Aston Villa defender Curtis Davies admits he endured a nightmare debut in last night's Carling Cup defeat at home to Leicester City.

Davies, who was substituted with 10 minutes remaining, said: "I was just awful. I didn't contribute anything.

"I've been bigging myself up, saying I'm ready and obviously I'm not. I'm not good enough to get in the team yet.

"I'm honest with myself in every performance and that was rubbish - I looked like a pub team player."
