Liptak continues to impress
Hungarian defender Zoltan Liptak continues to impress for Southampton reserves.
The Saints beat Lewes 2-0 at Staplewood last night and Assistant First Team Coach Dean Gorre believes it was Liptak who made the difference for the Saints.
"Zoltan was for me, the best player on the pitch. He was what you expect from a centre back - he was solid, ruling in the air and looked like a real asset for the club."
Simon Gillett's 25 yard wonder strike and Joseph Mills' half volley won the match for the Saints in the second half, but Liptak's involvement was more encouraging.
Last night's victory was Gorre's first game in charge of the reserves and he explained his role within the team.
"Mark Wotte and I do the reserves as much as we can if we can get the timing right with the first team. The first team is most important and then we try to do as much as we can with the reserves.
"We really don't have a reserve team because everybody is in a whole group and that's how we train and from that we choose who plays in the first team."
