Villa fullback Lowton: I haven't been good enough

Aston Villa fullback Matt Lowton accepts he must do better this season.

Lowton has started just six games this term and been replaced by the in-form Leandro Bacuna.

"I'm not trying to say I was dreadful, but the standards I set last season were sky-high," said the 24-year-old.

"I said to myself I don't want to fall below those standards, but I've been at fault for a few goals this season and it's not good enough.

"We want to be a team that's pushing on in the top half of the league and we're not going to get that if people are not doing their jobs right."
