However Foster is adamant the team are remaining grounded despite their lofty position:
“It’s a cliché but we are really not getting carried away we are taking each game as it comes and we will just see where it goes,” He SkySports after the game.
“For the majority of the table I think there are 14 odd teams probably hoping to get to the 40 point mark and take it from there and we’re no different”
“We will get to that 40 point mark as soon as possible and see what games we have left.”
Two goals from striker Peter Odemwingie were enough to decide the game and leave the Saints rooted to the foot of the table.
The Nigerian broke the deadlock with a deflected 25-yard effort to give his side the advantage heading into the half-time interval.
He then doubled both his and the teams tally in the 60th minute, heading in a pin-point cross from Shane Long.
