Newcastle fullback Rose hails victory at Southampton

Newcastle United fullback Danny Rose hailed victory at Southampton.

Allan Saint-Maximin proved the matchwinner on the day.

Speaking to the club's website, Rose said: “Considering we missed some great chances in the first half, you sort of think that maybe you've missed your chance to capitalise on them having ten men.

“But I think people need to realise that it's not easy playing against ten men. It's another clean sheet and it's been a great week for the football club; we're three games unbeaten, we've had two clean sheets in a row and it's a great win. It's one step closer to safety.

“I didn't see the tackle (that led to Djenepo's red card) but, from my point of view, it's the waiting game; it's a bit of suspense and you just hope the decision goes your way.

“It's gone for us today and we're thankful. We're over the moon that we managed to capitalise, though it's probably the hardest chance out of the lot that we've had today. Overall, it's been a massive week."
