Wigan Athletic defender Andy Webster has spoken of his relief at finally making his Latics debut.

A dispute with former club Hearts delayed his JJB switch until September, leaving the Scotland international short of match fitness.

Webster finally made his debut as a second half substitute in Wigan's 4-0 win over Manchester City last week and the 24-year-old was delighted to be back on the pitch.

"It was just nice to get some football under my belt," he said.

"It's been a wee bit frustrating because of the injuries and it was just a great feeling to be back on a football field again."

Webster could now be in line to make his first start of the season against Fulham on Saturday, although he may have to be content for a place on Paul Jewell's substitutes' bench.
