Artur Boruc saves Grant Holt's penalty on Saturday

Southampton's penalty save hero Artur Boruc has no intentions of letting uncertainty over his own future impact on performances for the team.

The 33-year-old Poland goalkeeper helped earn the Saints a hard-fought share of the spoils in atrocious conditions at Norwich when he pushed away Grant Holt's spot-kick in stoppage time.

The wild celebrations from the jubilant travelling supporters saw the former Celtic keeper come full circle after being dropped earlier in the campaign when he was said to have thrown a water bottle into the crowd at St Mary's after being barracked following a mistake against Tottenham.

Boruc, signed on a free transfer after leaving Fiorentina in September, is out of contract in the summer, but remains focused on the job in hand.

"I will leave it to my agent and the club," he said. "I am just doing my best and I'm working hard, so we will see what is going to happen."

Southampton's point edged them a small step closer to the survival target, and was at least a positive response to last weekend's bitterly disappointing home defeat by bottom club QPR.

"It's always important not to lose," Boruc said. "We are working hard and I think we have shown in the last couple of games that we can play good football."

Boruc added: "We don't look like a team who should be relegated and that's the main thing.

"We are quite confident. I think it's a matter of time and we are going to grab points."

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino, who replaced Nigel Adkins in mid-January, sees no reason why Boruc should not be given a second chance.

"We should focus on Boruc's save at the end of the game because basically it meant one point for us," the Argentinian coach said.

"We all have something that we have done in the past.

"At Southampton we have three very good goalkeepers. Artur and Kelvin (Davis) have shown that they have experience and we have a young keeper in Pablo (Gazzaniga)."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
