Southampton midfielder Steven Davis believes he has nothing to prove when he takes on former club Fulham today.

The Northern Ireland international spent less than a season with the Cottagers back in 2007 before leaving for Rangers and admits it was not an easy time for him.

"It was a difficult period for the club because a lot of new players came in and it took time for us all to gel," said the 27-year-old, quoted in the Daily Star.

"As I had not played a lot of football for the previous six months, it was difficult for me too.

"I was only there for a short time before I joined Rangers but I don't have anything to prove to them.

"It is always nice to score against your old team and it is important to get goals from midfield, so I would love to get one."

Saints have won just one game so far on their return to the top flight and conceding goals has been an issue but Davis believes the team can now enjoy a good run starting at the weekend.

"You cannot go into a game thinking we need to score four to win," he added.

"But we are coming into a run of games where we can pick up some points."
