DAVIES: I'M LOOKING TO REPAY MANAGER'S FAITH

15 September 2014

Gillingham FC defender Callum Davies says he wants to repay the faith put in him by Manager Peter Taylor after a good run in the first XI

Callum Davies says he is more than willing to play in different positions if it means getting regular games under his belt.

The defender got the nod at right back against Oldham on Saturday and contributed to keeping a clean sheet with a 0-0 draw at Boundary Park, and he says he’s hoping to repay Peter Taylor’s faith in him.

He said: “I just want to play Football and if I have to move around positions then I’m happy to do that.

“He’s shown faith in me and given me chances in different positions so hopefully I’m repaying his faith.”

Callum praised the togetherness of the players following the game on Saturday, and although conceded Gills can play better, he was happy to claim a draw.

He added: “At the end of the day we got a point out of the game so we’ve got to be happy with that – we’ll move on to Tuesday night now and see what happens there.

“We’ve been working hard on defending and attacking play and although it wasn’t the best of performances we got a clean sheet and you have to take your hat off to everyone really.”

Gillingham are preparing to take on Peterborough United at MEMS Priestfield Stadium on Tuesday night, and Davies is looking forward to seeing Jack Payne again after coming through the youth setup alongside him.

Jack was made the Posh Captain before the start of the season, and Callum says he will prove to be a good choice.

He added: “I’m looking forward to seeing Jack at Priestfield, I still talk to him and obviously he’s local and I was in the U16’s with him and came all the way through.

“He text me in pre-season actually saying the gaffer had told him about being Captain but I didn’t think it would fit his arm!

“I think he’ll make a great Captain, he’s a great player but hopefully we can upset him on Tuesday night.”
