Lowton hopeful of improvement
Aston Villa defender Matt Lowton is confident the club’s
fortunes away from home will improve if they keep doing what they
have been doing.
Villa are yet to win on the road in the Premier League this
season, and Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Fulham was their fourth in
five outings to date.
Lowton told the club’s official website: “We have to keep our
belief. We are not playing badly. We have had very tough away games
– St James’ Park, White Hart Lane and Craven Cottage. We have gone
to those places and played very well.
“It took a fantastic goal at Newcastle to peg us back. We should
have gone ahead arguably against Tottenham, and we were fantastic
up until 84 minutes against Fulham.
“It’s tough to take because the performances are there. We are
just not getting the results.
“Hopefully at home against Norwich (on Saturday), we can get the
crowd right behind us and get at them from the off. We were
fantastic at home against Swansea, so there’s no reason why we
can’t replicate that.”
