Timed his dive at Agbonlahor's feet well in the first half, to not concede a penalty and to stop the Villa men scoring. Alert when needed to be.
Fairly solid game at center back however looked troubled by Agbonlahor's pace on the counter and was sometimes not best positioned for it.
Wasteful with the ball at his feet at times but did get his head on a number of crosses. Stood up Agbonlahor well. Nearly gifted Villa a goal when miss-communicated with his keeper, nearly won it late on.
Was very unlucky not to score when he saw his headed blocked off the line by Hutton's arm. Made some good interceptions at the back too.
Solid game defensively but gave little on the attack, worked hard and put himself about though.
Solid display, put a few good balls into the box, however sometimes slow to get back when Villa countered.
A poor touch denied brilliant late chance in the first half. Didn't threaten as much as Hodgson would have liked.
Mixed bag with deliveries, but caused problems with his left boot.
Dwelled on ball outside his area which nearly let Villa in and was wasteful with ball going forward. Replaced in the second half.
Made some good driving runs from deep and supported Odemwingie well, creating his good early chance. Replaced by Fortune midway through the second half.
Should have scored early on but his speed was always a threat. Went down easily when could have outpaced his man to get through on goal, denied by a goal-line clearance in the second half.
Was alert to produce an important early save from Odemwingie. Did what little there was to do well. Saved importantly and brilliantly from the same man twice late on.
Could have used the ball better when his side broke with space to exploit, however tracked back well. Had a great late chance to win it but couldn't beat the sea of defenders.
Played his first game in two and a half months and was a rock at the back, seemed to get his head on everything. Was threatened by the pace of Odemwingie at times though.
Sliced clearance nearly gifted Odemwingie an early opener however his keeper saved him, played second-string to Dunne with some questionable positioning as West Brom broke.
Was granted space to attack and carried the ball forward well at times, however like most of his side lacked cutting edge to find the final pass.
Very lucky to escape punishment when he appeared to handle Ridgewell's header on the line. Was quiet for most of the game and should have made more of space on the wing.
Got forward very well but displayed a mixed bag with his crossing. Blocked one off the line.
Got himself in good positions on the right-flank but he wasted most of the with a poor final delivery. However forced one good save from Foster with a volley, though he should have done better.
Made little influence going forward but kept the midfield ticking and tracked back well at times.
Wasted a golden chance when one-on-one with Foster after a poor touch allowed the keeper to clear the danger. His paced caused problems though and he created a good chances for N'Zogbia and Clark.
Could have done more in the opponent's box but was dominated by the West Brom defenders, however made some good clearances in his own area. Booked for a clumsy tackle. However did set up a good late chance for Clark.
