Derby County defender Efe Ambrose is eager to make his debut for the Rams in Saturday’s clash at home against relegation battlers Rotterham United who have Semi Ajayi in their ranks, Completesports.com reports.
Ambrose mutually terminated his contract with Scottish Premier League side Hibernian in January before completing his move to Derby in the English Championship side but he has failed to make the matchday squad for Frank Lampard’s side since he arrived.
“I’ve been working hard and patiently waiting for my chance to make my debut for the team,” Ambrose told Completesports.com.
“Hopefully, in our next game (vs Rotherham United) I could be in, you never know.”
“We still believe we can finish in a better position but we have to work harder and see off games well.”
Derby, with a game in hand, are 11 points off the promotion play-off spot in the English Championship this season.
The Nigeria international was also pleased to see the Super Eagles seal their Africa Cup of Nations qualifications on a winning note.
The Super beat Seychelles 3-1 to finish top of the group D with 13 points one ahead of South Africa who are second.
“The wins against Seychelles and Egypt were good for the team and they must build on this consistency,” Ambrose added.
