Forsyth hopeful he's done enough to impress Clement at Derby

Derby County star Craig Forsyth hopes he's done enough to keep his place in the team against Leeds United.

Derby County defender Craig Forsyth told the Derby Telegraph that he’s determined to keep his place in the first team under Paul Clement.

Forsyth has also promised that the Rams will be ready for the massive game against Leeds United this weekend as they look to secure their first win under the new manager and kick-start their Championship season.

“Hopefully, I've done enough to get a chance to impress again. I started the last game, so I've got to do my best to show the manager what I can do and try to keep my place,” he told the Derby Telegraph.

“We're not yet firing on all cylinders but I'm sure it will come. We want to get into a rhythm and keep the run of games going. Everybody will be ready for Leeds.”

Consistency is important for the player and the club

Consistency is the key word for Forsyth if he wants to keep his place at left-back or left midfield throughout the season.

He’s competing with a top quality and very experienced player in the form of Stephen Warnock for a position in the back four and needs to try and find a way of keeping himself ahead of the ex-Leeds man in the pecking order.

A win for Derby as a team will create some confidence and belief around the football club, which should give the squad a spring in their step and should help the side be able to string consecutive wins together over the next few weeks.
