ASTON Villa boss Paul Lambert, who had midfielder Fabien Delph sent off early in the second half, was pleased with his men’s resilience in today’s 0-0 draw at home to Sunderland.

The Scot said “I’m satisfied with a point under the circumstances. It’s hard enough playing against 10 men any time but with two games in two days the lads were running on empty.

“All credit to the lads, we could have won it and had chances at the end.”
