Birmingham skipper Davies lauds Blues supporters

Birmingham captain Curtis Davies hailed the club's supporters after losing out to Blackpool in the Championship play-off semi-final. And the ovation given by fans to the club's players and popular boss Chris Hughton at the full-time whistle showed how much they recognised the efforts of the side when expectations were at a minimum last summer.

Davies said: "It would have been easy for them at two-nil to go home but they stuck behind us and they were nearly treated to something special, unfortunately on the night it just didn't fall right for us. For them to stay until the end, all 28,000 of them, and clap us off the pitch was amazing. We're gutted for them as much as ourselves.

"I don't think the fans have judged us on this game alone, they've seen the bigger picture. We've had a 62-game season and, for me, the main thing is the fans, the manager, the coaching staff, the players, we've all been together through this whole season. That's a big thing for this club, to basically get back in the right direction after the summer we had.

"I would rather it have ended on a high but I might look back on this in two or three weeks and say it hasn't been a bad season."
