Ashley Westwood is delighted to now be starting games for Aston Villa.

He had to settle for two substitute appearances before his first full game against Sunderland and then against Manchester United.

But he was always confident he could make a big impact when handed an opportunity.

He told Villa's website: "I have faith in my own ability. I've been brought up in the right way at Crewe and I think that's starting to show here at Villa."
