Aston Villa boss Smith tips Targett for England call

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith has tipped Matt Targett for an England call.

England coach Gareth Southgate saw Villa's win at Leeds yesterday.

Smith said: "Yeah, I think he'd have been impressed but I think he would have been impressed with Matt Targett, the left-back, who's having a fantastic season.

"There were some really good performances out there today. I wanted to start with an intensity.

"I didn't feel we've done that in the last two games against Brighton and Leicester but we've done that (against Leeds) and we've got a very hard-fought victory."
