Derby County boss Billy Davies is confident new signing Kenny Miller will make an impact - possibly as early as tonight against Newcastle United.

Davies said: "It was important to make that type of signing before the window shut.

"With his energy, his attitude and his goalscoring record he's a huge signing.

"Getting those two (Miller and Barnes) into this team will be of great benefit. We do have a great lot of work to do with the team and that will be helped by these new players coming in."
