Aussie ace's Villa goals aim

Brett Holman is hoping his first goal for Aston Villa will now see him add a few more to his tally in the Premier League this season.

The Australia international fired in an eighth minute strike to give Villa the lead in their basement battle at QPR on Saturday to finally get off the mark for the Midlands outfit following his summer move.

Jamie Mackie equalised 10 minutes later as the two sides shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw, but Holman is hoping that his first goal will alleviate some of the pressure on him to go on and contribute several more this season.

He told the club's website: "You don't want to really concentrate on goals because your strikers obviously are the main people who will score. But it's always nice to chip in and grab a couple.

"Attacking players always want to hit the net and it gives you great confidence.

"I've scored goals for every club I've been with. Ratio-wise I wouldn't have a clue what my stats are but I have certainly scored for all my teams.

"I think as an attacking player I've always pitched in with goals. I'm happy with what I've done at previous clubs and hopefully I can get a few more for this club."
