‘I couldn’t feel any more pressure than I have been under this week’: Under-fire Southampton boss Nathan Jones vows to ‘keep fighting’ at St Mary’s despite suffering ANOTHER defeat to Wolves – and says his side lack ‘killer instinct’

  • Southampton boss Nathan Jones has vowed to ‘keep fighting’ at the club
  • His side lost 2-1 at home to Wolves after Joao Gomes scored a late winner
  • Jones admitted his side needed ‘a little bit more quality and killer instinct’

Nathan Jones has admitted he is feeling the pressure following another poor Southampton performance resulting in a loss.

Despite taking the lead against Wolves, the Saints failed to hold on and fell to a 2-1 defeat at home.

The Saints played against 10 men for over an hour as they could not capitalise on Wolves’ one man deficit.

Speaking after the game to Sky Sports, Jones said: ‘I couldn’t feel any more pressure than I have been under this week. We have to keep fighting.’

Jones’ side find themselves rock-bottom of the Premier League and have looked uninspired under Jones’ management so far.

Jones continued: ‘I’m really disappointed and frustrated. We created chances and we looked a proper team in the first half. We should be in control of the game with 10 men.’

Mario Lemina was shown a red card after just 27 minutes following a controversial second yellow card for reportedly ‘running aggressively towards referee Jarred Gillett’.

Southampton failed to take advantage of this which has left Jones ruing a missed opportunity to climb the table.  

Jones said: ‘We have to show a little bit more quality and killer instinct. 

‘We had 17 shots. We had a glorious chance to go 2-0 up. When we don’t take that chance and put balls over the bar then it’s always going to be tough.’

Joao Gomes made matters worse for Jones as he scored a late winner for the visitors.

Southampton host Chelsea in their next Premier League game as they look to bounce back in their fight against relegation.  

Many Southampton fans are not happy with Jones’ tenure as boss and have begun protesting
