and foremost, you need to be solid. We conceded inside the opening six minutes in our last away game at Fulham (lost 3-0) and that wasn’t good enough. When you speak about the mentality, a win can change everything because that’s how football works.
“I didn’t play earlier in the season but when I came into the side against Birmingham in September we hadn’t won since the opening day. We beat Birmingham at home and by the following weekend we had seven points from a possible nine and we could, and probably should, have had the maximum return.
“As I said, it just takes that win and shows that you are capable of getting a result away from home and we want to address the away form on Saturday when we head to Blackburn.”
