Saints shed shackles to sink Everton, says Clyne

By SFC Media time Sat 26 Apr First team

Nathaniel Clyne says Saints played with a sense of freedom in today’s victory over Everton.

The full-back collected the Barclays Man of the Match award after helping the side secure their second successive clean sheet as own-goals from Toffees defenders Antolin Alcaraz and Seamus Coleman secured a 2-0 victory.

And Clyne was happy with how matters were played out in what was the side’s penultimate home game of the 2013/14 campaign.

“We just got out there and attacked because we had nothing to lose,” Clyne told BT Sport after the game. 

“We just played our game and enjoyed it. We created a lot of chances today and got the two goals.”

Even with two games still to be played in the current campaign, the 23-year-old is already looking to the future – and says European qualification will be a realistic aim.

“This is a club on the up and I am just happy to be a part of it,” enthused Clyne.

“We have a lot of young attacking players here that are coming in so if we can keep pushing on we could be up near the European spots.”
