And while Friday's opponents may have been beaten twice on the road so far this season, Davies maintains that the Dragons are a different animal on their own turf.
"The Dragons are a team with a lot to play for this weekend, like we are. They will be hurting after their last performance and it will be backs against the wall for them," said Davies.
"They are always a difficult team to play at Rodney Parade and we realize that we have to match them physically as they will come at us all guns blazing.
"It is a unique place to play in terms of its atmosphere. It is very compact, the supporters are close to the pitch and they all have views on the game and express them. It can be a very intimidating place for players and coaches to go."
The Scarlets begun the season with defeat against Magners League newcomers Treviso in Italy but have since bounced back with successive bonus-point wins in Llanelli.
But although Davies has been pleased with what he's seen in aspects of the victories over Connacht and Aironi, the former Wales centre says further improvements must be made at Rodney Parade.
"In terms of where we are, we're happy, but it won't count for much if we can't back it up," added Davies.
"I am excited about the potential of this team and with the backline and strike players we have. We endeavor to play rugby and keep the game alive. I saw a huge improvement last week and it's a process we are working along.
"We have to be accurate - even with our potential in the backline we must improve the type of ball we receive and then we must build ourselves into the game. We mustn't throw the ball too wide too early and put ourselves under pressure.
"We have to be clear about our game plan and be accurate not to allow them to come into the game through our mistakes.
"We are clear about the Dragons, but we must focus on ourselves and improve our game."
