Aston Villa defender Matthew Lowton has implored the club to not go into its shell ahead of a very important run-in to the Premier League season.

Villa currently find themselves sitting 17th on the table with 11 matches remaining and Lowton wants action in regard to avoiding the drop down to the Championship.

"We can't have any regrets," Lowton told the Express and Star. "There is no point in looking back now.

"There are 11 massive games from now to the end of the season and we've got to make sure we get out of the blocks and get ahead and we have to be strong enough to go on and get the wins.

"We've been together two thirds of a season now and we've looked better the last few games. We know we're the only team that can get us out of it – we can't rely on other teams to lose points.

"We've got to pick up points and we have a lot of chances still to make sure we do that. We have pace and power in our team and, if we get it together, we can put together the results we need."
