First goal was Vital

First goal was Vital

SAINTS boss George Burley felt that the first goal today was vital for Southampton to go on to win the match.

Speaking to the official site Burley said: 'When you come to grounds like this where conditions are tricky then the first goal is vital - and thankfully we got it.

'We started brightly and had a few chances but the goal would not come and then they came back into it. But once we went in front I always felt we would go on and win.

'It was David against Goliath but thankfully we made sure there was no upset here. Grzegorz is a natural goalscorer and you need that in your side. He has been consistent all season and has a great record.
