Southampton fans think Hughes’s plan is too little too late

Southampton desperately needed three points against Leicester City on Thursday night, but it was not to be as the club were held to a goalless draw.

A point is better than none, but the coastal club remain four points adrift of safety with as many games left to play.

Since Mark Hughes took over as manager in March, the club have not picked up a league win, and now they seem destined for the Championship.

The team have mustered just 33 goals in 34 top-flight games this season, which highlights how much of a problem the attack has been.

In fairness to Hughes, the former Stoke City boss has got the team firing more frequently that they did under former boss Mauricio Pellegrino.

The team have netted six times in their last five games in all competitions, but they have relinquished their lead twice.

Hughes has urged his players to be more expansive in their approach, but the fans think that it is too late.

Despite the dismal league campaign, Southampton could potentially end the season with silverware as they are in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
