Pearson Takes The Positives

Pearson Takes The Positives

Stephen Pearson isn't too downbeat on the fact that he wasn't called into the most recent Scotland squad.

The 27-year-old hasn't played for Scotland in almost two and a half years and was left out of new Scotland boss Craig Levein's squad to face Czech Republic. Pearson says he's not that disappointed to have been left out and his priority it to remain fit for Derby then he'll see what happens.

"I wasn't really disappointed. I take it as it comes.

If it comes, great. If it doesn't, I'll try to keep doing well for Derby.

If I'm not playing well for Derby, I won't get any recognition. First of all, it is about staying fit and playing well for Derby. Whatever else happens is a bonus."

The most important thing for the midfielder is that he's feeling good at the moment and is hoping to keep himself injury free, after a nightmare couple of years with injuries for us.

"It's been stop-start for me since I signed. I've played five or six games and then missed a couple, so to play 20-odd games is good and I'm feeling stronger fitness-wise. It's as good as I've felt for Derby.

I'm training every day and playing games every week. I'm keeping myself fit and keeping myself in the best shape possible. I feel better in myself and physically stronger for getting a run of games.

I've been unfortunate with injuries but hopefully I've put that behind me now.

I'm feeling injury-free, which is good, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the season. Hopefully, I'll stay fit."

Pearson was talking to BBC Sport.

I like Pearson's attitude and outlook on things, however I'm certain that if he stays injury free, can sustain a run in the Rams side and show good form that he'll return to the international scene sooner rather than later.

What he does for us is our priority though!
