Aston Villa captain Stiliyan Petrov was delighted for Charles N'Zogbia over his performance in the draw with Blackburn Rovers.

N'Zogbia struck Villa's goal in the 1-1 draw.

Petrov said: "He’s motivated to go and show what he’s all about.

"He went through a tough period but he’s a strong character. Some people need longer to settle and some need shorter. Maybe it took him longer to settle down but he’s finally starting to show what he’s all about.

"He’s certainly a good lad, he’s great to have around. We know what kind of lad he is, it has been frustrating for him that he couldn’t show what he can do. But now finally he can show it.

"He’s scoring goals and when you start scoring goals that is where the confidence comes."
