Artur: I was just doing my job!

By SFC Media Sat 21 Sep First team

Artur Boruc brushed off praise for the superb first-half save he made during Saints' memorable win at Anfield today, insisting that he was simply doing what's expected of him.

The Polish goalkeeper did superbly to tip Steven Gerrard's 21st-minute free-kick around the post on his way to a third clean sheet in the space of five games.

But he shunned the limelight at full-time, preferring to focus on the overall achievement of a memorable result.

"That's my job – that's what I should do in every single game," Boruc told Saints Player when asked to reflect on that early stop. 

"I'm quite pleased with my performance, especially with the clean sheet, and I'm really, really pleased with our performance at the back. 

"We've kept clean sheets in three of the five games, which is a good thing for us."

Boruc is now hoping that Saints can build momentum on the back of today's result as the side goes into three consecutive home games ahead of next month's international break.

"These kind of games build your confidence, both at the back and at the front," he explained. 

"To win at Anfield is a big thing for us, and hopefully we'll keep that going. This shows how good a team we are.

"We're getting stronger. Every single game is going to be a big one for us, and we've got a couple of new players in the team now so we're going to get even better."
