Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert was unhappy with the sending-off of defender Joe Bennett as his former side Norwich hit back to earn a point from a 1-1 draw at Villa Park.

Villa went ahead through Christian Benteke but Bennett was sent off early in the second period for a second bookable offence after a foul on Elliott Bennett and then Michael Turner rescued a share of the spoils for Chris Hughton's side with a late equaliser.

"I think the sending off changed a lot. That changed the game. At first thought I thought it was a sending off, because when you commit a foul and you go to do something, then you put yourself in a position where you can get the red," said Lambert, "But, looking at it again, I think Elliott, too, has had hold of Joe."
