New England's Davies absolutely thrilled to be back in MLS

Charlie Davies made his first MLS appearance since 2011 when he stepped out for the New England Revolution in their 2-0 home win over Chicago Fire on the weekend.

The 27-year old forward, who is on loan from Danish club Randers, replaced Chad Barrett in the 78th minute as he returned to MLS action following his short-term spell with DC United just under two years ago.

New Hampshire native Davies was thrilled to get some minutes out of the way and was now looking forward to contributing more to the Revs cause.

"Once you get the actual 'You're going in,' [it is] just sheer excitement," Davies told MLSsoccer.com.

"I'm so happy to be back. I'm so happy to be part of this team and this organization that I've grown up watching and it's an exciting time.

"I was just unlucky not to finish my chances, but they'll come. As a striker, it has to go in and out if it doesn't work out for you.

"I've kind of come in here with the idea of playing a lot, helping this team win and putting all the pressure on myself to be the guy that the team can lean on and depend on to grind out results, to make it happen, to get this team to the playoffs.

"We'll see how each game goes. Step by step, I think I'll get there."
