McCarthy: That shows our spirit

Alex McCarthy believes the Southampton late show at Burnley demonstrates the team spirit in the dressing room.

Saints trailed to Ashley Barnes’s goal midway through the second half until substitute Manolo Gabbiadini fired home on the turn in the 90th minute at Turf Moor.

The hosts were left aggrieved after it appeared one of the Burnley players was blocked off by the referee in the build-up to the equaliser – some good fortune McCarthy feels has been lacking this season.

“Obviously coming away to Burnley we knew it was going to be a tough game, but to get the point in the end is massive,” said the goalkeeper.

“We haven’t had a lot of luck this season, but getting that bit of luck has obviously resulted in a goal for us.

“It wasn’t going to be a pretty game, but the boys stuck together and we got the point in the end.

“We’ve got great character in this group and a great squad with great players.

“The boys still think we could’ve done better out there – we know we can – but there are a lot of positives we can take into Stoke next week.”
