Competition is no problem for Jason Davidson.

After Ben Chilwell’s return to Premier League high-fliers Leicester City, the Australian international is aiming to keep the Huddersfield Town left-back berth ahead of Middlesbrough loanee James Husband.

Davidson has succeeded so far, starting both the FA Cup third-round clash with Reading, which finished 2-2, and the 5-0 Championship thumping of Charlton Athletic.

And the close-season signing from West Bromwich Albion scored his first goal in English football on Tuesday to boot.

“It’s been a good few days, but I’m not getting carried away,” said the 24-year-old from Melbourne.

“I got my second start under the new gaffer last Saturday. And I was more than happy to keep my place against Charlton, so to get my first goal in the UK as well was great.

“I know the coach likes to rotate to keep things fresh.

“And I have no problem with competition, because it’s a part of football at our level.

“All I can do is work as hard as I can in training and make sure that when I am on the pitch, I perform.”

Davidson, who has made 19 Town appearances in all, said the timing of his last international call-up in October came at a tricky time.

“The new coach arrived at the same time I was leaving the country,” he recalled.

“That meant I missed the training camp in Spain when he planted the seed of his ideas.

“As a result of that, I have been playing catch-up.

“It’s an honour and a privilege to play for your country.

“But I have had quite a few trips this season and that may have taken its toll a little bit. The positive of sitting it out when Ben (Chilwell) was here and doing well is that I was able to recharge the batteries.

“I was just waiting for a chance, and I got one at QPR, when I thought I did well.

“Now James ((Husband) is here and I know I have to be on my toes.”

Davidson says Town, who are 16th to Fulham’s 19th, should have won at Craven Cottage back in August, when Cauley Woodrow’s stoppage-time equaliser tied the game at 1-1.

“Fulham are a big club with some big-name players,” he added.

“But we have been doing well. I think that other sides are starting to recognise that and giving us more respect.

“We were unlucky not to get the win down at Fulham, so we need to work hard to put it right.”

Town have loaned development midfielder Ben Holmes to Hyde United for the remainder of the season.

The 19-year-old has already been told he won’t be offered a new contract this summer so the switch effectively ends his time at Town.

Holmes, from Oldham, joined Town’s academy from Heyside Juniors in 2010, graduating to the professional ranks in 2014.
