Derby County striker Steven Howard is confident he can score goals in the Premiership.

The big Geordie is waiting for his first goal this season and said: "I had my chances against Newcastle and hand on heart, I should have scored - it's as simple as that.

"It would have been great to score against Newcastle, great to get a goal, but I have to take that on the chin and keep going the way I do.

"I said the same last season when I was waiting for a goal. As long as you get your head down and work hard, the goals will come."
