Southampton’s B head coach Dave Horseman hailed the resilience of his team following a hard-earned point at Premier League 2 leaders Liverpool.

Despite the game ending goalless there were plenty of chances for both sides in an end-to-end fixture.

Saints’ had Kingsley Latham and his back four to thank for withstanding waves of Liverpool pressure, particularly during the first half.

But second half came real attacking intent from Horseman’s side.

“Actually we should have scored a few and the boys are a bit disappointed we didn’t win the game in the end,” said Horseman.

“But I think you have to show the opposition massive respect because they did cause us a few problems first half which the back four and goalkeeper really did solve for us in the end.

We're starting to look like a real good, organised, pressing team which, whether it's liverpool or man city, gives teams really good games.

“Particularly first half; Liam Millar is a good player and then were able to get some one-on-ones in and Kings [Kingsley Latham] made some big saves.

“They obviously hit the post but the boys showed a bit of grit to block a few things, then second half we were more on the front foot.”

“The boys deserve all the credit because they’ve really bought into the new way of playing.

“With a load of changes to the team, quite a few stayed behind to train with the first team which is great for them, some of these boys got the opportunity and showed some positive signs.”
