Price wants Derby stay

Lewis Price has vowed to stay at Derby and fight for his place next season.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper has become number two since the arrival of Roy Carroll, whose attitude has already found favour with manager Paul Jewell.

Price is not prepared to give up on his Derby career though, insisting he will stay for next season even if he does not feature again in the current campaign.

"Roy is a good keeper. He's been at some great clubs and watching him train, I've learned a lot from him," Price told The Derby Evening Telegraph.

"It's nice to have played a few games, don't get me wrong. But I'm not the type of person who sits back and thinks 'Oh I've played a couple of games, I'll be all right now'. Having played those games, I want to kick on.

"I wanted to see out the season as the number one goalkeeper. Unfortunately for me, that couldn't happen - so now I've got to look to the future.

"Hopefully, I can play a few more games before the end of the season. If not, I'll look to next season and try and really push Roy for all he's got.

"I'm not going to give up, I'm going to fight Roy all the way. It's just something I've got to do for my own career."
