Villa fullback Lowton proud of stunning goal

Aston Villa fullback Matt Lowton was proud of his screamer in victory at Stoke City.

Lowton scored a similarly spectacular goal in the win at Swansea last September but he had no doubt his latest effort eclipsed that.

He said: "It was nice. The one against Swansea earlier in the season was fantastic as well, obviously, but it has always been in the back of my mind that the keeper did me a favour diving out of the way.

"It is nice that he went for it and it actually beat him this time.

"I was concentrating on my first touch but as soon as it sat up like it did it needed hitting really, and luckily it flew into the back of the net."
