Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert described his side's 2-2 draw at Swansea as a huge point, despite seeing them denied all three by Danny Graham's injury-time equaliser.

The Villans had conceded 15 and scored none in their previous three games.

A point at least ends Villa's miserable run of defeats and, Lambert feels he can take great heart from a gutsy effort by a side with an average age of just 23 years and 119 days.

Lambert said: "We have been beaten heavily in the last three games so this is a huge point for the future of the club.

"The young lads in the side have been excellent and when you get beaten heavily you learn a lot about people and today showed they are mentally strong."
