Ola Aina delighted with Southampton clean sheet

Fulham fullback, Ola Aina, was pleased with their point against Southampton for Saturday’s 0-0 draw.

It made it four without loss, while Fulham went 445 minutes without conceding a goal from open play.

“We all know how it was at the beginning of the season, so from that point to now, it just shows the hard work that we’re putting in, as well as the togetherness that we have,” Aina told fulhamfc.com.

“But I don’t think it’s only the backline you know, it goes throughout the team, it starts from the top.

“If it didn’t start at the top, then the opposition would get more chances on our goal, so the whole team has done well to get us these clean sheets.”

A shift in formation has seen Aina drop a little deeper in recent weeks, but he has settled quickly alongside Joachim Andersen and Tosin Adarabioyo in central defence.

“Normally I would be playing a bit wider, a bit further up the pitch, but I’ve always said that I’ll put a shift in wherever I’m placed,” Aina stated. “I’m in a back three at the minute and I’m really enjoying it, I feel really comfortable there.”
