Villa ace Holman: Scoring duck not weighing me down

Aston Villa midfielder Brett Holman insists he's not bothered about not yet breaking his duck.

The 28-year-old playmaker is not unduly worried about his failure to get his name on the scoresheet having featured in all six of Villa's Premier League games so far.

"I'm not a player who keeps stats in my head. I do my work and create chances for other players," explained Holman.

"But I also try to pitch in with a goal. I scored two in pre-season and hopefully there are a few more to come. I want to get off my 'duck' but I'm not consciously thinking about it.

"You don't want to be worrying about that because your whole game will fall to pieces."
