Boruc cool over contract talk
Southampton's penalty save hero Artur Boruc has no intentions of letting uncertainty over his own future impact on performances for the team.

The wild celebrations from the jubilant travelling supporters saw the former Celtic keeper come full circle after being dropped earlier in the campaign when he was said to have thrown a water bottle into the crowd at St Mary's after being barracked following a mistake against Tottenham.
Boruc, signed on a free transfer after leaving Fiorentina in September, is out of contract in the summer, but remains focused on the job in hand.
"I will leave it to my agent and the club," he said. "I am just doing my best and I'm working hard, so we will see what is going to happen."
Southampton's point edged them a small step closer to the survival target, and was at least a positive response to last weekend's bitterly disappointing home defeat by bottom club QPR.
"It's always important not to lose," Boruc said. "We are working hard and I think we have shown in the last couple of games that we can play good football."
Boruc added: "We don't look like a team who should be relegated and that's the main thing.
"We are quite confident. I think it's a matter of time and we are going to grab points."
Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino, who replaced Nigel Adkins in mid-January, sees no reason why Boruc should not be given a second chance.
"We should focus on Boruc's save at the end of the game because basically it meant one point for us," the Argentinian coach said.
"We all have something that we have done in the past.
"At Southampton we have three very good goalkeepers. Artur and Kelvin (Davis) have shown that they have experience and we have a young keeper in Pablo (Gazzaniga)."
