HDM’s favourite son, Matt Derbyshire, is to have a hernia operation at the end of the season.

He has been training and playing with this issue for a while apparently and now faces the prospect of going under the knife in the off season.

Let’s just hope that he can contribute further for the remainder of the season and come back fit and well for the next campaign.

  • Not the greatest loss if he has to go under before the end of the season as he hasnt really had the chance to shine this season (as i predicted before the season started Mr. HDM). Fingers x’d for a quick and full recovery.

  • Just hope this wont be a new “Matt Jansen hernia operation” – it just went downhill for him after that..crashing his bike and never really got back to fitness.

  • I agree, at this stage of the season – not really a big loss.
    To be honest I’m still not sure about this guy, ok he has potential but I cant see him ever becoming a regular in the first team, not for another few years anyway if even then, he reminds me a lot of Paul Gallagher in that he’s just not good enough, physically or technically and I think his Rovers career will follow a similar path.

  • How dare you!!! (Only kidding dude, thats your opinion) I personally feel he’s been criminally under-used this season (but I suppose I would wouldn’t I seen as I’m probably his biggest fan lol!)

  • Not sure I agree with you there Spinaker matey. Derbs has the potential for sure but he has a natural goalscorers instinct and strength that Gally doesnt have. He will go far.

  • LOL, I knew you would’nt like that HDM, I know you rate him highly as does Mikey but I just dont see it happening for him at Rovers. Sparky will continue to use him in a bit-part role again next season, of that I’m certain!

  • Im sorry to say that I have to agree with Spinny here. Unless we lose one of the starting 2 strikers, Derbs is facing a season of supersubbing again.

  • I think as lng as he stays away from the injuries that have plagued him this year he has the potential to dislodge one of them… maybe Benni.

  • Hand on heart Mikey, you honestly think that? I dont think so, not in the next 12-18 months IMO. If he did, it wouldnt be a permanent replacement, maybe as Benni would be in need of a rest or a kick up the ‘arris!

  • Hand on heart I believe he will… Benni will be 32 by then and Derbs will have grown as a player… whos to say Benni will still be here??? footy s a funny game. If you told me 2 years ago that Brett would make a decent right back I would of laughed in your face.
