Dusan Tadic has been speaking ahead of the weekend’s game against West Bromwich Albion and he’s said the Watford win should’ve been the shot in the arm that Southampton needed to boost confidence and get our season back on track following the recent run of results.

Speaking to saintsfc Tadic said that having been on a run of successive defeats again, taking the win and with a performance like that, was just what everyone needed ahead of what will be another battle with Tony Pulis’ side.

‘This was a really important this win, and now we have much more confidence. Everyone was feeling good and this is good confidence for us. We really need that, and also the supporters, I think they support us nicely and we give them that win and they deserve that also, because a couple of results at home we didn’t give them that. Then we need to prepare for Saturday and do it again. We need points and we just need to show the same energy, same spirit, same team performance, and then I think we will not have a problem.’

Adding about Watford and the belief in the camp.

‘I think everyone felt that the result was going to come, because I think we deserved that before – a couple of games before when we play much better than our opponents, but this is football, you never know what’s going to happen and what you can expect.’

Speaking more specifically about this weekend’s opposition, he went on to say that creating space was vitally important for the side because we all know how tight Albion will be defensively once more.

‘They are a strong team, they are a physical team also. They play compact. Also, the game there (September) they were playing really compact and together. Probably they will not give us so much space, but I think we need to create that space and to try to punish them and try to open a good game.’

With three points potentially seeing a move back into the top half of the table, Tadic said that is what everyone will be aiming for as obviously perception would then change again and it would help confidence further.

‘I think then everyone will watch the table, because the last couple of weeks I think nobody wanted to watch the table, but now when you take some points then it’s more easy and more nice to watch it.’
