Dusan Tadic has called for a repeat of the performance against Watford that saw Saints notch their first win of the New Year as they prepare to face West Brom on Saturday.

The Serb came off the bench in the game against Watford and made an immediate impact, scoring past Heurelho Gomes just two minutes after his introduction. Ronald Koeman's men secured a 2-0 win against the Hornets, with Shane Long securing the first goal.

Tadic has urged his side to put in the same kind of performance to record two back to back wins for the first time since early November.

He told Southampton's official YouTube channel: "I think it’s realy important because we need points. We just need to show the same energy, same spirit and same team performance and I think we will not have a problem.

"The most important is that we’re stable and we perform well as a team."

Tadic believed the win against Watford was thoroughly deserved, especially after a string of good performances but poor results.

"It was really important that we finally win because some of the games we played good but the result doesn’t follow that. Finally we got both.

"I think everyone felt a result was going to come because I think we deserved that a couple of weeks before.

"This is good for confidence for us because we really need that. And also for the supporters. We gave them that win, they deserve that also.

"We have great fans. They support us even when its bad. Sometimes we play some good games but the result didn’t follow. They can be happy now."

The forward is anticipating a difficult game against West Brom but is confident the team can put in another strong performance.

"They are a strong, physical team. They play compact and together they probably will not give us so much space. I think we need to create that space and try to punish them."
