Southampton captain Lallana: Cork inspired victory over Fulham

Southampton captain Adam Lallana hailed Jack Cork's performance for victory over Fulham.

Southampton captain Adam Lallana hailed Jack Cork's performance for victory over Fulham.

Cork was thrown on at the interval, and helped Saints overwhelm the Cottagers and race to an impressive 3-0 win.

“It was a bit frustrating in the first half,” said Lallana. “We weren’t at our best.

“It is a tough place to come, you can’t just stamp your authority on it from the off. But, in the second half, I think every player stepped up. We said at half-time we needed to step it up an extra 20 per cent.

“I thought Cork coming in, for me, changed the game.

“I thought he was absolutely outstanding."
