Steven Davis calls for togetherness

  Steven Davis calls for togetherness Southampton club captain Steven Davis has called for togetherness as the club enter a crucial period. Davis, as quoted by the Mirror, addressed the media following his side’s 1-0 win away at Fulham in the FA Cup on Saturday and spoke about how the fans are currently responding to Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino. “It’s important we all stick together. We’re not in a position any of us want to be in, fans, players and staff alike.” The under-fire Argentine boss has been the subject of much criticism of late and Saints fans directed plenty of vitriol towards him, despite the win at Fulham. His decision to withdraw Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for Mario Lemina late on caused quite the stir among the travelling Saints faithful, further contributing to the scrutiny which surrounds Pellegrino. Davis, though, wants to see the whole club pulling together to try and help them out of their current relegation battle. “The most important thing is we’re all fighting together to move forward in the right direction. Stuff like that doesn’t really help.” “We need the fans more than ever at this point, whenever you’re struggling. To be fair, I thought they were in good voice today as well — and they came here in good numbers.” Saints sit in 17th place on the Premier League table at just over the halfway stage of the season and know that they have to pick up points sooner rather than later. Next up for them is Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino was left frustrated after his side let a two-goal led slip against Watford at Vicarage Road this afternoon as reported by the Saints official website.

Saints took the lead in the first half thanks to two strikes from midfielder James Ward-Prowse had given his side a well-deserved lead at the break only for Watford to respond after the interval.

Saints once more failed to build on their advantage and instead held on for what they thought would be a massive three points on for Watford to level up late on.

The Saints boss spoke to the media after the draw and was left disappointed by the manner of the Watford leveller against his side.

““You want there to be justice for everyone, but today was an injustice for us,” said the boss.“I thought we played a really good first half. We showed we can be dangerous in open play on the counter-attack, and in defence for most of the game we played well.”

He spoke about his sides difficulty dealing with Watford’s frontline with the moves which they made.

““When you are winning 2-0, you expect your opponent to play very direct and it’s something that’s difficult to defend because maybe they are a little bit better than us in this aspect.“You have to put an extra body in front of the back four, which means you have one less body in front of them.“We did ok – most of the time we did well because I don’t remember many chances for Watford in the second half, just long balls and some crosses.“But we didn’t have the good luck that you need to win.””

Southampton have money to spend this month after selling Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool for a world-record fee of £75 million earlier in the window.

Carillo has impressed in spells for Monaco this season, scoring eight times in all competitions. The 26-year-old has been unable to hold down a regular place in the Ligue 1 side and the Saints have been in talks to sign the player this month. The Saints are in the market for a winger after they failed to convince former player Theo Walcott to return to the club. The England international completed a move to Everton last week despite being heavily linked with a return to St Mary’s.
