BBC Sport - Aston Villa 0-0 Sunderland: Paul Lambert hails Villa steel

Lambert praises Villa's 'commitment'

Manager Paul Lambert praises Aston Villa's "great commitment" in earning a 0-0 home draw against Sunderland despite playing most of the second half with 10 men.

Lambert describes the match - which saw Fabian Delph dismissed at the start of the second half - as "really, really tough" after "two games in three days".

The clean sheet is Villa's first at Villa Park since their opening home game of the season, and keeps them in 13th place.
