Michael Turner, centre, celebrates his equaliser

Norwich defender Michael Turner denied Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert victory against his former club with a late equaliser in a 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw at Villa Park.

Christian Benteke justified Lambert's decision to axe Darren Bent from his starting line-up for the third time in four matches with Villa's 27th-minute opener.

But Villa were forced to defend desperately after left-back Joe Bennett's sending-off early in the second period before Turner earned the Canaries a deserved share of the spoils.
