Spurs travel to Craven Cottage for a sold-out Premier League clash, with Mark Hughes' men unbeaten in the top-flight this season, although they have only managed one win in seven games.

Welshman Davies believes Tottenham will be tough opponents but is confident the Cottagers have what it takes to get back on the winning road.

"We look a really dangerous team and it has been a shame that we have not gone on and won a couple more games, but the longer the season goes on, the better I am sure we will become," he told the club's official website.

"Spurs have got some great individual players, as they always have had, but they are really playing as a team now - that is why they are doing so well in the league and in the Champions League.

"It is going to be a tough game, but we have done all right against them over the last few years.

"The Cottage is a difficult place to come to and hopefully we can keep our home form going."

Davies, 31, has retired from international football so did not link up with the Wales squad during the recent domestic break.

Keeping fit

However, he has been working hard to keep up to speed in West London and says boss Hughes wants every player to work as hard as they can in training.

"The manger's really keen to keep people as fit as possible," he added.

"We had a nice weekend off, but we came back and everyone's getting ready for Tottenham, which we know is going to be a tough game.

"It's been quite a small group that we've been working with every day. The sessions have been intensive - you definitely get your work in.

"It's been good, but it's a long time to go without a game so it'll be good when everyone's back.

"For the lads that are here it's about getting your head down and training as hard as you can."
