Villa v Fulham: Lambert encouraged by Bowery progress


Harrison

Paul Lambert has urged Jordan Bowery to build on his encouraging display against Stoke after hailing the forward's potential.

Bowery was handed a surprise start - only his third since joining from Chesterfield in August - in last Saturday's 3-1 win at the Britannia Stadium.

And the 21-year-old repaid Lambert's faith by producing a lively performance.

As well as playing a big part in the build-up to Gabby Agbonlahor's opening goal, he went close with two opportunities of his own.

In the first half Bowery brushed the side-netting with a 25-yard shot and after the break he forced Stoke goalkeeper Asmir Begovic into a fine near-post save.

Lambert was impressed with Bowery's efforts on the right hand side of Villa's four-pronged attack.

"I get great satisfaction seeing footballers doing well, it's never about myself," said the Villa boss.

"Jordan was excellent at Stoke. He hasn't played for a long time. He's a young lad, but he's another one who has got a lot of potential.

"I thought he was outstanding on the right side for us. He did brilliantly for the first goal with Matty Lowton. His general performance was excellent.

"He was a threat during the time he was on and one bit of skill was outstanding."
