Lambert says Lowton can still improve

17 June 2013 16:20

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert believes defender Matthew Lowton can continue to improve after an impressive first season with the club.

Lowton was an integral part of the Villa team that narrowly avoided relegation last season thanks to a late run of positive results.

The full-back scored a wonderful long-range goal in a 3-1 win at Stoke in April and was a constant attacking threat for a side that was clinical in front of goal towards the end of the campaign.

And Lambert feels the 24-year-old can only get better with experience.

"I am pretty sure the praise he's been getting is terrific for Matty himself," the former Norwich boss told Villa's official website.

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

Lowton has not played for England at any level so far, but Lambert thinks the former Sheffield United man could earn an inbternational call-up if he maintains his high level of performance.

"It's (England selection) 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."
