Derbyshire happy to focus on Blues

20 Aug 2010 - 15:26:19

Matt Derbyshire will put his feelings for Blackburn Rovers aside when he makes his debut for new club Birmingham City against them on Saturday.

The former England Under-21 striker left his hometown club for Greek side Olympiacos in January but has now returned to the Premier League on a season-long loan.

Derbyshire's first game for the Blues is against Blackburn at St Andrew's, but the 24-year-old forward claims he will have no problem facing his former team-mates.

"For me, it's more important to put a Birmingham jersey on and go out do the best I can for Birmingham City, whether it's against Blackburn or anybody else," he declared.

"I believe I was quite successful at Blackburn in the games I played. I had a fantastic time at Blackburn, it's a nice club, the club I supported as a boy.

"It will be strange, of course, because I know most of the players and they know me but you've got to put it behind you and concentrate on winning the game for Birmingham."
