Davies said: "As long as performances are improving and as long as the club can see positive signs, we can ask no more. We are getting better. The players have worked very hard for me.

"The first point away from home is always nice. But we have just got to keep working away because it is a marathon.

"The big warning sign was there at half-time to the players because 10-men is not easy to play against. But I thought we put in a lot of good performances and created a lot of chances.

"Excellent goalkeeping on their part. But I am delighted with the spirit and effort of the players. I am very confident with the people that we've got, that we can consolidate ourselves in the Premier League."
