Lambert pleased with Villa spirit for West Ham point

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert was pleased with the point earned at West Ham United.

Lambert was pleased with his side's fighting spirit which saw Christian Benteke hit the post with a header and go close with a shot just deflected wide.

"It was a big performance," said Lambert after the 0-0 result.

"We were missing a couple of big players. I don't think West Ham had many chances to score a goal. The lads at the back put in their heads when it mattered and blocked when it mattered and along with goalkeeper Brad Guzan I thought they were all excellent."
