Davies: Fallout Rumours Were Rubbish

Craig Davies says recent speculation suggesting he had fallen out with Dougie Freedman is pure rubbish.

After several months on the sidelines with a series of niggling injuries, Davies returned to the Wanderers side on Saturday for their FA Cup defeat to Cardiff City and also featured on Tuesday night as they were beaten at Queens Park Rangers.

Before that, the former Barnsley forward hadn't started a game since August - leading to speculation that he had fallen out with the Trotters boss.

The 28-year-old denies these rumours, however, saying people don't know the full story about his injury issues and that he is now focused on winning a regular place in the Bolton first-team.

"People don't know the full story about what has happened and so they start to speculate," Davies told The Bolton News.

"I have been injured for a long period of time so if the manager feels it is best for me to go on loan and get a couple of games under my belt, then so be it.

"If not, I am going to stay and fight for my place. Everyone knows I am a fighter and I am not done yet. I am going to keep on grafting because I still have another year and a half left on my contract. I am going to graft as hard as I can for as long as I can.

"I have had people come up to me saying me and the manager have fallen out, but that's nothing of the sort.

"I get on with the gaffer and I respect him a lot."
