Reading midfielder Danny Williams labelled the Championship the "toughest division in the world" after helping his side to a draw at Derby.

USA international Williams netted an equaliser in the Royals' 1-1 draw against the Rams on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old said the draw was a vital point in amongst three away games in the space of a week.

"These long away trips are why I spend most of my time asleep on the coach," he told BBC Radio Berkshire.

"This is the toughest division in the world," he added. "People don't believe that when I tell them.

"But when you get the results among three long away trips, it makes the week a bit sweeter."

Williams scored his fifth league goal of the season at Derby, following Jason Shackell's opener for the hosts.

"We knew before the game that Derby have a lot of quality, so we would have to work hard to keep them quiet," Williams said.

"We conceded from a set-piece, but after that we looked very good."
