Lowton told international recognition "entirely in his own hands"


Brown

Paul Lambert has urged Matt Lowton to continue his rapid top-flight ascent.

Lowton has been an ever-present this season and Lambert says his performances have been immensely consistent all term.

Lambert hailed Lowton as the man-of-the-match "by a mile" against Sunderland as he hit top-form against the Black Cats.

But Villa boss Lambert wants that level of performance to continue over the next few years, rather than the next few weeks or months.

He said: "I am pretty sure the praise he's getting is terrific for Matty himself.

"But the most important thing is you don't rest on that.

"He's been here for less than a season. It's important you do that 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."

Asked whether England recognition could come, Lambert added: "It's entirely in his own hands.

"His performances over the course of the year have been consistently high.

"I thought the other night he was outstanding. He was man of the match by a mile.

"We got him for a million pounds or whatever it was and he's been excellent."
