Derbyshire not fazed by Blackburn's big-name strikers

Matt Derbyshire isn't fazed about battling the big-name strikers at Blackburn Rovers for a starting place.

He said: "People asked me if I am worried about new strikers coming in.

"But I am 21 and I'm sure it will happen for the rest of my career. There will be strikers coming in left, right and centre.

"But I just see it as good competition. If a player like Roque comes in, you can only learn from him.

"Everybody knows he's a great player. It is exciting times for the club and to have him and Benni here leading the strike force.

"The main thing for me is to get my head down and when I get on, get into the right positions and nick goals. That will do for me."
