James Wilson desperate for Man Utd debut

Manchester United striker James Wilson is hoping for a Premier League debut before the season concludes.

Wilson made the bench last month at Newcastle United.

Wilson told Inside United: "Hopefully it [my debut] is not too far off," he admitted. "It would be great and it's what you work towards. Every time, I just think: 'I could be in that first team'.

"It would be great to get a few minutes on the pitch and a real experience to see how different the games are and the pace of it. I need to see how I deal with the atmosphere, the pressure and other factors.

"It was great experience being with the team [at St James' Park] and learning how to act around the hotel by being professional. Even the warm-up was different - I was out there with Nemanja Vidic and Tom Cleverley.

"When you're warming up for the Reserves, there are not usually thousands of people around. It was a great atmosphere - even when you're out there beforehand, the ground is filling up and you can feel the volume rising."
