Lowton revels in wonder goal

7 April 2013 08:05

Aston Villa full-back Matthew Lowton expressed delight after his wonder goal helped his side to a 3-1 win over Stoke on Saturday.

The defender's 30-yard volley, only his second goal of the season, put Villa back in the lead just minutes after Michael Kightly had equalised for Stoke.

Christian Benteke added a third goal late on to give Paul Lambert's side a vital three points.

"It was fantastic to see it hit the back of the net," the jubilant Lowton told Sky Sports.

"At the corner I just thought I would ring the box and if anything comes then I will help it back in. But after I've had my first touch and it sat up like it did, I thought why not hit it. Luckily it has flown in the back of the net.

The win was Villa's third in four games in the league and has dragged the strugglers out of the relegation zone.

Lambert's side are just four points behind 12th-placed Southampton, with several teams still able to join QPR and Reading in the relegation places.

Lowton continued: "Teams are getting dragged in as well and it's nice to see a few more teams below us.

"We have got to keep our feet on the ground as there are a lot more points still to play for. We just need to make sure we get enough."
