Derbyshire: Patience Is The Key
A lot has been made of the Blackburn Rovers striking options, and how strong this department is (which it is!) which is making it difficult for some to get into the starting XI, Matt Derbyshire included.
However, even though some might view it as him slipping down the pecking order (which it isn't!) Derbyshire is taking the VERY impressive stance (and showing great maturity) by seeing this as a chance to learn from the very best and bide his time, with patience being the most important thing.
Derbyshire told the Lancashire Telegraph: "I wouldn't say I'd fallen behind in the pecking order. I'd say at the moment the guys have got their place, but working with them in training has been unbelievable, the likes of Roque Santa Cruz and Benni McCarthy and Jason Roberts, it's not bad.
"All I can do is learn from these players and get better.
"At this moment in time, obviously I want to be starting and I can take the things I've learned from training into a game."
Derbyshire has a MASSIVE future (with Rovers and England) and HAS to make the most of having the likes of Benni McCarthy and Roque Santa Cruz etc. to learn from, along with Mark Hughes, as he can learn so much from them.
