Manchester City and England goalkeeper Joe Hart says worries over security at football games following the recent Paris attacks will not affect him.

"My job is to think about playing the game and it's other people's jobs to look after that side of it," he told BBC World Football. "You hope the measures that need to be taken are being taken."

Wolves' Grant Holt says he is not bothered at the prospect of 'getting stick' when the former Norwich City striker visits Ipswich this weekend. 

The much-travelled 34-year-old, on a two-month loan from Wigan Athletic, has never lost at Portman Road - and was part of a 5-1-winning team on his last visit with the Canaries in 2010. 

"I probably won't get the warmest welcome but that's football," he said. 

"I haven't lost there and I actually enjoy being the old pantomime villain."

Mark Footitt's former club Derbyshire deserve credit for his inclusion in England's squad to tour South Africa, says elite performance director Graeme Welch.

The left-armer took 76 Championship wickets in 2015 before leaving the county to join Surrey.

"Realistically, that is a feather in our cap more than Surrey's," Welch told BBC Radio Derby.
