Curtis Davies: "I got the reaction I wanted"

Hull City's English defender Curtis Davies (2nd L) celebrates after scoring his team's first goal against Brighton and Hove Albion during an English FA Cup fifth round replay on February 24, 2014
Hull City defender Curtis Davies admits that he staged an angry outburst at his side as they trailed Sheffield United at half time in their FA Cup semi-final clash.

Hull City defender Curtis Davies has revealed that he ranted at his teammates at half time in their FA Cup semi-final clash with Sheffield United.

The Tigers trailed Nigel Clough's side 2-1 at the break, forcing the 29-year-old to let rip at his fellow players.

Immediately after the restart, Hull got an equaliser and took control of the tie to earn their place in the final with a 5-3 victory over the Blades.

Davies told The Mirror: "I left it all out there and didn't hold back. Usually I'm the type to put an arm round people and encourage them, but I thought it wasn't good enough and I told them what I thought.

"We were playing a League One side, who were outplaying us. It was embarrassing.

"Luckily I got the reaction I wanted. I'm not that type of guy, but sometimes you have to say certain things to people to give them a kick up the backside."

Hull will face Arsenal in the FA Cup final in May.
