Blackburn matchwinner Derbyshire celebrating perfect week

Blackburn Rovers striker Matt Derbyshire admits his winner at Newcastle capped off a wonderful week.

Derbyshire said: "It's been a great week. I've become the father of two beautiful children, Braidin and Callum, on Thursday and I scored the goal which got us the three points.

"If we keep picking up the points at home then there's no reason why we can't push for that European spot.

"I've been wanting to celebrate the arrival of the twins for a couple of days and what a perfect way to do it.

"I wondered whether I was going to be able to play because my girlfriend Melissa was in labour for such a long time."
