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.
