Davidson reviews Thursday night’s draw
- Jason Davidson reviews draw with Nottingham Forest
- Australian thinks the Terriers were worth the win
- Defender says Town's team has 'found its feet'
Jason Davidson believes Town’s 1-1 draw at home to Nottingham Forest on Thursday night was more evidence that the team has found its feet in the 2015/16 Sky Bet Championship.
The Terriers fell behind through Ryan Mendes’ first half sucker-punch, but Powell’s side kept going and got their just rewards through Emyr Huws’ late leveller.
“We got the point, which I think is the least we deserved. There’s a bit of frustration that we didn’t get all three,” the Australian international told htafc.com.
“We started off well and I think they only got into our box one time, but they punished us. After that, they kind of sat back for the whole game and we tried to get the goal back. Fortunately for us we did, but we didn’t have enough time to get the second.”
Like his Manager, Jason was keen to praise teammate Martin Cranie for a superb goal-line clearance in the second half:
“That kept us in the game. At 1-0 down, it would have killed the game off if they scored that. As a defender, that is what you are paid for; stopping goals. Strikers are paid to score goals, but defenders have to step up to the plate and Martin did to keep us in the game.
“Stopping one on the line like that gave us a lifeline and then we managed got the goal back to get a point.”
Summer recruit Davidson believes that the Terriers have shown they can go toe-to-toe with what the Championship has to offer already this term:
“That wasn’t just against Nottingham – if you look at all the other teams we’ve played, I think we have gone shoulder-to-shoulder with them too.
“We got two great results in the previous two games and that’s given us a bit of momentum. Confidence is high and we’re trying to keep that going. Everybody has their head screwed on and we’re taking each game as it comes. Like I said, I just think there is a bit of disappointment that we didn’t make it three wins from three.
“We were trying to find our feet in the first few weeks by changing formation, but now we’ve found our feet and confidence is high. The team is gelling and I think we are really starting to show ourselves under the Manager.”
Now the focus switches to the next game; the Sky Bet Championship trip to Wolves on Saturday 3 October.
“We’re in for a recovery session on Friday. It’s all about recovering now and making sure that the body is right before the next game at Wolves before the international break.”
