Timed his dive at Agbonlahor's feet well in the first half to not concede a penalty and stop the Villa man scoring. Alert when needed.
Fairly solid game at centre-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 but nearly gifted Villa a goal due to a lack of communication with his keeper.
Was very unlucky not to score when he saw his header blocked on the line by Hutton's arm. Made some good interceptions at the back too.
Had a solid game defensively but gave little in attack. Worked hard and put himself about, though.
Put a few good balls into the box but was sometimes slow to get back when Villa countered.
A poor touch denied him a brilliant chance late in the first half. Did not threaten as much as Hodgson would have liked.
Mixed bag with deliveries but caused problems with a few shots.
Dwelled on ball outside his area which nearly let Villa in and was wasteful 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 he could have outpaced his man to get through on goal and was denied by a goal-line clearance in the second half.
Was alert to produce an important early save from Odemwingie and 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 but he tracked back well. Had a great late chance to win it but could not beat the sea of defenders.
Played his first game in two-and-a-half months and was a rock at the back, seeming to get his head on everything. Was threatened by the pace of Odemwingie at times though.
His sliced clearance nearly gifted Odemwingie an early opener before 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 the 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 wasted most of them with a poor final delivery. Forced one good save from Foster with a volley but he should have done better.
Had 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 opponents' box but was dominated by the West Brom defenders. Did make some good clearances in his own area but was booked for a particularly clumsy challenge.
