Redmond double helps Southampton beat timid Wolves 3-1

Share

Nathan Redmond scored twice for Hassenhuttl's side, who now have an eight point cushion from Cardiff City in the final relegation position.

Saints were in a hurry to pad their bid for Premier League safety, and Josh Sims took advantage in his first Premier League start of the season. It is a very positive thing for him and helps us a lot. "I think now there is a little less pressure but I want this team to show me we are still focused and trying to win every game".

"But we have a special relationship I think".

"You can read the table and we are always speaking about the 40 points and as long as we don't have 40 points I don't celebrate staying in the league so there is still a long way to go".

"We have breakfast together, train together, eat lunch together, eat dinner together". The game was there for us, but we conceded in a way we can not concede.

"To give them back what they give us during 90 minutes". "Come on", said Nuno, walking out to cut short his post-match interviews.

They return to league action at Southampton today and Nuno (right) said: "You have to organise your thoughts, and what we feel now is pride".

Redmond added: "Wolves have had a fantastic season and maybe this was a hangover from last week's (FA) Cup defeat but we had to concentrate on ourselves".

Hasenhuttl brought on Long for Ings in the second half, and the substitute notched his second goal in as many games by flicking home from Maya Yoshida's pass.

"Those were the moments we played better".

"We need to regroup, analyse, look at the game and react for the next one".
