Jol pleased with Villa point

Fulham manager Martin Jol said he was a 'happy customer' after his side picked up a share of the spoils at Aston Villa which moved them onto the 40-point mark for the season.

Charles N'Zogbia put Villa in front when he bent a shot into the top left hand corner, but Fabian Delph flicked a header into his own goal to gift the west Londoners a point.

However, Jol admitted Paul Lambert's men were the better side on the day and was pleased to come away with a draw.

"First I'm pleased because I thought they looked the better team," the Dutchman told Sky Sports. "We were hot and cold today. We had good possession and then we were sloppy again, so we made them stronger.

"If you look at them over the last three to four weeks they have had three wins and one defeat, so I think they did ever so well.

"They press you, they're strong, they've got strong runners, so I think in the end to get a draw at Villa Park where last year we lost in the dying seconds is good.

"To be at 40 points as well makes me a happy customer."

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
