Eleven weeks have passed since Earnshaw's last start in the League, but Davies insists he's still in his plans.

"There is no conspiracy theory. I have not fallen out with Rob," said Davies.

"He had a bad injury at Norwich last season and was out for a long time. He came back but was not fit enough or sharp enough at the start of the season.

"But over the last three or four weeks I am beginning to see a Rob Earnshaw that is latching on to balls and putting himself into positions to score.

"He is now very, very close to starting."
