Matthew Lowton: Paul Lambert confident he can progress further

Matthew Lowton: Paul Lambert confident he can progress further

Lowton helped lead Villa to Premier League safety, scoring the club's goal of the season in a vital 3-1 win against Stoke in April.

And Lambert believes the 24-year-old defender is only going to get better, providing he doesn't rest on his laurels.

"I am pretty sure the praise he's been getting is terrific for Matty himself," said Villa boss Lambert.

"But the most important thing is you don't rest on that. It's important you do it year after year.

"Once you start to do that, make a right name for yourself and start to win things and start to progress your career, then people can say things.

"He's an unassuming young lad. He's fitted in really well. You know what you're going to get with Matty with his consistent performances."

Asked whether Lowton would earn an England call-up in the future, Lambert added: "It's entirely in his own hands.

"His performances over the course of the year have been consistently high. We got him for a million pounds or whatever it was and he's been excellent."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
