The Liberty Is A Hard Place To Come

Six Championship sides have tried to take three points from the LIberty this season and all have failed with most coming to play for a point.

Wins over Nottingham Forest and Wolves were added to draws against Sheffield Wednesday, Derby, Burnley and Tuesday night’s stalemate with QPR.

And evidenced by the fact that QPR managed one shot in 90 minutes – 66 of them against a right back in goal – the Liberty is clearly becoming a fortress – excellent news with Southampton due in town on Saturday.

And midfielder Darren Pratley told the Evening Post “When you start the season you always say to yourselves that you want a strong home record

“We have not lost a game so far and we’re looking to keep that going for as long as possible.Click here!

“As players we all understand the way we play and I think the formation we play suits the players we’ve got.

“We’ve made the Liberty a hard place to come with the tempo we play and our style.

“Whoever comes here now is going to have to sweat blood to get a result.

“When one of the favourites to get promoted come here and do that, it just shows how far we’ve come

“And the fact that Alan Tate didn’t have a save to make after he went in goal tells you the story of the game.

“We dominated pretty much from start to finish and the disappointment for us was that we didn’t take all three points.”

And on Saturday’s game, Pratley added “They are another big club with a lot of young players who, like us, are full of enthusiasm, It’s going to be another difficult test for us.”
