Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish was pleased with Charles N'Zogbia's performance in their Carling Cup defeat to Bolton Wanderers.

The major plus point for McLeish was the display of substitute N'Zogbia, who has struggled to show his best form since moving from Wigan during the summer.

McLeish said: "Charles came on and I thought he looked bright. We saw some end product from him, some good delivery.

"Charles just needed a wee break to think about things as well and he came on and gave us a great reaction."
