​Southampton fullback Bertrand: Long can keep going

Southampton fullback Ryan Bertrand believes that teammate Shane Long will keep scoring.

The Saints frontman has been in good nick over the past few games, notching his second goal of the Premier League season.

And Bertrand believes it is a positive for the team that Long is in goal scoring form during the crucial run in to avoid relegation.

He said to reporters: "It's good for any of our strikers to get off the mark.

"He worked very hard on Friday and got what he deserved.

"If you look at his commitment, it's never in question.

"He just needs to get the rub of the green sometimes and he got that against Liverpool.

"Hopefully, he can go on and keep that form going now.

"People are always going to talk but as long as you stay mentally strong and believe in your abilities then you can do your talking on the pitch."
