Derbs Ready For The Call
Blackburn Rovers striker Matt Derbyshire has said that he is ready for the call should it come from Paul Ince, and if/when it does he will take it!
Derbyshire came off the bench to score the winning goal against Fulham on Saturday, but has been limited to substitute appearance this season with his only start coming against Grimsby in the Second Round of the Carling Cup (and he scored two goals that evening!!!) However, the England Under-21 International is determined to take his chance when they come as he knows he can score goals, but doesn't know how many he will score unless he knows he will have chances.
Derbyshire told the Daily Star: "Every player has targets at the start of the season, but you can't reach those targets if you're not playing every week.
"If I was playing every week, I'd be aiming at double figures as far as goals are concerned.
"But I'm not, so I have to grab whatever opportunity I can.
"It's down to me to perform and down to the manager to pick me to play. If he does, then I know I will perform."
Roque Santa Cruz is our number one striker now and with the form Jason Roberts has been in it is hard for him to be left out! All Derbs can keep doing is taking his chances when they come, if he does then a decision will need to be made by Ince. Derbs is a local boy and a Rovers fan so he is happy, but he won't always be happy and a time will come when a decision MUST be made, I just hope that this decision isn't made rashly.
