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."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
