Fraser Forster believes Southampton’s victory over West Bromwich Albion caps off a good week’s work for Claude Puel’s men.

Saints have now picked up seven points from their last three games, and Forster admitted that they had to dig deep for the win at the Hawthorns. 

“We’ve really dug in today,” he started.

“Obviously it was a hot day and very fatiguing as the game went on, but it was a fantastic team performance and that caps off a great week for us.

“It was always going to be hard place to come and the game got broken up a bit in the second half, but luckily we held out for all three points.”

Jordy Clasie’s strike will go down in the record books as sealing the victory against West Brom, though Forster's heroics will be remembered by those watching. 

The England ‘keeper made a number of saves to keep Saints in the game, most notably a late stop from Craig Dawson’s point-bank range volley.

“I am just happy to contribute,” Forster continued.

“The defence have been awesome this season and today it was my turn to be there to put in a helping hand.

“It’s a fantastic win for us and hopefully it can set us up to finish the season strongly now.”
