Lowton Picks Out The Highs

Many fans man of the match against Sunderland has talked about his performance and that of Yacouba Sylla.

Speaking to the Official Site with preparations go for Norwich, Lowton allowed himself a look back at our last game...well can you blame him!

Firstly he talked about the one change - Yacouba Sylla.

'You maybe don't see it but I was playing behind him and can see the amount of times he cuts passing lines off to the winger and things like that to stop attacks happening. He wins fantastic tackles and gets us back on the attack. It was the one change against Sunderland and it definitely worked.'

As for his own performance, especially the interception and crossfield pass for Andi Weimann's goal that (excuse me at this time of the morning) left everybody a little bit wet, Lowton said.

'I saw it develop in the middle of the pitch - they switched it and I half gambled on what they were going to do. I intercepted it and as I was running through I'd got a million things going through my head. I saw a great run from Christian to take the defenders away then Andi was in at the back post so I tried to clip it to him.'

Lowton says that as soon as he hit it he thought he had overhit the pass, but Weimann was quick enough to adjust for that, his touch was sublime and the crowd jumped to their feet.

Pleasingly Lowton admits that the team went in at half time buzzing, but they all knew they had been here before and blown it, so the decision was taken...

'We knew full well we've done that a few times and not come out of the blocks for the second half. So we spoke and said we need to keep attacking and don't sit back. It worked out fine.'

Please, please, please have learnt that particular lesson, if we'd have come out at teams and gone straight at them again and not let them get in the rhythm to attack us after rallying at half time how many more games would we have taken maximum points from?

I'd love to say 6-1 should be the standard for the rest of the season, but that performance, that physical and mental application to not only keep going but more importantly really keep going at them has to be the standard now. We've proven plenty of times we are capable of it, and against Sunderland we proved we could maintain it.

Therefore that is the benchmark.

Play like that against Norwich and whilst we might not score another 6, the odds of the result going our way have got to improve by over double.

Class act from our Matty, and yes, our Sylla is settling in nicely and put in a good performance on Monday evening. Keep it up Yac.

The major thing now the Villa players know they have to go out and give there all, no passengers, the work rate and effort is excellent, Lambert has said they are not the finished article so I'm sure he and his staff will continue to develop this young squad and add new faces where required.

One of the nicest bonuses about Matthew Lowton is that he is so natural and modest. What a refreshing change from some of the arrogance we see in Prem footballers - he's a breath of fresh air in interviews.
