Hull boss Bruce hails Davies leadership qualities

Hull City boss Steve Bruce is delighted with the early impact of Curtis Davies.

Just three months after his summer arrival from Birmingham City in a £2.25m deal, Davies is now wearing the captain's armband.

"Curtis had been the captain of Birmingham for a few years so I knew the added responsibility wouldn't weigh him down," said Bruce.

"That's why I leaned towards the experience of Curtis, even though he's only been here for three months. He's a natural leader and that comes from within.

"Curtis has earned the respect of his team-mates straight away. He's a smashing lad, a good pro and a winner."
