Wotte: Not a happy weekend for us

Wotte: Not a happy weekend for us

Southampton boss Mark Wotte confesses that this weekend's results did not help his sides' chances of staying in the Championship.

The Saints came crashing at Sheffield Wednesday, and two goals from Luke Varney put the Saints on the brink of relegation.

'It's a devastating result and I think Sheffield Wednesday wanted to show something after their last result,' he told saintsfc.co.uk.

'We were fighting in the first twenty minutes and were playing direct football instead of passing it but the first key moment was their goal which was clearly off-side.'

The Dutchman is aware that the future of the club is not in their hands: 'I am very disappointed about the result and we need a miracle to stay up now because we need to get six points and rely on other results in the last two games.'

Nottingham Forest beat Coventry City to add salt into the wound for the Saints. The result for Forest could well send the Saints to the third tier of English football which has been unknown territory for 49 years.

So disappointing. Where have all our strikers gone?

Loans. That's the problem. Loaning out Stern John, Rasiak and Saganowksi at the beginning of the season has killed us. BUT, that's the financial situation we find ourselves in. We haven't scored enough goals this season, which is why it looks like league 1 football next year...

I hear what you're saying, but surely those players that we have here should be making the effort? Or am I expecting too much? Saga, Euell, BWP and Smith were dreadful on Saturday, and have been for the last five or six games. What happened to those strikers that I watched 'batter' Ipswich?

Fingers crossed for a Barnsley win at Coventry tonite. That would be another nail in your coffin. Play up Barnsley.

Coventry did us a massive favour. We were two minutes away from being six points off safety, and effectively relegated. Thank god for Coventry's equalizer. We STILL have a very SMALL chance of staying up! COYR!
