'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Nigel Pleased With Saints Showing

The team played well for the entire game and showed a confidence and purpose which has not always been visible recently.

'I asked for positivity and it was everywhere today,' he told Saints Player. The crowd were great and the players were superb which got us the three points with a 2-0 victory.'

'It was another clean sheet on the back of the Birmingham game and we looked very resilient today. Kelvin has only had to make one long range save during a ten or fifteen minute spell when we had to defend, which we did very well. That was very pleasing and I am delighted that we have got the three points today.'

Whilst we are now almost back to full strength Nigel added that we should not think of the eleven who started as the squad's best team.

He said that we have a strong squad and you won't win anything with eleven players. He did admit that we had a strong team to start with and was especially pleased with the pairing up front of Lambert and Sharp.

The clean sheet pleased him and he was pleased to see that the whole team played as a unit for the entire game. The substitutions all seemed to come off and he felt that we are nearing our peak once more.

He said, 'I think all the players deserve great credit because they all did very well. They have to work hard at Southampton and they have put in a good shift here on a cold day, hopefully they entertained the supporters and got the three points which was what we wanted.'

Now we head to Upton Park for the showdown which could define the race for the title of champions. We could finish back on top of the table or further adrift which would possibly make it very hard for us in the run in.

Hopefully we will come away with at least a point.
