Perez Pleased With Professional Yeovil Display

Perez Pleased With Professional Yeovil Display

Assistant manager Jesus Perez hailed our two goalscorers on the day as Southampton battled past Yeovil to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Speaking to saintsfc following the two nil victory, Perez paid special credit to Guly Do Prado and Sam Gallagher for getting the goals that put us through to the next round.

Following his injury troubles, Do Prado stepped up to the penalty spot and scored his first Saints goal in over two years, and then youngster Gallagher, who came on the pitch in place of Guly, grabbed the all important second of the day when he scored his first ever goal for the club.

'I think for Guly the most important thing was to play 50-55 minutes after a long time out for injury. He took the responsibility of the penalty and he scored which was good for him, but better for the squad.'

Perez goes on to say that the opening goal did change the dynamic of the game as Yeovil were really battling hard, but once we took the lead it did swing in our favour a bit more - especially in the second half where we created more chances and proved that we should've won the game.

'We are delighted with the goal Sam scored. He has been involved with the first team a lot in training, but now he is starting to appear in games and we think he has a great future in front of him. He's starting to show his quality.'

Perez was also full of credit for the effort that Yeovil put in on the day, as they did make a good game of it, and we could well have been in trouble early on.

'They started the game with clinical situations and had chances to score. We definitely needed the second goal to close out the game, if we hadn't got the second goal I am sure that we would've suffered towards the end of the game because at set plays the game is very open.'

The draw for the fifth round takes place tomorrow and Perez adds that although he doesn't mind who we draw, he does hope we get another tie at St Mary's.
