Maloney: First Villa Goal
Aston Villa new boy Shaun Maloney was pleased to have scored his first goal for the club, a delightful curling free kick, however he doesn't believe that he has done enough to earn a place in the starting 11...yet.
Maloney, speaking to the official website said: 'I haven't really thought too much about the first goal, but I went close with a free-kick against Portsmouth and it was nice to get it out of the way.
'The fans have been great and have really welcomed me. I haven't really set the world alight yet, but they've taken to me and that's appreciated.
'I want to start games, but if I'm honest I haven't deserved to start recently. I haven't been playing that great.
'But if I do come on as a substitute, I need to do more of that. Then I can push for getting a spot in the starting 11.'
He's certainly not a bad little player to bring off the bench, especially if he can continue to make that kind of quick impact!
