Matt Lowton spent much of his 2014-15 season on the bench.

There were, however, sporadic spells of time on the pitch for the claret and blues.

Lowton didn't feature in any of the first five games of the campaign before being named as one of seven subs for the home game with Arsenal.

He missed out for the next two matches before again being named on the bench for the defeat away at Everton.

Lowton started the next three matches - defeats to QPR and Tottenham and a draw with West Ham.

He came on for the 1-1 draw away at Burnley and in between several unused sub appearances, he started the 1-1 home draw with Man Utd.

Later on in the campaign, he started another trio of games in succession - all victories.

They were the derby double over West Brom in the Barclays Premier League and FA Cup and the 4-0 away victory over Sunderland.

He then missed the 1-0 home loss to Swansea before being back in the starting XI for the 3-1 away defeat to Man Utd.

Lowton had several other sub appearances for Villa before the end of the campaign.

Lowton joined Villa from Sheff Utd in July 2012.

He arrived at the club just a few days after Moroccan international Karim El Ahmadi as manager Paul Lambert's squad began to take shape ahead of the 2012-13 campaign.

He enjoyed a fine spell in his first campaign and scored two blistering goals - at home to Swansea in a 2-0 win and at Stoke in a 3-1 victory.

Lowton didn't feature as much in 2013-14 as Leandro Bacuna battled hard with him for the right-back berth.

Lowton was a product of the Blades academy and also enjoyed loan spells at non-league outfit Sheffield FC and Hungarian team Ferencvaros.
