MANAGER Russell Martin claims he was "really proud" Saints managed to extend their unbeaten run to 10 games but still wants more from his side.

Kyle Walker-Peters' fantastic strike from the edge of the box was the difference in a 1-0 win over Bristol City on Wednesday night.

Gavin Bazunu made a number of saves to ensure Saints recorded their third clean sheet of the season - and their first at home since March.

Southampton's 10-game run has seen them claim 24 points, which puts them fourth in the Championship, eight points off the automatic spots.

“It’s amazing," Martin noted when asked how he felt after his side's seventh win in 10 games

"You can’t be lucky for 10 games. You can maybe be lucky for a few games, but I don’t think you can be lucky for 10 games.

“I’m really proud of the players, but you always want more. It’s a three-game week, we are all knackered because of the amount of time it’s taken to get to that point.

“We will be up to the late hours tonight watching the game to get as many clips to show the lads tomorrow to get us ready for Saturday.

“We are in a position where we are chasing down two teams who have had the best start to the Championship ever. It’s a bit of an anomaly but there we are."

He continued: “We are around two points a game which is usually the mark for being where you want to be.

"We have to keep hunting them down to make up for missed time through a tough period. I’m so happy about where we are.

"I feel like we are growing. Am I completely happy? No, because I think there is so much growth still to come in the team.

“I’m so happy with where we are from where we have been. You’ve got to convince everyone what is coming and winning helps. I think we will only get better.”

Saints host Cardiff City up next in the Championship, with the Welsh side visiting on Saturday, December 2 (3PM).
