Victory lifts Saints out of drop zone
» 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.
