Earnie tipped to come good

03 Oct 2007 - 07:40:02

Derby County's reserve team boss John Davies has backed Robert Earnshaw to eventually come good despite the Rams' record signing struggling in his first few weeks at Pride Park.

Since the Wales international's £3.5million summer switch from Norwich City he has failed to score in five appearances and did not play a minute of first-team action in September.

Earnshaw featured for the reserves in Monday's 1-1 draw with Reading's second string and impressed Davies, who told the Derby Evening Telegraph: "It will come good for Earnie.

"He's a good player who has scored many goals in his career. The guy needs a little break.

"Once he gets his first goal you'll see him become a very good player for the club.

"Confidence is important and strikers need a goal because that builds confidence.

"Playing 90 minutes will do him the world of good. I was pleased with his performance and it was good match fitness for him."
