Pardew- Saints are looking strong

Last updated : 26 January 2010 By Team Talk

Pardew said: "I thought our application, attitude and pressure we put them under was the highlight of the night. We had players who were prepared to do everything to make sure we got a result and I thought we deserved to win.

"We worked on our pressurising and we never gave them a moment's peace. We had two or three chances before we scored so I thought the goal was deserved.

"The sending-off changed things for the last 10 minutes and then we were hanging on - I thought it was a really harsh decision.

"I expected to get at least a draw with the quality we've got but a win is a bonus. It puts us in a good position but we can't approach the home tie lightly."
