Birmingham striker Matt Derbyshire is eyeing more success in the Carling Cup semi-final first leg at West Ham after finally kick-starting his Blues career at the weekend.Derbyshire has put himself firmly in contention for the match at Upton Park after netting twice in the 4-1 triumph at Millwall in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.The former Blackburn player has struggled to establish himself since moving to St Andrew's on loan from Greek outfit Olympiacos, but that frustration will be eased if he can help Birmingham reach their first major final for a decade.Derbyshire said: "It's been very difficult for me. I won't lie to you. I haven't been given a massive opportunity at Birmingham City so far."I was obviously thinking `is this the right place for me at the moment?' But hopefully this can be the start of things to come for me back in England."
