Sharp's double delight
11:43pm Tuesday 17th April 2012 in Saints News
BILLY Sharp is hoping his double at Peterborough will be the goals that help fire Saints back into the Premier League.
The £1.8m January signing struck twice in the 3-1 win at London Road as Nigel Adkins’ team moved to within a victory of the top flight.
Sharp admitted his brace against Posh represented two of the most critical goals he has bagged.
“All my goals for Southampton have been important,” he said.
“Hopefully they’ll be important goals to help the squad and take us to the Premiership.”
Saints have tonight moved five points ahead of third-placed West Ham, after they drew 1-1 at Bristol City, meaning they can now wrap up automatic promotion with a win at Middlesbrough on Saturday.
