Danny Ings believes the stunning comeback win over Burnley allows Saints to draw a line under their wretched start to 2021.
Danny Ings said: “You talk about Premier League survival, it goes to show how difficult it has been for us this year. The form that we had at the start of the season compared to where we were at before the international break; to put that behind us, to start afresh and start with a win is huge and something we can build on. I think it’s the work on the training pitch. Us as players know that as a team other results haven’t been good enough, we wanted to put that right. We put the work in over the international break, quite a few lads were away with their countries but now we’re back together, back on the training pitch and working hard.”
Aside from reaching an FA Cup semi-final, it has been a fairly miserable calendar year for Saints. England international Ings has now struck nine times in the top flight this campaign and admits fitness issues have made it tough to replicate the red-hot form which brought 22 goals last term.
Danny Ings said:“It’s been quite an interrupted season for me personally. It’s been quite difficult to get going but now that I’m back fit I want to keep scoring and helping the team as much as I can. I’m extremely happy. I’ve worked hard whilst I’ve been out to make sure I’m in the best shape possible to come back and I thought that it showed in the game. Team goals come before personal goals in my opinion but more results like Sunday would be fantastic.”
Striker Ings, who was involved in each of the hosts’ goals on his return from a month-long injury absence, says the team had been determined to atone for their alarming slide.
