Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert saw his side surrender a two-goal lead at West Brom and admitted: "We should have been out of sight at half-time."

Goals from Christian Benteke - his 10th of the season - and Gabriel Agbonlahor gave Villa a clear advantage at the interval, but they were left to regret spurning other chances as Albion hit back to rescue a 2-2 draw through goals from Chris Brunt and Peter Odemwingie.

Lambert said: "I have a few things going through my head. I thought we were excellent in the first-half. We should have been out of sight, it should have been finished. We should have been four up. That would have killed the game. The way we played in the first-half was excellent."
