Southampton

Boss targets one more win

26th April 2019, 09:32 by Nick Harris

Ralph Hasenhuttl wants Southampton to end their fight against relegation with a home win against south-coast neighbours Bournemouth.

The Saints boss said earlier in the year that this could be the game which decides the club's Premier League status for another season and so it has turned out to be.

A win for Southampton would take them to 40 points and almost certain safety which will be some achievement for Hasenhuttl considering the club's precarious position before his arrival.

He told reporters: "I know that it's something like a derby against Bournemouth on the south coast, because we are not far away from each other and it's a special game.

"For us, it's mainly a special game because we make the last step and we are very, very motivated for this game.

"To do the last step in front of our crowd, that's exactly what we wanted to have three games before the end – and now is the chance and we are very motivated."
