Ryan Bertrand felt the St Mary’s atmosphere was integral to Southampton gaining a point during their 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur.

A spirited display saw captain Bertrand’s left-wing cross converted by Davinson Sánchez to give the hosts a lead, before Harry Kane’s 99th Premier League goal levelled.

And despite both sides having chances to win it late in the second-half, the full-back was happy with a point.

“In the grand scheme of things, it’s a good point. It’s a shame as we could of and should of took three points but in the position we’re in we’ve got to be realistic,” Bertrand reflected.

“We’re fighting for points. If you analyse the fixtures we’ve got ten or so games that are definitely must wins and others we can win but they’re not necessarily the points we’re expected to take.

“We are more than capable of stringing two results together back to back and we’re four points off the top ten at the minute so if you do that it’s a completely different outlook.”

He added: “I can understand the fans' frustrations. They’ve been short-tempered at times but they have every right to be.

“We have high expectations at this club but even in these times they have to stick with us. They showed that, they were fantastic and more than helped us get the point.”
