Blackburn striker Matt Derbyshire is unsure of how long he will remain at Wrexham.
Wrexham striker Matt Derbyshire, who is currently enjoying a very profitable loan from Blackburn, admits he is unsure for how long he will remain at The Racecourse Ground.
The former Great Harwood Town player scored his eighth goal in eight games when he netted twice in The Dragons' 2-2 draw at Cheltenham on Tuesday.
Derbyshire's goals have been fundamental to Wrexham's rise into League Two play-off contention and manager Denis Smith has already expressed his admiration of the young forward.
Derbyshire admits he has benefited hugely from an extended run of first team football but is taking the fledgling stages of his career step-by-step.
"To be truthful, I don't really know whether my loan agreement will be extended here should the club make it into the play-offs," said Derbyshire.
"I didn't come on a deal until the end of the season, I came on a month to month agreement. I signed for another month recently and that expires on April 14, which is my birthday.
"Right now, I am just delighted to be playing first team football and I would like to thank Denis Smith for giving me that opportunity, and also for all the help and encouragement that he gives me.
"The goals are a bonus for me and, of course, they help with confidence. So I will just take everything month by month."
