Yet another opposition manager has come and told the press that Southampton were the best team they have come up against.
Preston Boss Paul Simpson told the local paper: 'We weren't sharp enough passing the ball and we weren't sharp enough closing Southampton down.
'But I have to say that is probably as good an opposition as we have played against this season. I think they were an excellent side, so this is a real big three points for us.'
'We have called upon our goalkeeper to make saves and called on our back four to defend. If Southampton can't finish their chances then we are not going to complain about that.
