Having capped his appearance with a brace, Rodriguez was understandably delighted with his evening's work:
"To get on the pitch and to get 90 minutes is great for me," he admitted to Saints Player.
"I just want to play, and to get two goals for the team is brilliant. I'm really chuffed.
"It's a nice feeling to have got my first goals, especially at St Mary's because there was a good atmosphere.
"I've got to keep working hard and maintaining things so that I can keep scoring as many goals as I can, and that's what I aim to do."
