Preston striker Kevin Davies has spoken of the relief of finally scoring his 150th career goal.

The 37-year-old, who won his only England cap in 2010, had not scored since January 2014 before his headed winner on Saturday against Coventry.

The former Chesterfield, Southampton, Blackburn and Bolton forward reached the milestone in 806 appearances.

"It's been a long time coming, so I am pleased to get it and get it out the way I suppose," said Davies.

"It's finally over and people can stop saying 'is it going to be today?'"

Davies joined the Lilywhites in the summer of 2013 on a two-year deal after was released by Bolton after 10 years with the club.

His winner for Simon Grayson's side at the weekend was his first goal of the season, having featured more as a substitute than a starter this term.

"I've not started that many games in the last 12 months, but I've had six or seven since Joe Garner's been out," Davies added.

"They've given me a couple of shirts with the 150 on, I think they've had it made up for about a year now.

"Personally it's nice to get it off and forget about it to concentrate on my normal game really."
