Wolves winger Kightly excited about Villa clash

Wolves winger Michael Kightly is excited about facing Aston Villa for the first time today.

Kightly, 23, faces Villa at Molineux today in his first Premier League derby. And the ex-Grays part-timer has been flooded with requests for tickets.

He said: "Our big derby was against Dagenham & Redbridge and the crowd for that might have been a couple of thousand people.

"This is a massive jump up from what I've been used to and I'm getting a few texts from pals saying they want tickets for Saturday. At Grays, that was an easy thing to sort out.

"The Conference and the Premier League are a million miles apart. We had to clean our boots and wash our kit, but it made me a better person and a player.

"My aim is to be a Premier League player and I'd never have said that three years ago."
