Matthew Lowton says that he and his relegation-threatened Aston Villa teammates are full of confidence going into the tail end of the Premier League season, according to Sky
The right-back’s wonder goal helped Paul Lambert’s side to a 3-1 victory over Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday – a win which lifted Villa to 16th in the table.
And though Villa remain only two points above the drop zone, Lowton believes their recent form, which has seen them win three of their last four fixtures, gives them the momentum in the survival battle.
Lowton said: “The confidence is sky high at the minute. The manager is buzzing in the changing rooms after games.
“We’ve got huge momentum now. We’ve dragged people in. We’ve overtaken a few who are yet to play so the pressure is back on them.”
The 23-year-old has been thrown in to the deep end in his first Premier League season, playing every league match under Lambert since his transfer from Sheffield United in the summer.
The Villains face Fulham at home on Saturday, where another win will move them to 36 points – potentially five points clear of the bottom three.
