I Don't Envisage A Runaway Leader

23 September 2015

Steve Davis believes League One has become more competitive because gap has become closer.

Steve Davis says that League One is as competitive as it has ever been because the gap between the clubs has decreased. The Alex boss believes that there is no one special team in League One to rival those of Bristol City last season or Wolverhampton Wanderers of last season.

The Alex boss says he is not that surprised to see the likes of newly promoted Burton Albion, Walsall and Rochdale up in the top six at the beginning of the season because the division is filled with very good teams. It is about sustaining that consistency when the squad can be affected by injuries or suspensions.

Ahead of our trip to the Banks’s Stadium, Steve told “There are a lot of very good sides in the league but I don’t think there is a Bristol City, Wolves and Preston of old. There is not that very special team who could run away with it.

“There are a lot of very good sides though and that makes it tough because there is not a lot in the games. Of the teams we have played this season, I think Coventry have probably been the best we have played. We also did well away at Wigan, who you would expect to be there because of their budget, and we only lost those two games because of the odd goal.

“I am not totally surprised that the likes of Burton, Walsall and Rochdale are up there after making good starts. They are good sides and there is not that much difference in all the teams.

“From our point of view it shows that you can go on a mini-runs and it is just about the players having that belief in themselves to do it. If we can string two, three, four good results together then we will be in a much better position and that’s our aim.”
