Fulham midfielder Simon Davies has won praise from manager Lawrie Sanchez for his consistent performances for the Cottagers so far this season. The 28-year-old Wales international has found the net in his last two games and Sanchez is delighted with the form of the ex-Everton and Spurs wideman. He told the club's official website: "Simon is a fantastic pro. He's one who, when you name the team, will give you an eight out of ten performance week-in week-out. "He's always up there at that level of performance. Sometimes those players get lost in the system, because they get overtaken by players who are brilliant one week and not playing the following week. "He's one of those players you need in your team, players who are going to do it every week. "Then you bolt on the one or two who are going to be sparkling one week and the next week you don't know what they're going to give you. "I'm please that he's now getting recognition about how important he is to the team."
