Postponed game suits Derry

Skipper Shaun Derry admits he wasn't too bothered Crystal Palace's match at QPR was postponed.

A waterlogged pitch after heavy rain in London forced the cancellation of Tuesday night's local derby at Loftus Road.

Derry was due to make his 500th career appearance but is happier he will achieve the landmark in the home match with Derby on Saturday.

He said: "The game being called off is frustrating in that we have to wait longer to get the 4-0 defeat against Scunthorpe out of our system. But personally it works out quite well for me because it means I get to make my 500th appearance at Selhurst Park.

"I'm sure more of my family will come to watch me on a Saturday afternoon than a Tuesday night.

"It means I can celebrate with my wife in the evening instead of travelling back from Loftus Road."
