Aston Villa defender Matt Lowton insists that his side have enough belief and ability to beat the drop during the final eight games.
The 23-year-old joined Paul Lambert’s side during the summer from League One outfit Sheffield United and although he may not have expected to play a key role for the club in his first campaign, he has been involved in almost every game.
The Midlands club recorded back-to-back league wins before the international break for the first time since May 2011 and the former Blades man believes that could provide a catalyst to push them away from the drop zone.
The Villans take on Liverpool on Sunday looking to secure a double over the Merseyside club this term after winning 3-1 at Anfield.
“It’s been a roller-coaster, but we knew it would be at the start of the season,” said Lowton
“There are a lot of young lads, new players with a new management coming together.
“We have shown we can stick together and fight and we have to do that in the remaining games.”
