Austin: Spirits high ahead of Hull

By SFC Media Sat 05 Nov Hull vs Saints

There might be a short turnaround between Internazionale and Hull City, but Charlie Austin says Saints will travel north full of energy, following Thursday night's famous result.

Claude Puel's side recorded a win that will go down in Southampton history, as they prevailed 2-1 against the Italian giants in the UEFA Europa League, at St Mary's.

"It was a massive night for the lads, the coaching staff, the whole team, and everyone involved in the club," said Austin.

"To come back from 1-0 down showed great team spirit and character, and we got the win, which was rightly deserved from us.

"You have to move on, but we're moving on with a win behind us. It's not like coming in and the lads are down. Our spirits are high and another win means we're going to Hull full of confidence.

"If you look back on the results we've had, we beat Burnley at home, then we went to Man City and got a point.

"We got beaten by Chelsea at the weekend, but that was four out of a possible nine and we go to Hull full of confidence and hopefully we can get the win there and then with that block of games we've had there, hopefully we'll come out on top with seven points out of a possible 12, and we'd be happy with that."
