Defender Kyle Walker-Peters emphasized the need for greater ruthlessness despite Southampton securing a 1-0 victory over Bristol City, extending their unbeaten streak to 10 games. Walker-Peters, the full-back, netted the solitary goal with a powerful left-footed shot from the edge of the box, showcasing his knack for scoring from a distance.

Reflecting on his winning goal, Walker-Peters acknowledged the satisfaction of finding his “sweet spot” and the intuitive sense that the shot would result in a goal. Following a frustrating draw at Huddersfield, he expressed contentment with the team’s ability to bounce back with a win.

Despite Bristol City’s first-half resistance, including two denied goals by Gavin Bazunu, they posed limited threats in the second half, with Southampton’s solid defensive performance culminating in their first clean sheet at St Mary’s since March. Walker-Peters commended the team’s positive result and the ability to learn from a less satisfactory performance.

While enjoying a remarkable 10-game unbeaten streak, Walker-Peters believes Southampton should have secured more wins, expressing confidence in the squad but emphasizing the need for greater ruthlessness. Despite having seven wins, he believes the team could have achieved nine victories, underscoring the room for improvement.

Acknowledging the consistent emphasis on clean sheets by goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu, Walker-Peters lauded his contributions in achieving defensive stability against Bristol City. Looking ahead to future games, he stressed the importance of maintaining focus on refining their ruthlessness, a quality highlighted by their standout performance against Leeds.

Walker-Peters revealed that coach Russell regularly addresses this aspect, emphasizing the ongoing efforts to enhance their clinical edge through continuous practice. As Southampton aims for another win against Cardiff City, Walker-Peters remains optimistic about the team’s potential to further develop their ruthless efficiency.
