Lambert praises 'excellent' Villa

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert says his side were "excellent" after coming from behind to beat Queens Park Rangers in a vital game at the bottom of the Premier League.

Jermaine Jenas gave QPR the lead in the first half but Gabriel Agbonlahor snatched an equaliser before Andreas Weimann put Villa. Andros Townsend's deflected effort levelled the game, but Christian Benteke then slotted a vital winner.

The win moves Villa six points clear of the relegation zone and is the first time that the side have recorded back-to-back victories since May 2011.
