Roberts Commits Future To Rovers
Blackburn Rovers striker Jason Roberts has played down recent newspaper reports that have said Paul Jewell wants to be reunited with him at his new club Derby County.
Roberts knows that there is competition for places at Ewood Park now, and he has to battle with Benni McCarthy, Roque Santa Cruz, Matt Derbyshire and Maceo Rigters (even though he doesn't feature that often) for a starting place but doesn't want to leave, as he sees this as a healthy thing and wont let this work against him, so he will used this as a positive thing as he wants to remain a part of what promises to be another successful season at Ewood Park.
Roberts said: "We've got a lot of talent in the squad, not only up front but in all different positions.
"There's competition for places everywhere, and if you start to look at that and become negative, you're going to have a real problem.
"I think the best way of dealing with it is to remain focused and try to earn a chance to impress."
