'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Pahars makes progress

Marian Pahars made another attempted come back from injury last night, when he started a reserve game against West Ham at Staplewood.

It took him only 19 minutes to score, slotting home a side footed volley from ten yards. He also managed to last an hour of the match before being replaced by McGoldrick.

It seems Pahars is still feeling his knee injury but if he can come through a few more games without sustaining further injury we may yet see him return to the first team.

'It could still be painful for a few weeks, maybe even months, but I know all about playing through pain. I just have to push on.'

Lets hope he can as it would be a huge boost if we could get him fit and in first team contention.

The match finished 1-1 after West Ham equalised just after half time when Hogan Ephraim's cross from the right was finished off by Petr Mikolanda.

New signing Bartosz Bialkowski, making his debut in goal for Saints, produced an outstanding performance to keep the match level. As Hammers coach Kevin Keen acknowledged,

'We could have scored four or five if it wasn't for their goalkeeper.'

It's clear the 18-year-old has huge potential and it's obvious why Burley and goalkeeping coach Malcolm Webster were eager to sign him before he was snapped up by another club.



Saints: Bialkowski, Thomson, Mills, Richards, Bale (Lancashire 15), Folly, Sparv (Dutton-Black 60), Gillett, Griffit, Pahars (McGoldrick 60), Best. Subs not used: Condesso, McNeil.
