Kevin Davies is probably one of the most underrated footballers in the country. 

He has been an unsung hero at Bolton for many years now, and rarely gets the credit he deserves, instead he is usually just known as someone who commits fouls, bullies players and picks up plenty of bookings.

But for anyone with a half decent footballing brain, and anyone who saw Bolton's 4-2 victory over Tottenham last weekend, will realise Davies has much more to his game than just getting 'stuck in'.

Now, I admit it is unusual to see Davies score a goal from outside the box, but the striker showed a great amount of precision to find the bottom corner past Gomes, from outside the area, on his weaker foot.

And after he coolly put away his penalty, incidentally he has the best penalty record out of any England striker for his club, and commonly finds the top corner with his spot kicks.

Davies showed why his link-up skills are a joy to behold when he set up Martin Petrov for the decisive fourth goal.
