Vic­tory lifts Saints out of drop zone

Bristol Post - - SPORT -

» SOUTHAMP­TON climbed out of the rel­e­ga­tion zone as Ralph Hasen­huttl’s rev­o­lu­tion con­tin­ued with a gutsy 2-1 win at Le­ices­ter.

James Ward-Prowse’s penalty and Shane Long’s first goal for nine months earned vic­tory at the King Power Sta­dium.

Wil­fred Ndidi pulled a goal back in the sec­ond half for the Foxes but Claude Puel suf­fered de­feat against his for­mer club. Southamp­ton, who had Yan Valery sent off be­fore half time, moved a point above the Premier League drop zone after just a fourth win of the sea­son. Three of them have come un­der boss Ralph Hasen­huttl, pic­tured, who re­placed Mark Hughes last month.

Le­ices­ter dropped to eighth with boss Puel un­der fire from fans.
