Clarke tipped to follow Blackburn pal Derbyshire

Accrington Stanley striker Paul Mullin says on-loan Blackburn youngster Jamie Clarke can follow in the footsteps of his Ewood Park teammate Matt Derbyshire.

"Matty Derbyshire got a good run of goals when he went to Wrexham and kicked on from there. I am sure Jamie has seen that and there's no reason why he can't do the same," said Mullin.

"He has settled in well with the lads here and has the confidence to express himself and once he gets that first goal I'm sure that will set him off.

"I think once he gets his first one, which will not be too far away, he will get confidence from that and kick on."
