Southampton Strikers Competing

Southampton Strikers Competing

Ricky Lambert notched his 26th goal for Southampton on saturday against Walsall. This strike came after Lee Barnard hit a brace for the second time in a week for the Saints. Now with 4 goals for the Saints, Barnard has notched 21 for the season in division one, as he hit 17 for Southend United.
On the OS Lee Barnard has admitted that the two strikers are now in competition to see who will end up as top striker in the division for the season. Lee said that he was pleased to have scored his first goals for the club and was now chasing Ricky to finish with more goals. He was pleased that he had been able to get a couple of tap-ins but enjoyed his second strike against Walsall as it was his best for the club so far. Hopefully I'll be able to keep pushing him till the end of the season He said.
Southampton are now blessed with three players who have been scoring frequently. Alongside Ricky 26 goals, Lee 21 goals, we also have Adam Lallana who has managed 14 so far this season. New boy Jason Puncheon is another who can score and Southampton are looking like a team that can score from anywhere.
'Our job is to attack and score goals' affirmed Lee. 'All of us scored which is nice and when teams come here or we go to their place they will know they are in for a tough game.'
All in all it is looking good for the attacking instincts that so many Saints fans have, Alan Pardew is now set up to be a manager who has goals and even more goals as his prime target. It does look as though we are about to go on an all out attack as we search for points.

I don't think Lee will catch Ricky this season. both will score goals and score them by the shedload. With us having goal scoring capabilities in several positions we are looking highly dangerous to all other teams.

Ricky is the leader of the line and helped make two of the goals on saturday. He will still score but Lee could sweep up some of Ricky's flick ons.

I reckon that they will both hit the target once tomorrow night. Hammond getting our third goal. Not necessarily in that order. It would be nice if we could keep a clean sheet but I fancy Huddersfield to score at least once. Two teams playing attacking football should lead to a very entertaining game. I hope it is and that we don't forget that we are going to win.
