Puel praises Saints solidarity

By SFC Media time Thu 29 Sep Hapoel vs Saints

Claude Puel praised the solidarity of his side after seeing them earn a valuable point in Group K against Hapoel Be’er Sheva.

The goalless scoreline ensured Saints kept a fifth clean sheet in a row against a side yet to be beaten since moving to the Turner Stadium.

And Puel, who freshened up his line-up once more making seven changes, felt it was important moving forward.

He said: “I think it is a good point because we played a good team who have good physical and technical players.

“It was important to come back with a point when we cannot get three for the future.

Puel added: “We could not find a goal or many good chances but we kept a point against a very good team. It is not a surprise that they beat Inter Milan.

“We can see the solidarity between the players to get the result as it was a very difficult game, with a long journey and we now try to recover for Leicester in two days.”
