Ward-Prowse - Hit The Ground Running

Ward-Prowse - Hit The Ground Running

Midfielder James Ward-Prowse has been speaking of his confidence that Southampton will hit the ground running following the October international break.

Sitting in 12th place in the Premier League table with a return of eight points from our opening seven games, Ward-Prowse is hoping that with time to work on things on the training pitch, Southampton can now really get their season going this weekend.

Speaking to saintsfc with real football almost ready for a return, JWP explained that our start to the 2017/18 campaign had been frustrating, but now was the time to start putting it right.

'It`s still early on in the season and we have to keep taking the positives from the games we have played and try and work on that to help us in the long run. It feels like a different type of season. Last year was very difficult because of the Europa League situation and a great cup run.'

Ward-Prowse went on to say that with a new manager it usually takes time to find the right rhythm and hopefully now we can show we've adjusted to Mauricio Pellegrino.

'This season we have a new manager, a new style of play and a few new signings as well which have had a positive impact on the team. It`s a building process still for us all, but it`s a positive one in the making. After this two weeks, it`s a great chance for us to hit the ground running and take the league by storm now.'
