Villa boss Lambert feels point gained after Fulham draw

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert was pleased with the point after their 1-1 draw with Fulham.

After the impressive Charles N'Zogbia gave Villa a deserved 55th-minute lead, the visitors were gifted an equaliser when midfielder Fabian Delph flicked Bryan Ruiz's corner into his own net with a header 11 minutes later.

"We played really well," he said. "I have got nothing but praise for the performance. We played really well and got a draw. That point could be massive. We're pulling teams right into it. I'm not too disappointed at all with the performance.

"Is it a point gained? Yes, absolutely. It was not long ago Fulham went to White Hart Lane and turned over Tottenham, a right top side. They don't get credit they deserve.

"They have got some terrific players. But some of the chances we created were excellent. I am sitting here and the point could be huge for us.

"A few games ago there weren't as many teams in the fight as there is now. There is a right cluster there."
