Last season it enabled the more attacking and creative players to shine, and I’m hoping to do a similar job this year.“Time will tell. Obviously the class of opposition is going to be better, but we’ve all got something to prove and I certainly feel like I have. I want to prove people wrong again and show that I can play at that level.”Derry’s new contract is with a view to him taking a coaching role at Loftus Road in the future.last_img read more
