Check out the highlights package on AVTV.

So sit back, crack open a drink and watch Lowton's howitzer over and over again.

It was such an important goal in the context of the game and also the season as a whole.

First, watch Gabby Agbonlahor give Villa an early lead, stabbing home the ball after great build-up play down the right by full-back Lowton.

Then check out several other chances go begging, Andreas Weimann slamming a fierce shot against the post and Jordan Bowery firing straight at the in-form Asmir Begovic.

At that point, Villa were searching for a second to see the game out, in the knowledge that a goal for the home side - clearly against the run of play - would spark the contest back into life.

That came late on with Michael Kightly finishing smartly past Brad Guzan.

Villa were rattled but they came roaring back with the glory goal from Lowton and a fine finish from Christian Benteke at the death to seal the contest.

Lowton's goal breathed life into the game for Villa and also gave them a fighting chance of surging up the top-flight table in the remaining weeks of the season.

It also clearly dragged the Potters back into the dogfight.

Watch all the moments that mattered now.
