Davies - Big games are ideal prep

Last Updated: Tue, 08 Apr 2014 13:52

Sheffield United's Ben Davies believes recent tough league games are the ideal preparation for the FA Cup semi-final clash with Hull.

The Blades have drawn their last two league games against automatic promotion chasers Brentford and Leyton Orient and take on another, Rotherham, at Bramall Lane on Tuesday night.

"If you can prepare for a game like (Sunday's) then these are the sort of games you want to be playing in," said Davies, 32, who could make his loan switch from Derby a permanent move in the summer.

"There is an eye on next season and these are also the sort of games we would be need to be winning if we are going to win the league next season. They are good games for the lads to play in."

Davies, who has made 13 appearances for the Blades since arriving in mid-February, has not given up on a late play-off charge.

"I think we can still get there," he added. "It will be tough, we will need to win every game.

"We have been on a run like that before so we can do it."
