"I am very pleased for everyone," he said.
"Especially the supporters. I think we knew how big of a game it was for them today, it's been such a long time since we've beaten Southampton.
"But we were on it tonight and the crowd were very good. They got behind us and we gave them something to cheer about.
"The whole team functioned and when we do play well and the whole team is performing, we are a very difficult team to beat."
