Paul Lambert has admitted neither side did enough to win as Aston Villa drew 0-0 with Hull City at the KC Stadium on Saturday.
“I don’t think either team did enough to win it,” Lambert was quoted as saying by the Birmingham Mail. “From my point of view we had the lions share of possession with the ball.
“I was told that we had 75 per-cent of possession in the first half an hour.
“For an away team in this league, that’s a vast amount.
“I never thought we were going to win it, but equally I never thought we was going to lose it."
Villa, 10th in the Premier League after yesterday's result, struggled in front of goal without top scorer Christian Benteke.
However, the visitors did have the best chance of the match, but Gabriel Abgonlahor couldn't find the net from 12 yards out.
Steve Bruce's Hull will also be content with a point as they extended their unbeaten home record.
“If we’re been honest, it was bang average,” Bruce commented. “We’ve played really well over the last few weeks but we haven’t played well today and still we have got something from the game which we are delighted about.
“To get a 0-0 is terrific when we played like that.
“There will be times we play badly and get nothing so we have to remind ourselves that."
The Tigers fans will be equally happy with their start to the season as they remain above Manchester United, seven games into the new campaign.
