Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez states his case to play up front

Daily Echo: Jay Rodriguez Jay Rodriguez

JAY Rodriguez would prefer to play up front for Saints than out wide – but has promised to do his utmost wherever Nigel Adkins selects him.

The 23-year-old striker joined the Premier League new boys for a club record fee in the region of £7m in the summer, but has predominantly been used on the left flank by Adkins.

Rodriguez started in attack for the first time since joining Saints as Sheffield Wednesday were beaten 2-0 in the Capital One Cup third round on Tuesday night.

The former Burnley striker – a League Cup specialist – was the star of the show as he netted both goals in a 2-0 victory that not only helped Saints progress to the last 16 but boosted his chances of becoming a regular in his preferred position. “It was really good for us to get through to the next round and put on a good show for the fans,” Rodriguez said.

“Also for ourselves it builds confidence heading into the game on Saturday [against Everton].

“To get on the pitch is great and to get that amount of minutes is great. I just want to play and to get the two goals was brilliant so I am really chuffed.

“It was nice to get my first goal for the club. It’s a nice feeling to score, especially at St Mary's.

“I love playing up front. I felt really good playing that role and getting in behind and trying cause the defenders as many problems as I can.

“It is a good feeling to play up front and that is where I like it. It is where I’ve grown up and learned to play, but I will work as hard as I can for the team and play in any position.

“I will try my hardest in any position but, yeah, I do enjoy playing up front.”

Not only has Rodriguez been used out of position by Saints, but he has found playing time limited due to the influx of new players.

After starting against Manchester City and Wigan in Saints’ first two Premier League games, the Burnley-born player has found himself on the bench.

Recent strike signing Emmanuel Mayuka has been preferred to him as a late sub for Rickie Lambert in recent games.

Rodriguez, though, knows the competition for places will only help him.

“It has been very frustrating but in the same sense you are really happy in how the last result was,” he said, referring to Saturday’s 4-1 defeat of Aston Villa – Saints’ first Premier League win this season.

“The lads deserved it and there is great competition for places. It is a healthy competition and it makes you improve as a player and that is what you need as a team.

“We’ve known how good we were deep down and it was proved in the game on Saturday.

“Now we need to look forward to the Everton game and carry on what we have been doing.”

Rodriguez will be hoping for an extended run in the Saints side in the League Cup.

The striker was agonisingly close to a place in the final back in 2008/09.

He scored in the semi-final against Tottenham at Turf Moor, his goal forcing extra time in the second leg as it gave Burnley a 3-0 lead having lost the first leg 4-1 at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham netted twice in extratime, though, to win through to Wembley.

In an earlier round Rodriguez had scored Burnley’s late winner against Premiership club Fulham.

Last season, playing for the Clarets in what was then the Carling Cup , he belted four goals in a 6-3 win against Burton Albion.

In my mind there is no doubting his ability, hence the price tag, he came to Saints in the knowledge that RL was our number one striker and he would challenge for the number one spot, his eagerness to start is natural and it's great he bangs them in when he gets his chance, that can only be good for the club, it keeps RL on his toes as well.

Who'd have thought it,a few years ago Saints would paying £7 million for youngster who doesn't automatically get start in the 1st team.

Wonderful times for the club and all us supporters.

It is an option - and in Nigel we trust to make those decisions and judgements.

Cup games are tailor made for such decisions.

Look - with wet spam AWAY tickets up for grabs and the supporters getting behind the MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON - the expectation and demand is to move UP THE PREMIER LEAGUE.

everton are no mugs - but we must get off to a good start and set up stall to WIN the game. leeds out worked and out battled them recently and the Supporters will want to see the same type of dedication in battle to take the points at the weekend.

More than ever - every game counts. There is no difference between HOME and AWAY games and last weeks result proves we can cut it and do well in the PREMIER LEAGUE.

RED ARMY. FIGHT AND WIN.
UP THE PREMIER LEAGUE WE GO.

Not sure how you can honestly compare the two at this stage as J Rod hasn't had nearly enough game time. Clearly Ricky is a fans favourite for good reason but how can you say he's not in the same league as Ricky before he's even played 10 games ???? plus take into account his age compared to Ricky. The thing that saddens me about Saints fans most is they choose their favourites then anyone else doesn't have a chance. I support a TEAM not just individual players. But hey that's just my own opinion

Nigel has helped him manage by explaining all he needs to do is get lots in at one end and keep a clean sheet at the other.

J R will become a fans favourite in time and i can see him playing in the premiership for us this season. I dont think we can compare the two players at this present time. J R is a lot younger than RL and so has time to be content to bide his time.
Rickie is our no . 1 at the moment but even the best needs a helping hand sometimes. As a club we are fortunate to have them both to pick from and whoever wears the shirt , i am sure is supported by the other.
Together we stand to journey forward and upwards.

Get the wife on the door and bacon sarnies, tell her what needs doing with the trades coming in and put her in charge. They like nothing better than being in charge. Then do your bits sunday in a happy mood after watching Saints beat the toffees.!!!!

Yep! Tell her you're just popping out to get the toffees.

When you get home at midnight after a few post-match celebratory beers with Retford, just make sure you remembered to call at Sainsbury's to buy a huge tin of Quality Street.

J7, in short, you're stuffed. Wish I could take the tickets. Never been to Goodison.

There is one consolation though Strassie. We have managed to get our West Ham tickets by buying the Everton ones so our cunning plan has worked even though we could end up out of pocket.
Plus we now have more chance of getting our tickets for QPR, Liverpool and Norwich and other games we have ear marked.
J7 and the Woolston Connection are once again mobilised for some great away days after the disappointment of missing out on the Emirates

Still ot 3 Everton tickets for sale if anyones interested.
We are prepared to let them go cheap.
So if any Saints fans out their want to make me an offer then please do.
I'd rather they got used and saved someone else a bit of cash than bin them.
I am prepared to drop them off or meet someone within a 5 mile radius of Woolston if it helps.
Gentlemen ( or Ladies) start your bidding!!!”

tbh choice of centre forward is made on balance of finishing and all round play. Rickie on a good day chimes in well all over the paddock, hits the ball well from distance and gets up the air for assists and goals. He's pretty consistant and has more goals on the sheet than anyone in recent years. It's his off/slow days that will cop him the odd half on the bench and there's no harm in that when we are giving chances in the middle to talent like Jay.
