Lowton issues rallying cry ahead of huge game for Aston Villa

Aston Villa defender Matt Lowton has suggested Aston Villa's advantage against QPR tomorrow will be the fans.

Aston Villa defender Matt Lowton told the club’s website he feels the atmosphere at Villa Park will be the difference against QPR tomorrow night.

Villa go into the game against their relegation rivals under pressure after a heavy defeat at the hands of Manchester United over Easter weekend.

However, the side are still two points above the bottom three and Tim Sherwood has created a positive culture, which should give the side the best possible chance of avoiding the drop.

“It will be rocking at Villa Park on Tuesday. It will under the floodlights. And I am sure the fans will come in their numbers to get right behind us,” said Lowton.

“West Brom was a huge game under the lights. We want to go in there this week with the same attitude and get the same result.”

Villa fans are the same as the majority of other supporters all over the world; all they want to see is complete passion and commitment from the players.

Sherwood won’t allow the side to show any less, which should work positively in their favour tomorrow.

If the fans see a committed set of players, the volume levels will increase and the players should have a spring in their step because of the atmosphere.

The defeat against United over the weekend showed the difficulty Villa face against some sides away from home, which increases the importance of the side winning their remaining home games this season.

A win puts Villa onto 31 point and moves the side further away from the bottom three while QPR’s incentive is to draw level on points with Sherwood’s side.
