David Davis wants to cause Birmingham City manager Gary Rowett a selection dilemma

Birmingham City midfielder David Davis made his first start since January against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Birmingham City midfielder David Davis has told the Birmingham Mail that he hopes to have given Gary Rowett a selection dilemma, after his performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend.

Davis was handed his first start since January in Birmingham’s match against Wolves, and the central midfielder impressed.

Davis put in a man of the match performance at Molineux, and although Birmingham could only claim a 0-0 draw, the 25-year-old is hoping that he did enough to keep his place for the coming weeks.

“I have been waiting patiently,” Davis said.

“I have been training hard and trying to prove a point in training. I played in the week, used that as a fitness exercise and a chance to impress the gaffer.

“He showed faith in me at Wolves and for that was a chance to show I can be involved in this promotion push.

“It’s good to give him a bit of food for thought.

“For me it was about waiting for my chance and hopefully now I have taken it.”

Davis has been overlooked by Rowett more recently, with other players jumping ahead of him in the pecking order.

The former Wolves man has played 29 times for the Blues this term, but he did not manage to make it on to the field throughout the whole of February.

Rowett clearly holds Davis in high regard, though, as the midfielder was recently rewarded with a new contract at St. Andrews.

Birmingham’s next match comes against Fulham on Saturday, where Davis will be hoping to keep his place.
