Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert was pleased with his players after their 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

Darren Bent came off the bench to cancel out Shane Long's opener for the Baggies.

He said: "I think it was harsh going behind, especially after the first half.

"The goalkeeper (Ben Foster) has made two world-class saves and when you go behind, especially in a derby, it puts you on the back foot.

"I thought the response was great, especially after playing 120 minutes on Tuesday. It was a big, big ask but the response was excellent."
