Lowton hopeful of improvement

Aston Villa defender Matt Lowton is confident the club's fortunes away from home will improve if they keep doing what they have been doing.

Villa are yet to win on the road in the Premier League this season, and Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Fulham was their fourth in five outings to date.

Lowton told the club's official website: "We have to keep our belief. We are not playing badly. We have had very tough away games - St James' Park, White Hart Lane and Craven Cottage. We have gone to those places and played very well.

"It took a fantastic goal at Newcastle to peg us back. We should have gone ahead arguably against Tottenham, and we were fantastic up until 84 minutes against Fulham.

"It's tough to take because the performances are there. We are just not getting the results.

"Hopefully at home against Norwich (on Saturday), we can get the crowd right behind us and get at them from the off. We were fantastic at home against Swansea, so there's no reason why we can't replicate that."
