Pochettino pleased by 'brave' Saints

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino says his players were "brave" in their 1-0 away victory against Crystal Palace.

The Saints were inspired to victory by Jay Rodriguez, who chased down a poor Jason Puncheon headed backpass to challenge Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni and turn the ball into an empty net.

The result ends a poor run of three consecutive defeats for Southampton in the Premier League.
