Hill hails Davies super show

Have your say

BARNSLEY boss Keith Hill hailed four-goal hero Craig Davies after the Birmingham-raised hit-man stunned his home town club on their own patch.

Davies, who doubled his scoring tally to eight for the season so far on a dream evening at St Andrews, was the first Reds player in more than 20 years to bag a four-timer in one game as Barnsley won 5-0.

After watching Davies strike his four goals inside 20 devastating second-half minutes, Hill beamed: “When Craig is in that kind of mood he can be a real handful for any defender. He’s a mobile target man who scores goals – simple.

“It’s a deserved reward because he puts lots of work in on the training pitch.”

The Reds had taken just one point from their previous 13 away fixtures.
