Derby boss Davies: Pearson has big future

Derby County boss Billy Davies has heaped more praise on one of his big revelations this season, Stephen Pearson.

Davies said: "He has got a pre-season under his belt, he is now playing on a regular basis, his fitness is where it should be, he is being consistent and is growing in confidence.

"Pearo is only 25 and has a big future ahead of him. Having given him that debut all those years ago at Motherwell and having watched him then, I knew he could go on and become a top player."
