Centre half Curtis Davies has been speaking ahead of the game against Sunderland this weekend, and he’s said that now Hull need to kick on in the Premier League this season.

Having secured the first win since August ahead of the international break as we took a two one victory over Southampton, with that winless streak brought to an end, Davies told the Official Site that it was imperative now that Hull got on a winning run to make up for some lost time, or at the very least an unbeaten run when we face Sunderland – a side who also won just ahead of the November break.

‘Sunderland had a great win against Bournemouth before the break and we know that they`ll have rolled their sleeves up and be up for a fight. They`ll probably see the game on Saturday as a chance to get kick-started, but we don`t want to be their catalyst for that. We want to be the ones who kick on and push ourselves on in the table, and if that also means putting more distance between ourselves and Sunderland that can only be a good thing as the season progresses.’

With the break over now and a testing run of fixtures up to the new year, Davies went on to say.

‘We`re ready for a big period in the season. We know we let ourselves down during the run of games after the last break up to the Southampton fixture. We had games that we knew we could be competitive in, but we weren`t. Fair play to the team for the way we came back after going behind against Southampton and we probably deserved the win on that day. We have to take the momentum and confidence from that win forward with us now.’

With the unfortunate and severe injury sustained by Will Keane, with news that he will be out for around 12 months, Markus Henriksen was also in front of the official site writers this week, and he had all the sympathy in the world for his young colleague – but he was adamant the first team squad would help him through this period until he returns to training once more following his knee ligament injury.

‘It`s very sad for Will, now we know how serious his injury is. It`s very tough, Will is a great man and he works very hard. I`m pretty sure he will come back strong, though, because that`s his mentality. He is a strong character. He`s still young, but of course when you do it for the second time it`s even tougher. So when we meet him back at the training ground, I and the rest of the team are going to help him come back from this.’
