Albrighton: Villa fight-back against Wolves great team effort

Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton insists they did well to fight back for their 2-2 draw with Wolves.

Albrighton was part of Villa's late comeback after coming on in the second-half prior to John Carew's equaliser.

He told AVTV: "It was a hard-fought point and a draw was better than a loss at the end of the day. I think we worked hard for it.

"I had one ball I put in on John Carew's head but it was hard to get past the full-back and get crosses in.

"After they went 2-1 up they put everyone behind the ball, battled hard and went defensive, so it was hard for us to break them down.

"It was a great team effort and Steve Sidwell did brilliantly for the goal when he came on and John finished it off brilliantly."
