Ward-Prowse is a renowned set-piece specialist and he certainly delivered in this match, much to the delight of expectant Saints fans.

One fan expressed their joy at seeing Ward-Prowse’s free-kick but also explained how the young English midfielder needs to add more to his game to truly fulfil his potential as a top player.

Several fans also saw the relief and passion in Jan Bednarek’s face as Ward-Prowse’s strike hit the back of the net.

Ward-Prowse’s late goal struck a chord with so many and the importance of the goal was felt by the players and fans on Saturday. Saints fans will now be hoping this win can kick start a revival to their season with some important fixtures coming up.
