Villa youngster Derrick Williams thrilled with Premier League debut

Aston Villa defender Derrick Williams was delighted with his Premier League debut in their draw at QPR.

Williams went into the action as a second half substitute for Chris Herd and slotted in wonderfully at left-back.

He told Villa's website: "It was good. I really enjoyed it.

"I didn't know what to feel. When the gaffer said my name I was nervous, excited, scared...everything.

"When I got out on the pitch though I felt comfortable. It was a great feeling.

"And it was obviously good to get a positive result. It was a good atmosphere too. The crowd feel right on top of you at Loftus Road. But it was good to hold out for the point."
