Stuart’s determination, hard work and also chipping in with the odd goal occasionally has completely won me over! A good days graft from all the lads on pitch with a decent result to show for it! Up the Saints ❤️

He's a grafter, his passing and ability to score important goals…

Danny Ings and Moussa Djenepo were constant threats during the match, and they were denied by Pepe Reina.
However, when Reina came up for a late corner, Armstrong raced on to Adams’ long ball to place the ball in the empty net to seal the victory.
Southampton managed only 46% of possession but they attempted 28 shots of which they managed to keep nine on target, according to BBC Sport.
