Wanderers skipper Kevin Davies wants a more ruthless streak in front of goal if they are to build on Saturday’s first away win at Sheffield Wednesday.

The Whites ended their away hoodoo at Hillsborough but were again hanging on to secure a 2-1 triumph for the second Saturday in succession.

Davies was relieved to finally win on the road but wants the team to be more clinical, particularly with back-to-back home games against Crystal Palace and Leeds United up next.

The Wanderers captain said: “We should have been out of sight by half-time, the gilt-edged chances we created.

“We’ve still got to be a bit more ruthless and clinical to ease the pressure.

“When you’re a goal up and they get a penalty to get back in it, that’s the way things have been going, but we responded really well.

“We’re pleased – it’s not so much relief, it’s just that we know what we’re capable of doing and we feel we can take that into two big home games now.

“There’s been a lot of frustration around especially with our away performances.

“We feel that performances are gradually getting better and we deserved to win (on Saturday).”

Davies knows how important home form is and how much the fans can play their part at the Reebok.

He is again hoping both will do their bit in the next two matches.

Davies added: “The fans were fantastic on Saturday – They always back us.

“They’re frustrated because they know what we can do.

“Maybe it has taken a bit of time to adjust. We’ve certainly got the quality and there’s such competition – we’ve got the squad, and we’re all in it together.

“I feel like I’ve had this conversation before – we win a game and then we go into one and lose!

“Hopefully we can go into these two home games and the confidence and belief should be building nicely.”
