Rams new Bhoy ready for debut

Rams new Bhoy ready for debut


Rams new Scottish international striker Kenny Miller admits he is itching to get out on the pitch and help his new club's bid for Premier League survival.
Billy Davies` side sit bottom of the table, having picked up only one point in the 2-2 draw against Portsmouth on the opening day of the season. They say you`re only as good as your last game and that was a humiliating 6-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.

Not exactly the way to impress new signing Miller, who is hoping to overcome a hamstring injury in time for the Rams Monday's clash with Newcastle United at Pride Park.

'I'm choking to get a game,' Miller said.
'Even to get back into training and getting amongst the lads - you miss that when you are injured. I'm just looking forward to getting fit.'

The lively striker was forced out of Scotland's squad for the Euro 2008 qualifying victories over Lithuania and France and he admits the problem has been a major frustration.

He said: 'I'm desperate to get back fit and get back playing again. Even at Celtic I only played about 100 minutes in the first five or six games.
'It's very frustrating, I hate being injured, any professional would say the same thing. I am getting there now at least.'

Miller had a stint in the Premier League with Wolves, and suffered relegation with them that season but insists he had no qualms about joining Billy Davies' side despite their lowly position and is confident they can survive.

'It's not great to be down at the bottom of the table. I have chosen to come here despite that,' he said.
'I have watched the Premier League and I see the players that are there and I believe Derby have a squad and have a good enough manager to stay in this league.
'The manager played a great part in me deciding to come. I think he has done a fantastic job in getting Derby back where they belong in the Premier League and hopefully I can still play a part in helping us stay there," Miller added.

The Rams need to stop the bleeding and on Monday night is the opportunity for the 27-year-old to show his worth and help them to the first victory of the season.

He said: "'I would love to be playing Monday night. If we can get the right result hopefully that can kick start us for the season.
'It's a massive boost when you are winning games, let's be honest nobody is going to say we are going to go on a run of winning six or seven games but not many teams will go and do that.
'If you can throw a couple of draws in there and a win it gives you that run of unbeaten games and it gives you a big pick up. It's far from over, put it that way.'
