Alex McLeish hailed the performance of fit-again Aston Villa captain Richard Dunne as his side earned a valuable point in their battle against relegation at local rivals West Brom.

McLeish said: "Richard is a leader, a leader by example. We took a calculated gamble. Richard told me if I needed him, he was good to go.
