Jack Cork: Southampton midfielder wants win against West Brom to ensure survival

The goalless draw at Swansea at the weekend took Southampton to 39 points - eight clear of the drop zone - with four matches remaining in their first season back in the Premier League.

Cork told the Daily Echo: "We've got West Brom at home and if we can win that then hopefully that will be us safe I think, but at the minute we just need a few more points.

"We worked so hard last year and I was so happy for the lads to get up. For us to stay in the Premier League this year, I know how much it would mean to all of them."

Cork made his 100th appearance for Southampton in the game at the Liberty Stadium and was happy to leave with a point.

"We had to deal with a lot of pressure from Swansea in the second half and at the beginning of the first half," he added.

"It was a hard game for us. The heat didn't help, especially when you're playing a team that likes to pass it round a bit, because we were going to have long spells without the ball.

"It was hard, but we also played some good stuff at times. We created a few chances and it was a good game. I think both teams would take the point."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
