Tyias' First-Team Target

by Adam Clark
@Everton

Derby debutant Tyias Browning hopes his eye-catching Anfield cameo will be the first of many performances in the royal blue of Everton.

Browning, 20, stepped off the bench on 73 minutes to make his first competitive appearance for the Club, replacing veteran Tony Hibbert at right-back.

The youngster duly delivered an assured performance up against the jet-heeled Raheem Sterling and also produced the centre that ultimately led to Phil Jagielka's dramatic 91st-minute leveller.

And, speaking exclusively to evertontv, Browning said: "It's taken me 10 years to get to this day. Hopefully there'll be many more [games] to come now.

"I was pleased with myself and hopefully I did enough to get selected again.

"I just need to wait for my next opportunity now and hopefully take it when it comes."

Emerging from the bench with his side 1-0 down, Browning admits he was shocked when the order came through to ready himself for action.

He said: "When I was told I was going on, it was nerves more than anything. It was a big game to come into but I thought I did well and it was a good result for us in the end.

"Obviously he [Roberto Martinez] knew it was an important game, as do the fans. I was just pleased that he trusted me to come on and do a job.
 
"He told me to attack and try to score a goal, but to be aware of the counter-attack.

"Sterling is one of the quickest players I've played against but I thought I did okay."
