We Deserved The Albion Victory
Manager Mauricio Pochettino has said he felt that Southampton definitely deserved the three points from the West Bromwich Albion game yesterday.
The gaffer was also very pleased to see us pick up a league win on home soil for the first time since last November as well, because it's been obvious he's wanted us to kick on again and improve our form for a while and thankfully Adam Lallana's solitary strike was enough to do that.
Speaking to saintsfc following the win, the gaffer explained.
'It was a great victory today against a tough side who have actually been playing quite well in the last few games. It's a good way to get a good run started. We have been working ever so hard to get back to winning ways, and ~I think we have recovered the winning spirit that we had at the start of the season.'
Of course, with performances not really being that bad of late, it's just been the results that have been the problem, but with the natural confidence lift that this victory will have given them, hopefully we can at least get ourselves on an unbeaten run if not straight victories for a few games, to really lift things.
Pochettino went on to say that Southampton had to be patient in the game and wait for the chance to come along, but he adds that whilst the teams were level he thought the fans were fantastic in their support and their efforts to keep driving the lads on, and everybody appreciated that, especially as it has been a tough time over the Christmas period.
Onto Sunderland now with another good week of training, and hopefully another three points at the Stadium of Light.
