I don’t think we are thinking we will be involved in it [relegation battle]. It will always be in our mind that we need to perform to a better standard than we did last year because we don’t want to get dragged into that, but it is far too early to be getting into those discussions. It was always going to be tough, but we weren’t naive enough to think this season would be a breeze and it would be all rosy by Christmas. Win a few games and we are in the top half of the table and there are a lot of teams around us, so it is about finding the consistency and getting points on a more regular basis, which we know we need to do and can do,” says Tom Davies.
