Davies has impressed everyone from the day he made his debut but yesterday’s performance against Manchester City set pulses racing, especially when it was capped off with a wonderful goal.
But Unsworth says that his performance yesterday was the first time he has seen Davies perform to his ability since he broke into the first team.
“For the first time since he has been in the first team, I saw what I would call a normal Tom Davies performance,” Unsworth said.
“He has been getting better and better and I was sitting next to Joe Royle and said to him, ‘That’s Tom.’ All action, box to box, little bits of skill here and there, tough tackling.
“The goal that he scored I have seen him score before. I thought he came of age, I really did. Both him and Mason Holgate.
“It is normal and natural that young players find their way. Energy and attitude are a given at this football club, but we saw that quality as well.”
